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 […]
The Boston University Terriers (17-8-1) and Boston College Eagles (17-10-1) each advanced to next Monday’s Beanpot final, dispatching the Harvard Crimson (7-7-9) and Northeastern Huskies (11-12-3) respectively at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass.
The Beanpot college hockey tournament is a Boston institution, an annual tournament where the four biggest hockey schools in the Boston area face off. This year’s final takes place Monday night, featuring Boston College against Northeastern for the championship, while Boston University faces Harvard in the consolation game.
New Hampshire defended home ice on Friday night, rallying to tie Boston College 3-3, enough to clinch their third Hockey East regular season title in four years and eighth overall. This was the second time the Wildcats had overcome a three goal deficit to tie the Eagles in as many games this season. BC got revenge on […]
The top four in the latest USCHO.com Division I Men’s Hockey poll remained unchanged with Denver on top. The Pioneers now have 48 of 50 first place votes and Miami, in second, claims the other two. Wisconsin and St. Cloud State held onto their spots in third and fourth, respectively, but Hockey East finally cracks […]
With two weeks left in Hockey East play, nothing much is settled. This weekend did not help to provide much clarity either as three of the five pairings were splits and the lone sweep was an “upset”, further jamming the schools in the standings. New Hampshire and Boston College have separated themselves from the pack […]
BU’s sweep of Maine this weekend has the Terriers as the league’s hottest team and they have elevated to fourth place, which would mean home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs, in Hockey East. The pollsters have taken notice of BU’s recent tear, putting them back in the poll for the first […]
Boston College built a 4-1 lead and turned back BU’s two goal rally before the Terriers could tie the game to capture the school’s 15th Beanpot Tournament Championship, and second in three years. BC and BU have now split four games this season in four different venues with BC winning at BU and at the […]
BC and BU will meet in next week’s 58th Beanpot final after each advanced Monday night by beating Harvard and Northeastern respectively. The Terriers and Eagles will meet in the final for the sixth time in last seven tourneys that the feat was possible (excluding the years when BC-BU is played on the first week). […]
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. They won the Fenway Classic and took out the Eagles in Chestnut Hill in a 5-4 overtime game. Meanwhile, BC seems to […]
Boston College was two for two this weekend and remains the top rated Hockey East representative in the latest USCHO.com Division I Men’s Hockey Poll. However, at 11, the conference still lacks a Top 10 team, but, like last week, the league is dominating the bottom half of the poll. After BC at 11, UMass […]
Archrivals BC and BU took the ice at Fenway in a college hockey version of the Winter Classic last Friday night and the Teriers took the victory. The Eagles loss was their third in a row after a hot stretch before the holidays and dropped them five spots from seven to 12 in the latest […]
BC and BU have been on opposite trajectories all season as the Terriers have struggled and BC became among the hottest teams in the country. Over the last week, however, things may be beginning to change. BC lost both of their Denver Cup games, including to host and number two Denver. BU did not play […]
There is no poll this week as there was very limited action on the ice. Vermont beat Dartmouth in the only game featuring a Hockey East team, one of only three overall (and one of those was exhibition). There will not be another poll until the first week of January after teams wrap up their […]
Boston College charged to the end of the 2009 portion of the schedule with five consecutive wins, no losses in seven games (6-0-1), and only one in 10 (8-1-1). With two wins this week, over Hardvard and Providence, the Eagles are now the highest rated Hockey East team at #5, up five spots from last week. UMass-Lowell, […]
