Big Purple Growl = Dumb Name

BU picked the worst possible time to roll into Albany for their "Big Purple Growl." They're coming off their first wide-margin loss of the conference season, a 9-point shellacking at the hands of UNH (boy that's weird to type). BU had no answer for Blagoj Janev, a man who claims he is from Australia but one look at that name would prove otherwise - perhaps he meant Austria. He's normally a big boy underneath, but stepped out to the three-point line against BU and proceeded to hit 6 threes against us.

Thanks to some other weird developments in the America East, we're miraculously still tied for third in the standings with a 5-5 record -- 2 games behind Binghamton and 3 games behind tonight's foe Albany. Albany has been the only fairly consistent team in the conference. We lost by 6 last time at the Roof, but it was a close game. Sitting the conference driver's seat, Albany is feeling pretty confident. BU needs a big lift after their disappointing loss.

A win tonight is huge. Let's get it done.

Blagoj was born in Serbia, but then moved to australia. he is big, but he is really a jump shooter and 3 point shooter, his inside game is somewhat lacking. He also specializes in being the dirtiest player in the conference, as well as beating on smaller students than himself and his girlfriend...
