All-time starting five: Boston College

The O List's all-time starting five for Boston College basketball:

John Austin (1963-66): The Eagles' all-time scoring average leader with a career average of 27.1 points per game, including a 29.2 average as a sophomore.

Michael Adams (1981-85): Was the school's fifth-leading all-time scorer when he retired. Adams went on to have a long professional career as a dangerous 3-point shooter.

Craig Smith (2002-06): Big and burly, Smith (top) finished his BC career as the program's second all-time scorer and the all-time leading rebounder.

Jared Dudley (2003-07): With a game built on strong fundamentals, Dudley (above) was chosen the ACC player of the year in his senior season when he averaged 19 points per game and shot 56 percent from the field.

Terry Driscoll (1966-69): Led the team to the 1969 NIT finals where he was named the tournament's MVP. Was the fourth player selected in the 1969 NBA draft.

"Was the school's fifth-leading all-time scorer when he retired." I didn't realize college students retired from college.

Next time you do your poorly researched list, make sure to include the Big East's all-time leading scorer and best player in school history, Troy Bell.

Who cares about the johnny come lately ACC schools. Boston College Basketball has no business in the ACC.

Dana Barros, Troy Bell, Howard Eisley, Bill Curley, Jay Murphy, John Bagley, Tyrese Rice... You could put a lot of players on there. Pretty good list, but you can't leave out Troy Bell.
