Boston College Basketball Draws Baylor In Charleston Classic

The college basketball season is still several months away, but dates, opponents, and pre-season tournament brackets are already starting to leak out. Boston College was scheduled to take part in the Charleston Classic in late November, but their first round opponent was unknown, until today.

The 2012 Charleston Classic presented by Foster Grant, an eight-team men’s college basketball tournament, will feature 12 games over the three days. Each team will compete in one game per day, advancing through a bracket-tournament format.

Tournament highlights:

  • In ESPN.com’s early men’s preseason top 25 poll, Baylor is ranked No. 11 and will face Boston College in first-round action at 3 p.m. on ESPNU

Ouch. Good luck with that.In addition to having to square off against a team that reached the Elite Eight last year, before falling to eventual National Champion, Kentucky, the game will have some additional intrigue for Boston College fans.

Baylor point guard Brady Heslip, who was originally committed to BC prior to the firing of Al Skinner, was not highly thought of by new coach Steve Donahue who encouraged him to transfer. Now Heslip will get the opportunity to show the Eagles what they passed on.

The other six teams in the field are: Auburn, Charleston, Colorado, Dayton, Murray State, and St. John's and play begins November 15.
