The strangest BU basketball career ever

The Terriers had a fantastic night at The Greek last Tuesday - everything was working against Albany. Three-pointers were falling like whoa - a school record of 16! Johnny Holland had 21, Los had 18, JOB had 18. And Corey Lowe, despite only scoring 12 points, had another fantastic game with 5 steals, 6 assists and only 1 turnover!

The one negative coming out of the game was that we had another injury. And if I had told you at the beginning of the year that we would lose Brendan Sullivan to a separated shoulder and it would matter, I wouldn't have believed you. Actually, I would have said... Brendan Sullivan is back on the team? But this is just the latest chapter in the weirdest career of any BU athlete ever. Consider:
  • Sullivan joins the 2005-06 Terrier squad as a highly touted freshman
  • He doesn't make much of an impact, except for one an early season game against Rider in which he explodes for 15 points, all on 3-pointers.
  • He messes up somehow and Wolff suspends him for the final regular season game and the AE tourney.
  • He quits the team after the season.
  • He stays at BU and spends the next 2 years playing pick-up hoops and presumably lounging around at the GSU
  • He's announced at Terrier Tip-Off 08-09 as having rejoined the team as a walk-on, but only sees 4 mins of action all year
  • Sully again quits the team, or is not asked to return, when Chambers takes over at the beginning of 09-10
  • He is begged to return as a walk-on when it's clear we have a shortage of big men
  • Sully then gains more and more PT until finally he's averaging over 15 mins in conference play this year
  • And then, of course, Sully separates his shoulder and we're again short on big men.

We anxiously await Sully's return to the lineup.

It just goes to show you what a madman Wolff was. That same year we lose Tony Gafney, UMASS/Lakers. Corey Hassan, Sacred Heart star. Bryan Geffen, Qinnipiak starter. Ben Coblyn, UMASS football. Wolff had to get rid of all that talent so he could justify playing his son Matt. College basketball at its best
