The Boston College Eagles have recently been selected to host the East Regional portion of the 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. BC director of athletics Gene DeFilippo is thrilled for the events to return to Boston. The games are scheduled for March 22-24 at the TD Banknorth Garden.
“This decision is a tribute to the outstanding cooperation Boston College has received from Mayor Menino’s office, the city of Boston, the TD Garden, the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau and the local business community,” said Filippo. “We are grateful for their support and excited to have this opportunity once again.”
The home of the Boston Celtics previously served as the playing grounds for the 1999 and 2003 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball regional first and second rounds, the 2009 Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight, and the Women’s Final Four.

On January 8th (one week after the NHL Winter Classic at Fenway), Hockey East teams will be showcasing their skills outdoors for two games at 4:00 pm and 7:30 pm. Organizers have recently decided to keep the frozen trend alive in college hockey, changing the name from Hockey East at Fenway to Frozen Fenway. Sun Life Financial has just been announced as the official sponsor.
The first game of the double header will feature the best of women’s college hockey with Northeastern University squaring off against UNH. This will surely set the stage for the premier game between the Boston University Terriers and Boston College Eagles men’s programs.
The men’s game will mark the 248th contest between the two teams. The Eagles are defending Beanpot champions from 2008, and the Terriers from 2009. There is always a lot on the line when the two programs play each other. Pride is the most important factor heading into the event for these cross-town rivals.

North Carolina seniors Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green became the first teammates to attain a perfect 4-0 record against Coach K on his own court. After the game they walked off with four fingers held high in the air, representing their perfect win streak at the Cameron Indoor at Duke.
Ty Lawson led the #3 ranked Tar Heels to beat the Duke Blue Devils (#5) 101-87, scoring 21 out of his season-high 25 points in the second half. Tyler Hansbrough scored 17 points as they put a stop to Duke’s 14-game win streak at home. This performance put Hansbrough at second on the all-time ACC scoring list with 2,604 points.
Duke was leading at the half 52-44, but UNC pulled away late in the game with a 14-0 run. UNC coach Roy Williams told his boys “the streak is going to stop at some time; lets? just put it off for another year.” The Tar Heels responded and for that they are now in first place in the ACC. These powerhouse rivals are set to square off again March 8th at UNC. Both Duke and North Carolina will be seen as favorites in the upcoming NCAA tournament.
