- 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.
