The schedule features a non-conference portion highlighted by local rivals Holy Cross and BU, as well as the always-tough ACC slate, which includes games against two teams who made the Final Four last season: Louisville and Notre Dame
In his six years with the Eagles, Johnson was just 68-115, including 19-77 in ACC play and failed to finish a single season above .500, let alone reach double-digit wins each of the past two years.
Following a three-game homestand, the Eagles will travel to Tallahassee on Thursday night to take on No. 9 Florida State, their third top-10 opponent in as many games.
The Eagles were outscored in the paint, 64-14, and saw a nine-point halftime deficit stretch to 34 as they were overmatched by No. 5 Notre Dame on Saturday afternoon.
Even though Georgia Pineau racked up 11 points in the first 10 minutes of play, and the Eagles stormed out to a 23-12 lead, their offensive firepower was unsustainable, allowing Louisville to run away with a 35-point win.
Dropping their ninth game in a row, the Eagles once again failed to eclipse the 60-point mark and committed a season-high 35 turnovers, including 20-plus in the first half alone, against the Yellow Jackets.
The Eagles enter Atlanta, Ga. on a month-long losing streak, looking to beat Georgia Tech on the road for the first time in nine years and avenge last season’s first-round, ACC Tournament loss.
BC and N.C. State—two teams trending in opposite directions—will face off on Sunday afternoon in Raleigh, N.C. The Eagles have lost seven in a row, and the Wolfpack is on the verge of its longest win streak since the 2000-01 season.
