Boston College Morning Links: March 7


Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

As the snow falls in Chestnut Hill, it is a relatively quiet day in Boston College sports. Before basketball and hockey end their regular seasons this upcoming weekend and we have two conference tournaments to break down, this is an opportune time to catch up with other Eagles sports.

The BC men’s basketball team is not the only one improving these days. From the ladies’ side, Tessah Holt is emerging, and the Boston Herald did a feature on her this morning. Pictured above is her head coach, Erik Johnson.

Speaking of men’s basketball, we are not the only ones who feel that our own Quebecois crusher, Olivier Hanlan, should be the ACC Rookie of the Year.

The BC softball team was supposed to play Central Florida yesterday, but there were travel difficulties and the game was eventually cancelled. A bit bizarre, but sometimes, the team bus just isn’t going to cooperate.

BC baseball got to play another directional Florida school, South Florida, and split their series. Warning: this article from the USF student newspaper refers to Boston College as the “Golden Eagles;” try to shield your eyes from this grievous error.

Next up for the Eagles’ “Birdball” team is a series against Florida State which will be anything but easy. BC opens the ACC schedule with this three-game slate, which will be played from Friday to Sunday. Friday and Sunday’s games will be televised on ESPN3.

Our women’s lacrosse team — our only lacrosse team, as many are quick to point out these days — took a trip out to Northwestern and lost. The Eagles were never really in the game and lost, 17-10.
