Wow. I'm shocked.
-No one saw this one coming. On the road, at Senior night, against a team who just came off a win against Duke, nobody gave BC a chance. We've had a history of not showing up to the big games, but it looks like times have changed. Donahue has made a dramatic impact on this team and I look forward to more of this in the future.
-After falling behind 4-0 early, the Eagles made a run and quickly quited the crowd. Led by Jackson, BC got the lead all the way up to 16. This was when I knew that this wasn't going to be another BC letdown.
-The game was won in the second half, though. After the Hokies cut the lead to 6, BC put the game away with great defense and flawless execution. We couldn't be stopped on offense. VT wasn't hitting anything. It was the perfect storm.
-How about John Cahill? Getting his second straight start, Cahill knocked down two 3's and was money at the line.
-Raji and Reggie were huge on a night where Trapani did not score well. Reggie started us off and Raji finished. Both guys were aggressive and will need to be for the rest of the season.
-Other bright spots: Southern and Moton quality minutes, rebounding, transition defense.
-Tremendous win tonight, but it will mean nothing if we lose to Wake at home. I do not anticipate that, but it is not crazy to think. Hopefully the seniors will play big and get it done. This win probably will bounce us back in to all of those projections. We now control our destiny, which is always good.
