BU will take the floor against Northeastern on Friday the 13th at 7PM at the Case Gym to open the season. They will do so, however, without Eric Fanning. He is suspended from the team for breaking team rules. He is currently allowed to practice with the team, but he will not be appearing in any games. Head Coach Joe Jones will have no further comment on the matter.
After transferring from Wagner College and sitting out the 2013-2014 season, Fanning appeared in all 30 games in the 2014-2015 season, and was a leading scorer for the team. He was second on the team and 13th in the conference at 12.3 points a game, and established himself as the 6th man of the team. He topped 20 points five different times, with his career high of 27 coming against BU will now be without both of their leading scorers from last season, with Cedric Hankerson also missing time with an ACL injury.
