Boston College Basketball Releases 2013-14 Roster

Chris Trotman

On Wednesday, the Boston College men's basketball team released its preliminary 2013-14 roster, complete with newcomers F Garland Owens (Gaithersburg, MD), G Darryl Hicks (Louisville, KY), G Sam Donahue (Pawcatuck, CT) and Notre Dame junior transfer Alex Dragicevich (Northbrook, IL).

Though the roster has been released, it's still only July and we're a good few months away from the start of the college basketball season. Given that the season is still a ways away, I thought it would be as good a time as any to answer the really hard-hitting questions like what jersey numbers the new kids wearing.

Owens, a small forward from Massanutten Military Academy in Virginia, will be wearing #0. An odd choice to be sure but one that's got some recent history. Owens becomes the third player to rock the #0, joining Salah Abdo and now Oklahoma City guard Reggie Jackson.

My only regret is that Owens didn't settle on the Uka Agbai #00 special.

Hicks, a shooting guard out of Trinity HS in Louisville, will wear the #10 jersey. A popular jersey number, the #10 has been worn by a number of former Eagle greats including John Austin, Howard Eisley and former Boston College coach Jim O'Brien. Hicks becomes the 16th Eagle to wear the #10 jersey and first since Jordan Daniels.

Sam Donahue, a preferred walk-on from Connecticut, gets #15, a number made popular by Bill Curley. Donahue becomes the 9th Eagle to wear the #15 jersey and first since Rakim Sanders did from 2007-2010.

Finally, Dragicevich, who has been with the program since the beginning of last season but is only now eligible to play per NCAA transfer rules, wears the #23. Sean Marshall most recently wore the #23 jersey, one made famous by Varsity Club HOF member Michael Adams.
