Boston College is coming off of a 9-22 (4-12 ACC) season with an unimpressive RPI of 245. They do return 4 of their top 5 scorers, including sophomore forward Ryan Anderson (11.2 ppg), who was also their leading rebounder (7.4 rpg) from last season. Senior G Matt Humphrey, who averaged 10.3 ppg and 3.4 rpg, graduated early and transferred to West Virginia for his final year of eligibility. Jordan Daniels, who was slated to be BC’s starting point guard, announced that he was leaving the team 4 days prior to the beginning of the season.

This season, Boston College will start 3 sophomores in the frontcourt, 2 freshmen in the backcourt, and come off of a season opening 84-70 victory over Florida International University.

Of course the main storyline in this Baylor vs. Boston College matchup is the unceremonious departure of Brady Heslip upon the arrival of BC coach Steve Donauhe. Brady had been recruited by Coach Al Skinner, who was fired at the conclusion of the 2010 season. When Donahue took over the team, he informed Heslip that he didn't have a use for him on the team. Heslip transferred to Baylor prior to the start of the 2010-11 season, but was forced to sit out due to NCAA transfer rules. During the 2011-12 season Heslip was a 45.5% 3 point shooter, averaged 10.2 ppg, and helped lead the way in Baylor’s second Elite 8 appearance in 3 seasons.
