Great win; BU prediction
Lots to write about in a short time here as my internet was out this morning and now I have to be showered and leave for work in 30 minutes. Still, I'll do the best I can.
First off, GREAT win for the hoops team last night. In case you're out of the TV coverage area and didn't catch it as ESPN's #1 highlight of the day, Sean Marshall drained a buzzer-beating 3 to break a tie and win the game 84-81 for BC. The team struggled through long stretches of the game, including Marshall picking up his 4th foul very early in the second half, but they persevered and showed lots of heart in winning the game.
Second, BU comes to Chestnut Hill tonight for the replay of the "fog game". BC-BU games are nearly always hard-fought and exciting, and I expect this to be no different. BC is struggling right now but a pair of games against the hated Terriers (BC heads to Agganis Arena on Friday night) followed by what should be a fairly easy win over an awful Lowell team at home on Saturday night could be exactly what this team needs to get rolling. Let's hope so, anyway. Prediction for tonight?? BC 2, BU 1 (OT)
Finally, some football news. First, the team added 2-star OT/DE Anthony Castonzo, out of Fork Union, VA, yesterday. Second, Auburn's assistant strength and conditioning coach Jason Loscalzo will replace YogaBoy as BC's main S&C man. Finally, BC's 2007 football schedule has been released. I have some thoughts on it but don't have time to get them up now, will do so in the near future.
Heading off for work then Roggie's to pregame tonight's showdown--GO EAGLES!!
