Senior Day is a special occasion, a chance for the fans celebrate the careers of your outgoing players one last time. And while preseason America East favorite Boston University hasn't had much to crow about this season (they're 10-15, 7-7), the senior forward pictured to the left had the game of his life (and yesterday's best performance in mid-majordom) against lowly Stony Brook. His 27 points were a career high.
Gardner is a big guy who's always shot well (he ranks 10th on BU's all-time list with a 51.7% FG mark); his time at The Roof started with a few minutes here and there in his 2002-03 freshman year, a little more action as a sophomore, and he started every game (7.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg) for the 20-win Terrier team last year, one that came up short in the AE quarters. This year, he's been averaging a team-high 13.4 points a game for a not-so-good team. There are thousands of players in mid-majordom who have solid and unheralded careers, and Gardner is one of them.
