Afternoon Quickie: 3 BC Teams Return; 3 Losses


Boston College fans were very patient for the return of the #3 hockey team after 20 days in between games. Your patience was rewarded with a 4-2 loss at the hands of Michigan. On a positive note, Patrick Wey returned to the ice for BC.

It is difficult to comment on a game which one did not see, but it is probably not unreasonable to assume that the Bill Arnold-less Eagles got outplayed and have to get their act back together.

They can attempt to do so this afternoon against Michigan Tech. The game will take place at 4pm and will not be televised.

It’s a familiar story these days: BC schedules Harvard, BC plays Harvard, BC loses to Harvard. The Crimson won their fourth-straight game against the Eagles on Thursday night, 67-46. Indications are that the game was competitive for a while, but the wheels came off late and a blowout was created.

What’s particularly disturbing is that the Eagles scored three points in the last eight and a half minutes of the game and that Matt Humphrey appeared to have reverted to his usual frustrating self after a good Sacred Heart game.

Boston College is now 5-8 and has one more non-conference game against a very bad Rhode Island team before being pushed out in front of the proverbial train in Chapel Hill.

Women’s basketball didn’t fare any better than the men. They lost last night to St. Joe’s, 74-57, despite a double-double from Katie Zenevitch.

Here’s a disgusting stat: the two BC basketball teams last night committed 32 combined turnovers (15 women, 17 men).
