Al Skinner can't remember ever coaching a team without any newcomers.
But that's what he'll do this season at Boston College.

His Eagles have no incoming freshmen, no transfers—not even a red-shirt joining the roster. Skinner will coach the same team he coached last season -- minus second-team All-ACC guard Tyrese Rice.
