Basketball: ACC Tournament Round 1 Recap - From The Rumble Seat

What a barn burner. After the first 6 minutes, the teams had a field goal a piece, along with 2 FT's for Boston College. After the two interruptions, one for a clock malfuction and one for the lights going out, both teams started to gain a bit of momentum going into the half. After leading by double digits for a while, Tech got sloppy and let Boston College back into the game over the last 5 minutes of the game. With 2 minutes left in the game, Boston College was on an 11-0 run, with Tech only up by 1 point.

Defenseman Patrick Wey was 16 when he left home in Mt. Lebanon to move to Waterloo, Iowa, and play in the junior United States Hockey League. That doesn't mean he thinks all Western Pennsylvania hockey players need to go away to develop into NHL talent. "It worked for me," Wey, 22, said Tuesday after being called up from Hershey of the American Hockey League by the Washington Capitals. "I know the hockey community is definitely growing here," he said. "It was just a personal decision for me to go to play in the USHL. There are plenty of ways to get where you want to go. This is the route I took."
