BC basketball hampered by rough schedule

In hindsight, Steve Donahue acknowledges that maybe it wasn’t such a good idea for the Boston College men’s basketball team to take on such an ambitious nonconference schedule.

Maybe it wasn’t the right time for BC to play five nonleague games away from home, resulting in losses to Providence of the Big East (in overtime), to Purdue in an ACC/Big Ten Challenge contest, to Southern Cal of the Pac-12, to Auburn of the Southeastern Conference, and to Harvard, the reigning Ivy League champion.
