BREAKING NEWS: Carlos Strong starts over John Holland

For this first time all season, BU coach Dennis Wolff went with a different starting lineup against Cornell, giving junior guard Carlos Strong the start over sophomore forward and reigning America East Rookie of the Year John Holland. Holland entered the game with 17:35 remaining in the first half. Still, odd that Wolff chose this as the first time all season to change his starting five. We're not sure what the reason for the switch was, but as soon as we find out, we'll let you know.

Also, related to breaking news from before the Delaware game, Jeff Pelage dressed for the Cornell game and is seeing significant minutes for the third time this season.

Also (again), on an unrelated note. For those of you wondering why there was no live blog, it's only for games we attend live. We figured it'd be silly for us to live blog after listening to the game on the radio or watching online. Sadly, there won't be a live blog for BU's next game against Holy Cross (1/02/09) but we'll be back in full force for the start of conference play when BU travels to Albany.
EDIT (12/30/08): There will be a live blog for the Holy Cross game. Free Press columnist Brian Fadem will cover the game courtside starting at 6:30 p.m.
