Last night, the Boston College Eagles men’s basketball team went to Blacksburg, Virginia and came out with not only their first ACC win of the season, but their first ACC road win as a team. When players like Ryan Anderson, Dennis Clifford, and Lonnie Jackson were freshmen, they searched all year for that accomplishment outside of Conte Forum but they did not find it. Now, with some experience and a surprisingly good freshman backcourt, the Eagles are starting to move in the right direction.

Wednesday night’s game against Virginia Tech was imperfect. Free throw shooting was impossibly bad for long stretches and there were a couple defensive lapses; further, the press continues to give them trouble. In some previous games, Boston College has made careless mistakes and has not been able to maintain any sort of consistency. In spite of that, the Eagles are 9-6, matching last year’s win total with sixteen regular-season games remaining. It is all but certain now that this BC version will win more games than they did in 2011-12.
