Last season we were really impressed with BC’s Wynston Tabbs and were really sorry that he never really got back for the Eagles because he could have been a real key for them.
When he was healthy, Tabbs really was a solid player. The freshman averaged nearly 14 ppg which is damn good.
Unfortunately for Jim Christian and Boston College, he’ll have to miss all of the upcoming season after having knee surgery. We’re not entirely sure but we think this is the same injury he dealt with last season and apparently the BC doctors decided it’s best to just fix it and come back later.
It’s a tough break for BC and most of all Christian. He’s shown signs of being a good coach and he’s certainly shown a knack for finding underappreciated talent.
He inherited a tough situation and is just 62-100 overall at the ACC school. He was on the right path two years ago and finished 19-16, then fell back to 14-17 last year, partly because Tabbs missed so much time.
If he’s on the hot seat - and we have indication he is and hope that he’s not because he seems like a good man in a tough spot - Tabbs may unintentionally cost him his job.
For his part, Tabbs has a great attitude, saying this: “While I won’t be able to play this season, I know that it is a temporary setback and I will be back stronger than ever before. I want to thank my family, the Boston College Basketball program, and all our fans for their continued support. I’ve overcome obstacles before in my life and will work tirelessly to overcome this one. I am built for this.”
Gotta love it.
