BC RETURNS HOME TO HOST PITT
After a short two-game road swing, Boston College returns home to take on Pittsburgh on Wednesday night at 8 p.m.
It will be the only meeting this season between the two teams. It is the first time the two are meeting as ACC members. The last time they played was in 2005.
BC has lost six of its last seven outings and is coming off a 1-1 week on the road. The win came at previously undefeated Syracuse in overtime on February 19, 62-59.
Pittsburgh has lost five of its last seven games, including three straight. Two of those losses came at home.
The Eagles are 18-28 against Pitt all-time with a 9-9 mark in Chestnut Hill.
BC FALLS AT MIAMI
Junior Patrick Heckmann led Boston College with a season-high 15 points as the Eagles lost at Miami on Saturday, 69-42.
Thirteen of his points came in the first half. He also had four rebounds.
Sophomore Olivier Hanlan recorded 11 points and six rebounds.
Miami started the game on a 14-6 run, but Boston College responded with an 11-4 run over the next 5:17 to cut the deficit to one. Heckmann hit a pair of 3-pointers in that span.
The Hurricanes recovered with a quick 7-2 spurt that built the lead back to 27-19. They took a 27-22 lead into the half.
Miami scored seven unanswered points early in the second half to extend its lead to 41-28 with 14:08 left.
BC couldn't get closer than eight points the rest of the way.
HANLAN SEVEN AWAY FROM 1,000
Sophomore Olivier Hanlan is seven points away from reaching the 1,000-point mark in his career.
He will become just the third player in Boston College history to reach 1,000 points in his sophomore season, joining Troy Bell (1999-2001) and Craig Smith (2002-04) on that list. Bell and Smith are first and second at BC in career scoring, respectively.
In addition, Hanlan will be the 29th player in ACC history to reach the 1,000-point plateau during his sophomore season. He will be the first Eagle on that chart.
