And then there was one. Syracuse, one of the nation's two remaining unbeatens, dropped its first game of the season on Wednesday night, falling to Boston College, 62-59. With the Orange losing, Wichita State is the last unbeaten team left in college basketball. This was a shocker. Boston College was one of the biggest disappointments in college basketball, and head coach Steve Donahue has one of the hotter seats in the ACC. The Eagles had beaten just one Division-I team since November, and had the fewest wins of any major-conference team. But Olivier Hanlan played like the preseason all-conference player he was, scoring 20 points and hitting several big shots late in the game. Lonnie Jackson was huge, hitting four free throws in the final 30 seconds. Syracuse really struggled from the perimeter, and the Eagles simply knocked down shots over the zone.
