Today marks the beginning of the 2014-15 college basketball season and I'll give my thoughts on what should happen over the next five or so months. Who should make the Final Four in April? Which teams enter the year as dark-horses? Gonzaga looks like it could have its best and deepest team ever - can they finally break through and make a run at a national championship? Can Richard Pitino's Minnesota squad pull off the upset in tonight's featured game against his father, Rick's, Louisville team?
Coming off the Steve Donahue era, the Boston College Eagles were a team last year in search of an identity. With old players shoehorned into a new system, the team endured growing pains en route to a four-win improvement over the season prior. Unfortunately, though, the end result was a 13-19 record, their fourth straight sub-.500 season.
Year Two has a decidedly different feel to things after the team underwent an overhaul. Junior Olivier Hanlan departed for the professional ranks, drafted this past spring by the Utah Jazz. Now playing for Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania, Boston College will need to find a new go-to scorer to replace the ACC's best shooter a year ago.
To start the year, it looks like Eli Carter will provide that spark. A transfer guard from Florida, Carter will be the lynchpin and sparkplug to the BC offense in 15-16. It's the biggest switch in the new-look Eagles, who return only a couple of key cogs from last year. Idy Diallo, injured a year ago, will see the court for the first time in maroon and gold, along with big man Johncarlos Reyes. Jerome Robinson and AJ Turner will provide depth, while Ervens Meznieks brings the European style of play, with its sharpshooting tall players.
They'll combine with the returning Garland Owens and Dennis Clifford to give BC a new feel in 15-16. The Eagles will try to work their way up the ACC ranks this season after finishing in the bottom four a year ago, a league featuring last year's national champion in Duke. Combined with a tough non-conference schedule, this is going to be an intriguing run for Jim Christian as he tries to resurrect the proud program of Jared Dudley, Craig Smith, and Reggie Jackson.
So tune in at 8 PM EST on Wednesday as BC Interruption breaks down and previews the Eagles and gets you ready for the opening game, this weekend, against St. Francis Brooklyn!
The BTPowerhouse staff previews the 2015-16 college basketball season and the opening weekend of play for the Big Ten conference across the board. To help facilitate discussion, SBNation's Ricky O'Donnell and BTPowerhouse Contributor Joshua Stern join the podcast.
On this edition of The Broad Street Line, we'll recap the wild, Sunday night matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. The Birds are just a half-game behind first place in the NFC East, and with a favorable schedule coming up, they pretty much control their destiny when it comes to the NFC playoffs.
Later in the show, we'll preview the top teams in college basketball with a twist: Instead of looking at the team's who will be in the mix for the Final Four, we'll tell you the schools you should keep an eye on when it comes to future NBA talent. So, for all of that and more, come and take a ride on The Broad Street Line: The future of sports talk radio has finally arrived.
