- Roger McCready came to Boston College from Xaverian (N.Y.) High School in the fall of 1982. At 6-5, he was an undersized small forward, but equally determined to battle in the post.
- By the time he finished his collegiate career, McCready had proven to fans and foes alike what heart and determination could accomplish. A four-year letterman, he played a key role on the Eagles' team that earned two NCAA Tournament berths and one NIT bid. The Eagles advanced to the NCAA Tournament's regional semifinals in both 1983 and 1985.
- He increased his scoring average in each of his four years - from 3.9 ppg as a freshman, to 9.5 ppg as a sophomore, to 14.8 ppg as a junior to 18.1 ppg as a senior. McCready, who tallied 1,365 collegiate points, rankes 13th on the school's career scoring list. As a senior, he led the Eagles in both scoring and rebounding.
- Inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002.
