Frank Fitzgerald '71

- Frank came to Boston College from Saint Joseph's High School in Metuchen, N.J., and enjoyed an outstanding career under coaches Bob Cousy (1968-69) and Chuck Daly (1969-71).

- Often overshadowed by star teammates like Terry Driscoll, Billy Evans and Jim O'Brien, Fitzgerald played a key role in each of his three varsity seasons. He finished his career with 1,042 points and 538 rebounds in 78 games.

- Among his most memorable moments was a last-second jump shot against Saint Joseph's on Jan. 5, 1969 that gave BC a 76-74 victory in the Palestra. That victory began a 19-game winning streak that didn't end until the National Invitation Tournament's title game.

- Inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1990.
