What a difference a year makes. Heading into the winter break one year ago, the Boston University women’s hockey team held a rather melancholy 6-9-2 (3-3-0 Hockey East) record. It took eight games for the Terriers to win their first contest of the season.
It’s not often that a team has its top two scorers notch 10 points below their average, shoot a combined 22 percent and still win the game. Yet this was the case for the Boston University men’s basketball team, which managed to pull off a 55-43 victory Wednesday against Yale University at Case Gymnasium due to stingy defense of its own.
Last Wednesday, the Boston University women’s basketball team jumped out to a 33-12 lead against Brown University and never let the Bears pull within 20 for the remainder of the game.
‘Rebounding, rebounding, rebounding.’ Boston University women’s basketball coach Kelly Greenberg’s maxim rings in her players’ ears day and night. Greenberg sermonizes tough play on the glass so often, Rev. Al Sharpton thinks she preaches too much.
On the ascent after two rollercoaster weeks, the No. 6 Boston University women’s hockey team will attempt to end its first semester schedule on a positive note tonight at Walter Brown Arena against No. 9 Boston College.
