From the FreeP: M. basketball to face Northeastern in season opener

By Luke Coughlan/DFP Staff

Following an offseason that saw the replacement of nine graduating seniors with four transfer students and seven incoming freshmen, a rebuilding of team chemistry and a preseason scrimmage to prepare in front of a live crowd, the Boston University men's basketball team is finished getting their feet wet. When it takes on Northeastern University Friday night at Matthews Arena in their regular-season opener, it will be diving headfirst into the deep end.

The game will feature the long-anticipated debut of junior forward Patrick Hazel and junior guards Matt Griffin and Darryl Partin, all of whom had been waiting patiently to play from the bench last year because of NCAA transferring rules.
