The Eagles also advanced to the ACC Tournament Second Round after defeating Georgia Tech, 62-57, last March.

Boston College returns leading scorer and leading rebounder Dontavia Waggoner in 2023-24. The rising senior averaged 13.2 points per game and 7.3 rebounds per game last season. Waggoner also led Boston College with 70 steals.
