Olivier Hanlon Goes Off for 38 Points in Boston College Win

College Hoops Player of the Day for Sunday, November 17, 2013

Opening the season with three straight losses, the Boston College Eagles got their first win with an 82-79 win over Florida Atlantic

Needing every bit of Olivier Hanlon's season-high 38 points, BC scored the win in the second round of the 2K Sports Classic at Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

Hanlon, a 6'4" sophomore guard, was 11-for-19 from the floor, knocking down four of 10 three-pointers. He also canned 12 of 14 from the line, scoring 15 of his 38 points in the final 8:53 of the game.

Hanlon's scoring deluge ties Pendarvis Williams of Norfolk State and Drake's Richard Carter for the most points in a single game this season.

A career high of 41 points was put up by Hanlon in the opening round of last season's ACC tournament, an 84-64 win over Georgia Tech.

Boston College's leading scorer, Hanlon is averaging 24.5 points per outing, after going for 15.4, on average, last season.

The Eagles will be looking for their second consecutive win when they meet #19 UConn, Thursday night.

NOTABLE: #12 North Carolina was stunned by Belmont, 83-80, Sunday, in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off, when J.J. Mann dropped in a three-pointer with 13.1 seconds left. It was the first defeat of the season for the 2-1 Tar Heels. Belmont, out of the Ohio Valley conference, improved to 3-1.

Olivier Hanlan Sets ACC Frosh Record in Boston College Win over Georgia Tech

College Hoops Player of the Day for Thursday, March 14, 2013

With a 16-16 record and a 7-11 mark in conference, the Boston College Eagles are likely headed to the NIT rather than the NCAA tournament, but freshman Olivier Hanlan made certain that he'd leave a permanent mark on the ACC tournament.

Hanlan scored a career-high 41 points in the Eagles' 84-64 win over Georgia Tech in the opening round of the ACC championship, the most ever scored by an ACC freshman in the history of the conference, post-season or otherwise.

Hanlan had a nice season for the Eagles, scoring at a 15.4 ppg clip, but his performance on Thursday afternoon was one for the ages, making 14 of 18 shots, including eight of 10 from beyond the arc, adding five of six from the foul line.

In his 36 minutes of floor time, Hanlan also collected five boards, make three steals and dished a pair of assists. BC will play top-seeded Miami at noon EDT on Friday.

Elsewhere, the Big East tournament produced a pair of semi-final match-ups as Syracuse topped Pitt, 62-59, and Georgetown cruised past Cincinnati, 62-43. Georgetown and SU will meet for the third time this season at 7:00 pm EDT Friday night. Georgetown won the previous two meetings handily.

On the other side of the bracket, #4 Louisville overwhelmed Villanova, 74-55, and Notre Dame stopped Marquette, 73-65, setting up a 9:00 pm EDT meeting between the Cardinals and the Fighting Irish.

Conference tournament action heats up this weekend as all conferences will crown champions prior to the NCAA committee selections on Sunday at 6:00 pm EDT.
