BC Basketball: Boston College basketball brings good offense, suspect defense to Syracuse rematch

A fair look at the Boston College-Syracuse game tonight from the local Syracuse media.

BC Hockey: Tanner MacMaster commits to Quinnipiac ice hockey

A rare decommit for Jerry York as Albertan Tanner MacMaster heads to Quinnipiac instead. There’s no need to pile on the kid and we do wish him well, but in terms of figuring out what it means, don’t wear yourself out.

In the long run, York gets very good recruits, anyway, so this probably won’t make much of a difference.

BC Hockey/Baseball: Boyles, Shaw Named Eagles of the Week
