James Johnson (basketball)


Boston College

Coach: : Al Skinner, 12th season at school (210-137), 20th overall (348-263)

2007-08 record: : 14-17, 4-12 (tied for 10th in ACC)

Outlook: : Senior guard Tyrese Rice averaged 21 points last season, but as last year proved, he will need help. It should come from a sophomore class led by forward Rakim Sanders (11.3) and wing Corey Raji (8.3) as well as Vermont transfer Joe Trapani and guard Biko Paris. Where the Eagles might be hurting is inside because Josh Southern is not a shot blocker (less than one per game) in the mold of Joseph Blair, who led the ACC in blocked shots last season.


Coach:: Oliver Purnell, sixth season at school...
