    That'll be the closest ACC trip for SU, and it's nice to see a local rival again. I'm a current SU student who lives in the Boston area--been to Conte Forum many times, that game is the same day as the first day of classes, but we'll see if I can head back to CNY a day late. How many are planning to be at Chestnut Hill?

    BC actually has a rising young squad. Olivier Hanlan won ACC rookie of the year and put up 41 against Wake Forest in the first round of the ACC tournament. Ryan Anderson was their leading scorer as a sophomore--good young squad--Donahue has done a good job bringing in talent since he became HC.

    I spent 3 years at BC after SU and that arena will have more SU fans than BC fans unless BC is doing unbelievable well. BC hockey is the biggest sport on campus and while BC basketball has young talent I would expect SU to beat them twice. This game is on Big Monday ESPNU at 9pm which sucks for us East Coasters, but I am sure Western alums won't mind.

    I think BC is going to be a pretty good team this year. They were starting to come on late in the season with a really young team. They're going to upset a few teams this year and fight for a tourney bid, let's just hope we aren't a victim.

    It's too bad we are stuck playing the 3rd best D1 program in Mass next year. Playing Harvard or UMass would be better for our RPI.

    looks like BC is making you buy package deals to see Duke or Syracuse, and I could be wrong but looks like you have to buy 5 games

    Right now the same thing with combo tickets at Wake Forest. Don't know if there will be decent singles left.
    I hope AirForceOrange can come through for us at Florida State.

    I know, but 5 games? Providence would do 3 and that was reasonable, plus the last few years you could basically pick any of the other games for the two. BC is making you pick two games and two "good" games.

    Not saying its reasonable, but then I'm not a fan of a third rate program like bc.

    I guess this just shows how bad it has been at BC if they have to get other teams fans to buy 5 game packages

    I'm going to be getting two tickets to this game for Christmas and the person I was going to go with just backed out today.Figured I'd at least try to get a couple of extra cuse fans in the door before I put them on ebay/stub hub.There in one of the middle upper sections(mm) towards the back(row is low 30's). Just send me your email address if interested and I'll get back to you with more specific details.

    First game of spring semester has been significant the last two years - not in a good way. Let's hope it passes quietly this time.
