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.
At first, Ky Bowman was an inconsistent role player. Now, he’s one of the ACC’s best and, as a result, The Heights’ Breakout Male Athlete of the Year.
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.
Two years in a row, the Eagles have played North Carolina down to the wire. Both seasons, the Tar Heels have ended up in the national final. Are BC’s moral victories within the ACC legitimate, or are they meaningless?
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.
