A.J. Turner, who announced on Wednesday that he will take his talents to Northwestern, is the fifth BC player recruited by head coach Jim Christian to transfer in the last three years.
Coming into his freshman year, AJ Turner was the most highly recruited Eagles prospect in close to a decade. But, now a sophomore, Turner, who saw a reduction in playing time this season, has decided to transfer.
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.
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.
After a slow start to the game, Georgia Tech became red-hot on offense in the second half and handed BC its ninth straight loss.
While the score may not have shown it in the first half, BC struggled from the field for all 40 minutes of Saturday’s game against Louisville. When the shots weren’t falling, Louisville drew out its lead, ultimately winning 90-67.
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.
