BC roars back after awful start against Pitt

If BC starts as poorly as they did  -- including Robinson's foul trouble -- against any team other than Pitt, they don't come back. But Pitt is terrible, so BC was able to run away with the game and secure a winning season.

Even with the extended time on the bench Robinson scored 27. If he keeps this up, he is going to be first team All ACC. A really strong finish puts him in player of the year conversations. The foul trouble and blowout also meant that Baker got more minutes and actually looked confident with the ball. He finished with 11.

BC takes on Notre Dame next. Nothing is a must win yet, but all homes games should be Ws from here on out.

ND is a must win and stuff it down their throats.

Go BC!

ND is definitely a must win. Not entirely sure what you're thinking ATL.

The stars are aligned. Hope the team treats a big crowd to a resounding win on Saturday. Been too long since we've beaten those imposters from South Bend. Let's send them home knowing they've lost to a better team.

They haven't yet clinched a winning record, as they could lose out and go 0-1 in the ACC tournament to finish 16-16. Still, it's highly unlikely that happens and even if it did, this is the first non-losing season since 2010-11. You have to say this is a really nice job by Christian and the future looks even better with Jairus Hamilton and Tabbs joining the team next season.

Watch the refs against ND. Should be shady.

And get ready for them to lose their next 3 games. They have been a tease all season. Good run and then lost to Nebraska/Providence. Good run and then lost to Syracuse and VT. Good run and .......

Proud of the boys sucks Hamilton and tabs get one year of Robinson. If he was a sophomore the future would be so bright m. Still predict 20 wins next yeAr.

TWO DAYS TILL BATTER UP PLAY BALL !!!!!!!! SANTA CLARA on the Left COAST FRIDAY>
SCARY first half with Pitt BC came roaring back from 15 point first half deficit.
The type of game that is often a BC problem.
NOW we must take care of the FAUX Irish Sat. and that BAST Boheim on the 28th get these two and
win an ACC game and hopefully make the 65 for NCAA.
Hopefully Jarmond will have the new women's coach not too long after seasons end.

First road ACC win in 3 years...

ND is an absolute must win, as are one of the Florida trips. Most metrics don't even have BC close to the bubble. Efficiency and SoS sucks. BC can really only afford to lose one of the five remaining games to even stay in the fringe discussion. We are not that close. Final possession at UVA would have been a huge discriminator in the Quadrant 1 pile.

Team is a tease.

It would be nice if Conte is rocking on Saturday afternoon.

There's no competition from the Celtics or Bruins that day, and it would be a bright sign of where this program is going if 8,600 fans show up!!!

Go BC - beat ND!!!!!

Georgia Eagle said...

Jack, don't expect any support from local Bostonions. They are totally indifferent to BC. You should know that.

Knucklehead said...

They need to prove they are legit. That means overcome the refs in the ND game, beat NC State in Raleigh and beat Syracuse at home. They are not beating FSU and Miami on the road after beating them at home.

They will make it to the final four of the NIT. No undercurrent.
