Boston College Nusings and random stats


The better part of a decade has passed since SU last played Boston College. Can't say I've noticed. This once proud program that went to the post-season 17 times as a member of the Big East, 11 NCAA Tournaments, reached the Sweet 16 five times and the Regional Finals twice, has been to a mere 3 NCAA's and 1 NIT since joining the ACC. Post-season play looks unlikely this year as well despite it only being January 13.

*Boston College was the only charter member of the Big East not reach a Final Four. Which I believe (based on pure speculation) was a major factor in the league asking them to leave in 2005 if fabricated memory serves.

Big East School B.C. Reminds me of: Pittsburgh Why not? Both had periods of sustained success and prolonged mediocrity. They're also the two schools with the most seasons in the Big East without reaching a Final Four (get it together losers).

Player I think of when I think of Boston College: Bill Curley 1990-94

Curley was a beast. He went a respectable 3-5 against SU. A record good enough to be annoying, but not good enough to garner true hatred. It may not have mattered much anyways given the way he went out. The mid-90's were a low point for the Big East as far as NCAA Tournament performance, and as a conference there wasn't a whole lot to celebrate. So when Curley and a #9 seeded Boston College physically dominated a soft #1 seed UNC squad and had Dean Smith whining in one of the most enjoyable post-game press conference's I've ever watched, he forever became one of my favorite non-SU players.

Danya Abrams and his attempts to lure Otis Hill away from us come to mind, as does Troy Bell and his utimatley unsuccessful assault on Moten's conference scoring record. But in the end, it's Curley.
