Sigh... Time to start over.
I don't even need to say anything about the Holy Cross loss. I'll just say that it was nice to see Corey and Tyler have great performances on the same night and that I'm pissed that Tyler's game-tying heave didn't make Sportscenter's Top 10 Plays. The radio guys went absolutely nuts and I think the High Roller had an aneurysm.
This could easily be a 6-6 team. Umass, St. John's and Holy Cross are all games that might have gone the other way if not for a missed free throw there or an offensive rebound there. I'm not saying we should have won them, but it means we will be very competitive in conference play.
Which brings us to today's game against Hartford. Every time we play the Hawks, you have to immediately think of two games:
As the High Roller mentioned in his outstanding analysis of the rest of the AE, Hartford comes in with low expectations but has been surprising people. They've got a 7-6 record, and won 3 non-conference road games (they had a total of 8 in the past 9 years). They've got a stud frosh in Joe Zeglinski and BU will try to prove that their frosh are better.
Conference games starting means it's a new season. The march to a 16 seed starts today.
