Thoughts on Boston College

Final Score: Boston College 79, Maryland 75

I’m gonna keep this one brief because the game made me sick and, well, it’s finals week, but here goes.

  • Jordan Williams might be the best player in the ACC. He just continues to amaze, night after night, and Sunday was no exception. He finished with 27 points and 13 rebounds against a zone that limited his opportunities to get the ball, and the Eagles really had no answer for him inside. Oh, and by the way – he played 38 minutes.
  • There is really no reason why Terrell Stoglin sits on the bench anymore. Adrian Bowie had seven assists and picked up his game at the end, but he is still unwilling to take open threes (judging by how the Terps shot from beyond the arc yesterday, that may actually be a good thing). Stogs was again the dynamic player that he has been all year for the Terps, and finished with 14 points, tied with Dino Gregory for second on the team.
  • Sean Mosley and Cliff Tucker are still struggling – a lot. Tucker was 1-7 from deep and Mosley scored seven points with three turnovers.
  • For all of the struggles Maryland had from beyond the arc, Boston College found nothing but success. The Eagles were 13-29 from long range, including 6-10 from Biko Paris, who scored 22 points. Corey Raji, not a usual deep threat by any means, hit a late three pointer to take the final lead.
  • And again, free throw. 8-14 isn’t dreadful (although still really bad), but at the end of the game, when the Terps needed them most, they missed three free throws in a row.

    Raji wasn’t a 3 pt threat under the prior system as he wasn’t permitted to shoot 3s and was asked to play down low. When Donahue came in, one of the first things he said was that he remembered scouting Raji out of high school and that he actually had a good shot for someone his size. His outside shooting has been encouraged this year, and though it wasn’t great in the Maryland game, he’s been hitting it at a 33% clip prior to that and has the green light.
