Tom Veronneau '70

- A junior starter on coach Bob Cousy's 24-4 NIT runner-up team of 1968-69, this big man began his career at BC as a walk-on.

- Fortunately, Cousy saw something in Veronneau, who went on to set an NCAA field-goal percentage record of 68.7 percent in 1968-69. Despite finishing with the BC career field-goal percentage mark, Veronneau was known primarily as a defensive stopper, guarding the likes of Spencer Haywood and Wes Unseld during his magical junior campaign.

- He served as team captain as a senior, and gained Academic All-America second-team honors after the season.

- Inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1988.
