Featuring 12 teams that made NCAA Tournament appearances a year ago, the Eagles play tough non-conference games against Texas A&M and Providence and face the regular gauntlet of the ACC.
It may be the nation’s second-tier tournament, but the NIT is filled with no shortage of storylines, talented players, and top-notch matchups as the Eagles begin postseason play for the first time since 2010-11.
As preparation for the upcoming conference tournament that starts on Tuesday, here’s our final regular season edition of the ACC Power Rankings—with slight changes up top.
The Eagles gave up 14 3-pointers and had a noticeable lack of production from their role players, which was too much to overcome in a 17-point loss to Notre Dame on Saturday.
Matt Farrell knocked down 10 shots from beyond the arc, leading the charge for a Notre Dame offense that once again had BC’s number, capturing the season sweep of the Eagles.
Jerome Robinson single-handedly willed the Eagles back in the second half, but a weak supporting cast and consistent defensive breakdowns resulted in a 23rd-straight ACC road loss.
Against Notre Dame, Jerome Robinson logged a career-high 46 points—the most scored by any ACC player this season and three shy of the program record—but even that kind of outing wasn’t enough to make up for BC’s defensive blunders.
Despite 29 points from Ky Bowman, BC couldn’t pull off its first victory against a Top-25 team in the Jim Christian Era.
