College Basketball coming to TD Garden in 2013

By Christopher Dela Rosa/DFP Staff

Entering the 2013-14 season, Boston University sports fans have plenty to anticipate. From Frozen Fenway against the University of Maine to the Beanpot and Red Hot Hockey at Madison Square Garden in New York, BU is going to compete in many special games.

Men’s basketball will be added to the unique events for BU athletics this year as CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reports that college basketball will be coming to TD Garden this fall.

November 11, six Division I teams in Massachusetts will meet at TD Garden for a basketball tripleheader to open up the season.

In an effort to keep their season-opening rivalry going, the Terriers will face Northeastern University.  BU coach Joe Jones and the rest of the Terriers will look to exact some revenge against the Huskies who defeated the Terriers on a last-second 3-point buzzer beater. The loss was the first of a five-game losing streak to open up the season.

Meanwhile, in the other games of the day, College of the Holy Cross will take on Harvard University and Boston College will be pitted against the University of Massachusetts.

This will be the first event of its kind for these teams as each school looks to start a new college basketball tradition in Massachusetts.
