Robinson and Bowman ranked second and fifth in the ACC in scoring, respectively. Robinson averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game, while shooting 48.5 percent from the floor and 40.9 percent from behind the 3-point line. Bowman tallied 17.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game, while shooting 42.2 percent from the floor and 36.2 percent from three.
The duo led Boston College to a 19-16 season, including a quarterfinal appearance in the ACC Tournament. It was the program’s highest win total since the 2010-11 season.
April 22 is the deadline for early entry candidates to submit their application for the draft. The application allows players to work out for NBA teams beginning April 24 and attend the NBA combine, if invited, and receive feedback on their potential draft status. A player must remove his name from the draft by June 11 in order to maintain his college eligibility.
