Boston College opened their season in a fairly unimpressive fashion beating New Hampshire by 10 in a game they trailed at halftime. Then again BC had Tyrese Rice and Shamari Spears suspended one game for playing in a basketball tournament they was not previously approved which sounds a lot like what Raymond Felton did in 2005 that ended up causing UNC to drop one at Santa Clara. Something tells me BC is not going to end their season the same way those Heels did.
Georgia Tech decided to show up after allowing my alma mater UNC Greensboro to waltz into Atlanta and handed the Yellow Jackets a nice opening season loss. Not that they were much better in knocking off Tennessee State by 14 since they trailed at the half. Obviously the loss of Critteton and Young was a bigger deal than we all thought.
Maryland and Virginia opened up with easy wins. In both cases it was all about the guard play with Sean Singletary scoring 19 to along with six assists and five boards in beating Vermont. The Terps got a combined 33 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds from Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes while taking down one of the 133 D-I schools in Florida. In this case it was North Florida which can probably be found in Port St Lucie if the location of South Florida in Tampa is any clue as to the method they use for placing the schools down there.
