March 14, 2013: Olivier Hanlan breaks records at ACC Tournament
Just winning an ACC Tournament game would be an accomplishment for this growing basketball team, but they did it in style with a double-digit win. That, however, was not the big story.
Olivier Hanlan scored 41 points in BC’s first-round win over Georgia Tech, breaking the points record for a freshman in a single tournament game; he was also the first player to score as much in an ACC Tournament game in 40 years. Many people learned his name that day, and it was then that he officially put the college basketball world on notice (though, in reality, Hanlan had many good games during the regular season).
Soon thereafter, he got his due for a great freshman season by being named ACC Rookie of the Year.
