Lost in all this football stuff is the huge win for the men's basketball team. Last year when speaking with a basketball staffer, he said that when the freshmen hit the road for ACC play they all looked like deer in headlights. They were overwhelmed by the stage and playing at Cameron or against North Carolina or how loud things got at Clemson. Those days are clearly over. Now that doesn't mean anything yet. They are still young and will still have off nights. But this shows they are capable of getting some big wins. It also provides a real resume win for a team that looks bubblish. In addition to the good defense and Rice playing like Rice, the real boost came from Sanders and Jackson. If both can play up to their potential on a regular basis, this becomes a very dangerous team.
Here is what the two biggest BC basketball boosters out there had to say:
-- Andy Katz
-- Bob Ryan
