It looked like Jim Christian had a clear plan for 2015, but then Antoine Mason became available. BC will get the 5th year's final visit next week and his decision can drastically change BC's outlook for next season. I thought next year would be the Hanlan show: with BC's dynamic combo guard handling the ball and being its main scorer. Even when Donahue was here, I advocated an offense...
