Rest, relaxation and a bit of chicken noodle soup are what most of the No. 20 Boston University men’s hockey team could use this weekend.
With 17:41 left to play in last night’s game at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, the Boston University women’s basketball team seemed set for an easy victory. The Terriers had momentum on their side when a 3-pointer by freshman guard Mo Moran capped a 15-3 run and put the team up, 41-18. The tally in the win column was all but written in ink.
They are dedicated to the game of hockey, making weekly trips off campus just to practice, and they compete regularly against nationally ranked rivals like Boston College, Northeastern University and the University of Connecticut. In fact, they often defeat high-powered club teams who receive funding from their schools for transportation, coaching and other costs.
The last time the Boston University women’s basketball team faced off against the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, the Terriers came away with their most disappointing loss of the season &- a 65-63 heartbreaker at home. Tonight at 7 p.m., BU will travel to Maryland looking for a much better result.
Since being named head coach of the Boston University women’s basketball team on July 7, 2004, Kelly Greenberg has effectively taken a blowtorch to the school’s record book. Greenberg took home the 2008-09 America East Coach of the Year award after going a perfect 16-0 in conference play and streaking from just after Christmas until St. Patrick’s Day without losing a game.
