From the FreeP: M. bball one game away from NCAA tournament

By Luke Coughlan/DFP Staff

The Boston University men’s basketball team is not going to crack.

All season long, BU coach Patrick Chambers and his squad have been preaching the benefits of taking it one game at a time, getting better with each test and treating each contest like every other.

It should come as no surprise that less than 72 hours removed from the America East Conference championship game against Stony Brook University to be held at noon on Saturday at Agganis Arena, Chambers and his resilient group are as calm, cool and collected as Arthur Fonzarelli when he hit the juke box or Cool Hand Luke when he shook the world.

“It’s the championship game,” said junior forward and tri-captain Patrick Hazel. “It’s huge. But we can’t fall asleep on anybody. We have to come in with the same mindset that we’ve had the entire year. It’s the championship game. Everything is on the line, but we just look at it as another regular season game.”
