Height galore in Bearcats front court

On Tommy Dempsey's roster, only one player, Junior Point Guard Marlon Beck, is listed under 6'0". With Dusan Perovic and Thomas Bruce both listed at 6'9"; Willie Rodriguez, John Schurman, Romello Walker, and Bobby Ahearn at 6'6"; and Justin McFadden at 6'5" there are plenty of options for Dempsey to stack the front court and play big.

"I think we're going to have one of the deeper front lines in the conference," Dempsey said. "With Dusan being back, all the experience Bobby gained last year, the addition of Thomas Bruce who has had a very good preseason and Willie. So, I just think that's been a strength. We've talked more about playing Willie at small forward so we can get multiple big guys in at the same time. That's been our strength through our practice."

BU begins the season Friday with an exhibition at home against SUNY Cobleskill at 8:00.
