Philadelphia At Boston College: Steve Donahue Makes Conte Forum Debut As Eagles Host Rams In Exhibition Game

CHESTNUT HILL - Boston College's mens basketball team hosts the Philadelphia Rams in their only exhibition game on Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum (3 p.m. ET).

The game marks the debut of new Boston College men's basketball coach Steve Donahue, who spent the last 10 years as the head coach at Cornell and has coached in the Ivy League for 20 years.

This year's Eagles roster is led by seniors Joe Trapani, Corey Raji, Biko Paris and junior guard Reggie Jackson.

Boston College will look to improve on a lackluster 2009-10 campaign in which it went 15-16 and missed the NCAA tournament.

Donahue will look to change the culture at The Heights, which had been drained of passion in the last few seasons under outgoing head coach Al Skinner.
