He's a Dude: Montrezl Harrell, junior forward. Pronounced mon-TREZ (with a silent "L") HAIR-uhl. The Tarboro, N.C. native is averaging 15.1 points and 9.1 rebounds a game for the Cards. As a junior, recorded 12 double-doubles last season, including 11 in the final 22 games of the season. Scored in double-digits an incredible 30 times...again, as a sophomore. BC will have its hands full.
Fun Fact: The very first meeting between BC and Louisville on the hardwood occurred during the 1996 NIT. Boston College won 96-90 in triple-overtime. To this day it remains the only game in Boston College program history to last more than 2 overtime periods.
