Boston College Eagles Basketball
Boston College first formed its basketball program in 1904 and has had a proud history of winning ever since.
Some of the most notable coaches ever to walk the sideline at BC include Chuck Daly, Jim O'Brien, Bob Cousy, Tom Davis, and
Gary Williams. The Eagles will be looking to rebound from a disappointing 2013-2014 season in which they finished near the
bottom of the ACC standings and failed to be a participant in the postseason. The 2014-2015 season will be the first under
new head coach Jim Christian and he will be inheriting a talented squad that will enter the season with a chip on their shoulders
and who will be looking to prove that they are once again going to be a major factor in the ACC. Every team in the ACC is
looking to take down the two predominant Carolina schools in the the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils and
this is also true for Boston College who always gives both schools all that they can handle. Last year's champs Virginia have
also become quite a rival of the Eagles who will be looking to take down the Cavs in an effort to prove that they are serious
contenders for the top spot in the standings. The addition last year of Syracuse renewed a rivalry the two schools had when
they would annually face off against each other at least twice in a season and should provide for plenty of thrilling match
ups for years to come. These are exciting times for the Boston College Eagles and every die hard BC fan will want to be there
right from the start of what should be a historic chapter in the program's long history.
Boston College Basketball
College basketball is virtually synonymous with the ACC and it is never easy for a team to navigate the
tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses North Carolina and Duke always are staunch competition and with the recent
addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame to the mix the conference is only getting tougher. Altogether
the ACC has won 15 National Championships with North Carolina leading the way with five. Schools from the ACC have reached
the Final Four sixty times and are always making a big impact in the Tournament. Playing such a tough regular season schedule
annually leaves the teams from the ACC who are selected for the Tournament ready to take on any college in the country and
allows for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. When it comes to college basketball there is arguably
no conference that is historically better or more dominant than the ACC.

buzzer when the Eagles' side erupts after another big win and their fans flow out of the arena in jubilation.

to make an 19th appearance in March of 2014. The school has reached the Sweet Sixteen nine times, and the Elite Eight nine
