The Boston College Eagles played host to the Harvard Crimson on Wednesday night, but could not stop their opponents from across the Charles River as Harvard went on to win 79-63 inside the Conte Forum. The game see-sawed in the first half for the first twelve minutes or so, with BC making its first six […]

Vermont Proves Too Much to Handle For Crimson

In a fast-paced game that featured four ties in the first three minutes, the Vermont Catamounts held off the Harvard Crimson in an 85-78 shootout. Tommy Amaker’s squad struggled at the free throw line all night, and the lack of discipline seemed rolled over into their defensive strategies as well. To their credit, the Crimson […]

Boston vs. Goliath – The Current State of College Basketball in Boston

More so than any other sport, college basketball is a sport of perennial powerhouses. Establishing an institution to be synonymous with a sport itself takes years, and only a select few have been able to earn the right within the basketball community including Duke, Indiana, UConn, North Carolina and Kansas. In arguably the greatest sports […]

Poll of the Week: Who Do You Like in the Beanpot?

The Beanpot college hockey tournament is a Boston institution, an annual tournament where the four biggest hockey schools in the Boston area face off.

Harvard Gets 21 Second-Half Points, Beats Yale

The word “rivalry” calls up powerful images in the minds of people from the Northeast. On the ice, one might think of cross-border battles so loud and ferocious that they threaten to become international incidents. On the gridiron, perhaps you’d imagine million-dollar superstars trading bombs, each trying to cement his legacy as the premier quarterback […]

BU Drops BC as Beanpot Looms

The seasons of the Terriers and Eagles are on opposite trajectories now. BU had a very tough start, but is rebounding lately and has now beaten their arch-rival in the last two meetings.

Lin, Wright Lead Second Half Comeback to Upset Eagles

Play with fire enough and you will eventually get burned. Consider the Eagles torched. Boston College, for the fourth consecutive game, played a sloppy, lifeless second half. Unfortunately for the “Super Fans” in Silvio O. Conte Forum, the Eagles did not have a double-digit cushion to make up for its lack of play resulting in […]

Pesky Crimson Come From Behind to Surprise Terriers

A lack of depth has haunted Boston University all season, and this game’s outcome proved no different. Scott Brittain, B.J. Bailey, and Valdas Sirutis were inactive for the game against the Crimson. The upbeat, high scoring game proved costly for the lack of Terrier depth, as Harvard came out on top 78–70 on Sunday. Entering […]

Quakers Wash Out Crimson

Harvard and Penn squared off Saturday at Harvard Stadium amidst wind, rain, and cold.

BU cruised the Saturday game, however. The Terriers captured 44 of the 50 […]
