Underappreciated: Troy Bell

This article on the difficulty of averaging more than 20 points and 10 rebounds per game in college included a little factoid about former Eagle Troy Bell:
Troy Bell is the only player from any of the Big Six conferences to average 20-plus points in three seasons since 1999. Bell averaged 20.4 in 2000-01, 21.6 in 2001-02 and 25.2 in 2002-03.

With all that has happened since he left (Smith, Dudley, the ACC move) I feel like many BC fans have already lost perspective on how good Troy Bell was. Little nuggets like this serve as nice reminders.

i'll always remember him fondly as the player who resurected the program after the departure of JOB. i remember seeing him the first time at conte as a freshman, raining down threes, and there was a buzz in the stands. little did we know the ride from worst to first that we were in for. special.
