VIDEO: Boston College walk-on Perpiglia given a scholarship


Tuesday afternoon Boston College picked up its third consecutive win of the season, as they beat Fordham 64-55 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The game represented one of the best defensive performance of the season for Jim Christian’s team, as they limited the Rams to 32.1 percent shooting from the field (31.3 percent from two) and forced Fordham 14 turnovers.

And after congratulating his team on their performance Christian took a minute to reward a hard-working senior walk-on. Steve Perpiglia, who’s played in 29 games at Boston College, was given the Christmas gift of a scholarship for his final semester. Of course the reaction of his teammates is great, but so are the reactions of his family and friends after Perpiglia’s head coach gave them the good news.
