In his final year with Illinois State, Deontae Hawkins led the Redbirds in scoring and rebounding, and nearly took them to the NCAA Tournament. Now, he’ll take one more jab at the tournament—this time, with BC.
Often, bench players are an afterthought. But with Luke Maye’s game-winning shot in Sunday’s South Regional final, everyone was reminded how important a supporting cast really is.
Recently, Boston College has lived in the cellar of the ACC, as losing has become more of a norm. Blowouts, close losses, you name it. BC has seen it all.
Ky Bowman’s electrifying play in the back half of the season complemented Jerome Robinson and gave fans a sense of hope. Yet it wasn’t enough to right Christian’s rebuild. BC still sits at the bottom of the ACC.
Nearing the five-minute mark in the first half, Ky Bowman leapt to block to a Bryant Crawford shot. But the All-ACC Freshman fell awkwardly on his right leg. His season was finished, and effectively, so was the Eagles’.
The Eagles couldn’t snap their 14-game losing streak in the last game of the regular season, falling to Clemson 82-68 on Saturday evening.
BC entered halftime with a two-point lead over Virginia Tech on Saturday. Yet, once again, the Eagles let their intermission lead slide. The Hokies shot 75 percent from the field in the second half to top BC 91-75.
Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski recently made headlines for taking tough measures against his slumping team, but until he takes serious action against Grayson Allen his actions look hypocritical.
Jordan Chatman, Jerome Robinson, and Ky Bowman dominated for the Eagles, but Wake Forest still emerged victorious in BC’s second consecutive game that came down to the wire.
Wake’s John Collins dominated BC’s frontcourt to the tune of 26 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks, dealing the Eagles another defeat.
