Overall Rank: #108
Next up for Jon Teitel in his interview series is Boston College's all-time leading scorer, Troy Bell. Bell, who won two Big East Player of the Year awards and also led the Eagles to the 2001 Big East regular season and tournament titles, the only time the Eagles did that as a member of the league. After a pro career that included stops in the NBA, NBDL and Europe, Bell has now taken up the sweet science (boxing). And if his hand speed is as explosive as his scoring ability, look out.
We'll track coaching changes as they occur. If there's any missing on here, or if you have contract info to add (including salaries), please mention it in the comments section.

All three players will begin play during the 2010-11 season.
Ranking players is more art then science. How do you compare the potential of freshmen with seniors who have already peaked? How much does physical talent come into play versus intangibles and experience? How big a role do numbers play?
