From the FreeP: Men’s basketball experiences plethora of changes during 2011-12 campaign

By Craig Meyer and Shep Hayes/DFP Staff

If anything and above all else, the 2011-12 season was one of change for the Boston University men’s basketball program.

For a program that did not experience a coaching change for 15 years, the Terriers adjusted to their third head coach in four years as Joe Jones took over the program from Patrick Chambers, who unexpectedly left in June to become the new head coach at Penn State University.

Gone was leading scorer and 2011 America East Conference Player of the Year John Holland, the player who single-handedly willed the Terriers to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2002.

It was expected to be a challenging season for BU, even though it was not-so-surprisingly selected as the preseason pick to win the America East Conference for the fifth season in a row.
