Thanks to its Big Three, Boston College will live another day. Tyrese Rice (26 points), Sean Marshall (21), and Jared Dudley (19) lived up to their billing Thursday afternoon, pacing the 7th-seeded Eagles to an 84-75 win over Texas Tech in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
At the 7:20 mark in the second half, Tyrese Rice was having a great game. The sophomore guard had 22 points already and was the only reason why his Boston College Eagles weren't being embarrassed by Miami, the lowest seed (#12) in the ACC Tournament.
Sunday was a day of mixed emotions for Jared Dudley. The Boston College senior forward notched the 2,000-point mark in the second half, but his Eagles stumbled in their regular season finale in Atlanta.
Leave it to the seniors. For Jared Dudley and Sean Marshall, their last hurrah at Conte Forum was a special one.
