Boston College is set for their home finale today at 2pm against Notre Dame. The big news heading into this game has been the transfers of Rich Kelly and Wynston Tabbs and the firing of head coach Jim Christian. The two teams faced off earlier this year in South Bend, a game that Notre Dame won 80-70. How will the team react to new interim coach Scott Spinelli? We shall see.
Time: 2:00 pm
Where: Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill
Radio: WEEI 850
Opening Line: Notre Dame (-7.5)

CJ Felder is out today, Fred Scott returns to the lineup. Don't read too much into the two walk ons starting, most schools do that for senior day, and then pull them quickly.
Demarr Langford hits both free throws to ice the game. Boston College wins Scott Spinelli is 1-0 as head coach.
Notre Dame has their chances, but Steff Mitchell comes up with the big rebound. Jay Heath misses both free throws.
Jay Heath with a big three pointer 86-80 1:44 remaining
6-0 run by Wake Forest and the lead is down to six. Timeout Boston College 74-68.
72-62 Boston College leads.
Fred Scott with a three, and the lead is up to 10. 57-47
Notre Dame making a little run here, Wertz lays it up and draws the foul from Langford 53-47 BC
If you wanted to see the Makai Ashton Langford to Demarr Langford dunk
What a half by BC, who looks like a completely different team. Leads 42-35 lead over Notre Dame at the half. Scott, Ashton Langford, and D. Langford all have 8 points to lead the Eagles. Great ball movement, energy, finding lanes, great play so far for the Eagles who are shooting 44.4% from the field.
Notre Dame on a 7-0 run themselves, have cut the lead 33-28.
33-21, 7:31 left in the first. Fred Scott 7 points, Makai Ashton Langford 8 points.
Fred Scott is definitely a valuable player, having a heck of a game out there after missing most of the season. Hopefully he sticks around for another season.
Definitely a different energy today by this team, look quicker, attacking. Playing for Spinelli it appears.
BC looking really good, Karnik drives the hoop, gets the bucket and the foul 13-5 Boston College.
Sam Holtze gets his first bucket of the year. BC is up 5-3
