Baylor vs. Boston College: Bears look to continue impressive start

Cooper Neill

The Baylor Bears take on a Boston College team picked by many to finish last in the ACC.

The Baylor Bears look to continue their impressive start to the 2012-13 season Thursday afternoon against the Boston College Golden Eagles in Charleston, S.C., for a first-round game in the Charleston Classic.

It would seem to be a mismach on paper, as the sixteenth-ranked Bears take on an Eagles team picked by many to finish last in the ACC. Third-year coach Steve Donahue's team struggled at times in a win over Florida International on Sunday, but did get 29 points and 17 rebounds from sophomore Ryan Anderson. Boston College is a younger team, with only one senior and one junior on the roster, neither of whom start. Baylor is a 16 1/2-point favorite for Thursday's game.

Preseason Big 12 Player of the Year Pierre Jackson has been a catalyst for the Bears' first two games, both wins. Jackson scored 14 in a season-opening win over Lehigh on Friday and a game-high 25 against Jackson State on Sunday.

No. 16 Baylor and Boston College meet Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. CT in a game televised by ESPNU.
