FINALLY! BC Takes Care of Mid-Major NJIT

What’s the best way to forget struggles against mid-major opponents? The New Jersey Institute of Technology. The former Division II program visited Conte Forum, but Boston College must have not receieved the memo NJIT is now Divison I. The Eagles acted as if the Highlanders didn’t belong on the same court, winning 89-32.

For the first four minutes of the game, Boston College routed back to its bad habits against inferior teams. At the 16:02 mark in the first half, BC actually trailed 10-7 before erupting on a 38-4 run to close out the half. The Highlanders failed to convert on a field goal attempt the final 11 minutes of the half.

The runs continued in the second half as the Eagles came out of the gate on a 10-1 run, extending their lead to 55-15. Rakim Sanders led the way for the Eagles in their 57 point win with 21. Joe Trapani wasn’t far behind with 18.

The game against NJIT finishes off BC’s weaker opponents as conference play continues Saturday when the Eagles go on the road to face Clemson. Boston College will make a pit stop in Durham, North Carolina to take on Duke January 13.


Joe Trapani: The forward finished with 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting. He also grabbed eight boards, had two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes of play.


The Entire Highlander Team: Thirty-two points the entire game. They took 51 shots and saw only 12 fall throw the net.

Fat Lady Sings

Halftime: The Eagles have blown some second half leads, but none that were 55-15.

Big Number

12 : The Highlanders made only 12 shots the entire game, a record low in Conte Forum.

Stat To Know

6:30: With 6:30 remaining in the first half, Reggie Jackson nailed one of his three three-pointers to give the Eagles a 35-13 lead. Boston College didn’t need another bucket from this point on.
