It was a tough season for the Boston College Eagles as they finished with a dismal record of 8 and 24. A new era of Boston College basketball is underway, however. Coach Steve Donahue was fired after he led the Eagles to the worst season in school history. It is now Jim Christian’s job to bring the Eagles back to glory. Christian spent the previous two seasons as the head coach of Ohio University. Guard and leading scorer from last year Olivier Hanlan will be the go to guy for coach Christian on the court in the 2014-2015 season. Hanlan averaged an impressive 19 points per game last season and is widely regarded as one of the best guards in the country. The Eagles will also be returning many other key contributors from last year’s team. Boston College fans can expect a much improved 2014-2015 season.
The Boston College Eagles operate under Coach Steve Donahue at the Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. They have made nine appearances in the Sweet Sixteen but have never made it to the Final Four. They’ve been to the NCAA Tournament 18 times, most recently in 2009. 22 Boston College players have made the NBA, including Jared Dudley, Reggie Jackson, Dana Barros, Howard Eisley, and Craig Smith. While not necessarily known for a strong basketball program, BC has put together good teams with decent players on occasion and look to be doing that this season.
