One of the most-decorated players in the ACC and Boston College history is headed to the NBA. Following three seasons with Boston College, Ky Bowman has declared for the 2019 NBA, which comes as little surprise.

The 6-foot-1 Bowman tested the NBA Draft process in 2018, too; this, however, is different. The three-year starter at point guard won’t return to BC. Bowman will sign with an agent.

A dynamic pick-and-roll creator, Bowman played in 98 games with 94 starts. Over his career, Bowman scored 1,661 points — good for 16.9 per game. As a junior in 2018-19, Bowman led the ACC in minutes per game (39.4) and ranked fourth in scoring (19 points per game). He also averaged 7.5 rebounds and four assists per game (23 percent assist rate), too.
Without Jerome Robinson, Boston College’s offense revolved around the former 3-star recruit, who initially committed to play football at North Carolina. Facing constant double teams, Bowman saw his efficiency drop this season: 103.8 offensive rating (48.6 eFG%).
This decision was predictable, but it certainly will certainly make things more of a challenge for Jim Christian and BC next season.
Bowman likely grades out as a late-second round pick.
