As a collegian, Bell was a 2-time Big East Player-of-the-Year, 2-time Concensus Second Team All-American and 3-time First Team All-Big East (per Athletic Communications, Boston College):
A two-time consensus All-American in 2001 and 2003, (Troy) Bell finished his four-year career at Boston College as the program's all-time leading scorer, with 2,632 points. During that span, from 1999-2003, Bell was the top scorer in all of college basketball, at 21.6 points per game.
The Big East Rookie of the Year in 1999-2000, Bell was also one of only six players to earn Big East Player of the Year honors twice. The Minneapolis, Minn. native was the league's top player as a sophomore in 2000-01 and senior in 2002-03 and was a three-time First Team All-Big East selection from 2000-03.

Bell has left the world of basketball for a career as a music producer. We wish him the quantity and quality of production we witnessed watching him on the hardwood. The BC-Vs.-Virginia Tech game starts at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, January 25, and I will be there with my wife, Linda, and my great grandson, Carson Thomas Lane due to the graciousness of Boston College Sports Properties' Michael Winn and the BC Eagles. We look forward to it.
