My alma mater beat Boston College in an exciting overtime game tonight, 60-59 to advance to the NCAA hoops regional final. In typical fashion from Rollie Massimino’s days on the bench, they were losing for the first 38.5 minutes, took a brief lead, and then had to go into OT when BC hit a three-pointer with a few seconds left in regulation. If I were Boston College, that would be a bitter pill to swallow. It’s tough to have your season end to a team you manhandled most of the game. I cannot recall a time BC has ever beaten us in a big spot. Not long ago, BC and Villanova were both in the Big East, but BC defected to the Atlantic Coast Conference. It didn’t help- they still can’t win when it counts.
