Happy Monday! The countdown is on to the bowl that I will only refer to as the Independence Bowl. Given what's been going on with the shootyhoops team, it's safe to say there's not much else to look forward to between now and then, aside from the hockey team's tournament in Pittsburgh on December 28 and 29. Some links to dull the boredom:
The Arizona Wildcats will face the Boston College Eagles in the 2013 Advocare V100 Bowl, featuring the nation's top-two running backs in Ka'Deem Carey and Andre Williams.
The Arizona Wildcats are heading to Shreveport, La., for the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. The UA will matchup with Boston College on Dec. 31. The game will be televised on ESPN at 10:30 a.m., Tucson time. UA coach Rich Rodriguez and select players will meet with reporters tonight after the the team's banquet to discuss the matchup.
But NIU's Jordan Lynch, Alabama's AJ McCarron, Boston College's Andre Williams and Ohio State's Braxton Miller could sway some voters.
Senior Kristen Doherty and classmate Katie Zenevitch each recorded 13 points and three other Eagles scored in double digits to lead the Boston College women's basketball team past Hartford, 65-45, on Sunday afternoon in Conte Forum.
USCHO's recap of the Eagles' win at the Whittemore Center.
No. 5 Harvard and No. 6 Boston College were also unable to decide anything in a single-game tilt, skating to a 1-1 tie. It looked like the Eagles would be unable to solve Emerance Maschmeyer, and Miye D'Oench's early goal would prove decisive. However, Katie King Crowley went to her bag of tricks early, and just after the Crimson rang their second pipe of the third period, she sent out an extra attacker earlier than usual, and 25 seconds later, Emily Pfalzer beat Maschmeyer with 87 seconds remaining in regulation.
