PROVIDENCE - After nine years of pain and frustration, this is the season Providence College basketball resurfaces on the national scene. That's the plan, anyway.
"We have to go on the road and play with great energy," Addazio said. "I think we've got to be a physical team and we have to execute at a high level so we can move the chains. That's what we need to do, and we haven't done that yet. From a trip standpoint, this might be one of the tougher trips and we have to manage all that well."
For two straight weeks, the ACC has found itself No. 4, behind the SEC, Pac-12 and now the Big 12. Though these conference Power Rankings do not factor into the BCS standings, they are pretty telling when you look at the race to the national championship game.
Ten former Eagles are active on NFL rosters. See how they fared in week nine.
Senior Kasim Edebali (football) and junior Liv Westphal (cross country) have been named Eagles of the Week for their performances last week.
In this week's poll, the BC men stay in 8th; the BC women move up to 5th
If the Edmonton Oilers and the New York Rangers are talking trade, it's unlikely the Broadway Blueshirts would surrender left-winger Chris Kreider unless Nail Yakupov is in play.
A source close to the Rangers said the six-foot-three, 230-pound Kreider, a playoff star out of Boston College in 2012 but a disappointment last season under John Tortorella, might be the best Rangers forward right now. He's exactly what the Oilers need - a huge winger who can really skate - but Kreider, 22, is everything the Rangers need, too. They don't have a big team, especially with Rick Nash still out with a concussion.
1. Boston - Picking Boston is purely a matter of practicality. The 2015 Frozen Four will be only 16 months from the time the site is selected, so it should probably be in a place that's hosted the event relatively frequently. Boston and St. Paul are the two most qualified in that regard. St. Paul last hosted the event in 2011. Boston last hosted in 2004. That time difference is the only thing distinguishing Boston from St. Paul.
