■ Coach: Jim Christian (fourth season, 29-67).
■ 2016-17 record: 9-23 (2-16 ACC).
■ Probable starters: G Jerome Robinson (18.7 ppg), G Ky Bowman (17.4 ppg), G Jordan Chatman (8.6 ppg), F Deontae Hawkins (14.0 ppg), F Steffon Mitchell (NA).
■ Key reserves: F Nik Popovic (6.1 ppg), G Avery Wilson (NA).
■ Outlook: The Eagles haven’t finished above .500 since 2011, but with the returning backcourt duo of Robinson and Bowman, expectations for improvement are high. Graduate transfer Hawkins led a 28-win Illinois State team in scoring last season. Freshmen Mitchell and Wilson will need to play key roles if BC is to be competitive in a deep ACC.
