#15 Seed: The 2004/05 Boston College Eagles won their first 20 games, and ultimately took the Big East regular season crown in the process.  BC did most everything well, the one exception being their 3 point range, or lack thereof.  A propensity to share the ball (assists) help drive the Eagles to a glorious 25-5 season.  Boston College was bracketed against Bruce Pearl's Wisconsin Green Bay, a 12 seed that earned the right to wear the Cinderella monikor that day.  UWGB upset BC's 4th seeded Eagles in a hard fought, trash talking Round-of-32 foul fest.  Coach Al Skinner led his program to the ACC tourney final in 05/06 followup season.  The Eagles finished as runner-up in their first Atlantic Coast campaign, after their then-high profile Big East-to-ACC conference transfer.
