From the FreeP: Bird is the word: Terriers prepare for Hawks

By Shep Hayes/DFP Staff

Fresh off its first win against Boston College since 1974 and finally out of the hole dug with a season-opening four game losing streak, the Boston University men’s basketball team will begin what is arguably the toughest stretch on its 2011-12 schedule. The Terriers (4-4) will make two trips to Philadelphia in the next week, sandwiched around a home game against a ranked opponent in Harvard University at Agganis Arena.

The challenge begins Wednesday evening, as the Terriers make their first trip to Pennsylvania, this time to play the Saint Joseph’s University Hawks. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Michael J. Hagan Center.

Speaking in the lobby of the Walter Brown Arena on Tuesday, senior forward Patrick Hazel was still impressed with the team’s 75-61 win over BC on Saturday afternoon.

“It was huge,” Hazel said. “You don’t like to make a big deal about things like that, but it really does mean a lot to our university.

“I was telling my teammates when I went to class, I was surprised because my classmates were clapping for me, cheering for me.”
