Book Review: “The Greatest Game” by Richard Bradley

The Greatest Game is Richard Bradley’s exploration of the 1978 one-game playoff between the Red Sox and Yankees for a spot in the AL Championship. The game is best remembered for Bucky “F—ing” Dent’s three-run home run in the seventh inning that turned the momentum in New York’s favor. The Yankees won 5-4, beat the […]

Eagles Snap Slump with Big First Half

Something had to give. Sure, Clemson came into Conte Forum as the 21st ranked team in the nation, but it also had lost its last two games. For Boston College, the drought was even worse, having lost five of its last seven. What gave was both teams. The Eagles dominated the first half, while the Tigers […]

Loose Ball Layup Pushes Virginia Tech By BC

Boston College had trailed for most of the game, but had the lead when it mattered most. The Eagles battled back to a three point advantage with 29 seconds remaining.

But for the third consecutive game the Eagles dominated for 30 minutes only to almost let it slip away down the stretch. BC has won […]

Eagles Squeak By Friars

On two separate occasions in the first half, Boston College held an 18 point lead over Providence. In the second half the Eagles needed every point of that cushion to escape the Dunkin Donuts Center with a 82-77 win. The Eagles saw the Friars take three separate second half leads, the last of which was a 77-75 […]
