Like most bottom feeder college basketball programs this time of year, Boston College’s season came to an end yesterday following a 22 point loss to Florida State in the first round of the ACC tournament. The loss closes out a season where the Eagles went just 7-25 overall and failed to pick up a conference win, finishing with a lopsided 0-19 record in ACC play.
The noticeably young Eagles roster is anchored down by just 4 upperclassmen, which only two of whom are seniors. One senior in particular, Center Dennis Clifford, took the loss to Florida State especially hard. During the post-game interview, Clifford was asked what his best memory of playing college basketball will be. It wasn’t pretty.
I guess when you play on a team that actually did not win a game in the 2016 calendar year, all you really have to look forward to is the free meals that you pick up along the way; perks of being a DI athlete. It is worth noting, if you don’t recall, that one of the times Boston College went out to eat, more than half of the team ended up getting the Chipotle shits for days on end after eating some bad burritos earlier this season, but I guess when you play on a terrible basketball team, even food poisoning seems more appealing than going out and losing 19 straight conference games..
