ACC Program Histories: Boston College Eagles

As we write about various colleges in the nation at Swish Appeal, we like to take a quick glance at what a program has done over the last 4-5 years: their record, where they finished in the conference, what postseason tournament they made, etc. Of course, most of that information is available in media guides if you poke around a college's site long enough. But it would also be nice to have that information easily organized into a table that you could easily scan to see trends, peaks, and valleys. So in all of our spare time, we're going to take on that project this season for some of the nation's major programs - starting to look back at program histories as we continue to survey the landscape of today. First up is the ACC, starting with Boston College.

A # is used in the Standing column to indicate seasons where the team won the conference tournament. As you can see, the Eagles have never won a conference tournament.

Margo Plotzke was the first full-time women's basketball coach at Boston College. She resigned to become an assistant to the athletic director.

Cathy Inglese arrived from the University of Vermont in 1993 after coaching there for seven seasons and coached Boston College to its first NCAA appearance in 1999. She resigned from Boston College in 2008 and took over as head coach at Rhode Island in the Atlantic 10 after a year. Interesting factoid: she actually tried out for a couple of WBL teams - the Dallas Diamonds and the New Jersey Gems - after graduating from Southern Connecticut in 1980.
