The Boston University women’s basketball team wrapped up a three-game swing against Ivy League opponents by losing to Yale University, 61-57, last night in New Haven, Conn.
While the rest of Boston University’s student body will be resting over an almost month-long winter break, the men’s basketball team will be putting in plenty of work against tough opponents during those same weeks.
Boston University men’s hockey coach Jack Parker ran through the short list of Terriers who have not let him down in 2009-10. The role call only included senior Eric Gryba, junior Joe Pereira, sophomore Ross Gaudet and the entire freshman class.
The best men’s college basketball teams in the country this year require no introduction. Syracuse makes life miserable for opponents with its trademark 2-3 zone. Kansas’ dynamic post player, Cole Aldrich, is a rare breed, exceptional at both rebounding and shot-blocking and a force of nature on offense.
On Friday night at Agganis Arena, 21-year-old men’s hockey senior Eric Gryba scored his third collegiate goal. A little more than four minutes into the second period, sophomore forward Corey Trivino led a rush up the right side and into the zone before passing to sophomore forward Vinny Saponari at the left faceoff dot.
