Men's Athletics...Obsessed With Even Numbers

Something I came to realize while spending 5 hours in the library yesterday - BU men's hockey and basketball are obsessed with even numbers -

16 - BU hockey's ranking both in the Coaches poll and in the PairWise rankings.

6 - Consecutive games won by the BU hockey team.

2 - Straight wins by the basketball team.

4 - Straight weeks John HOLLA has won America East Rookie of the Week

4 - Players averaging double figures for the basketball team. Unlikely? Probably not. But who would have thought that Tyler Morris wouldn't be one of them and John Holland would be?

14 - BU hockey wins.

12 - BU hockey conference wins.

12 - BU basketball wins.

8 - BU basketball conference wins.

2 - Place in the standings BU basketball would tie for with a win on Thursday.

2 - Current place the hockey team resides in the standings.

4 - Games left for the hockey team in the regular season.

2 - Games left for the basketball team in the regular season.

6 - Home wins and loses for both the hockey and basketball team this year.

36 - Points for both Boomer Ewing and Petey Mac this season.

2 - Points Tunde Agboola has scored in 4 minutes of play this season. That's a point every two minutes and that makes him one of the most efficient players in college basketball.

Okay, maybe I'm just obsessing too much. Maybe not. GO EVEN NUMBERS, GO!!!!

In other, unfortunate news, it doesn't look like this Green Label Art event at the basketball game Thursday will be going down :(. Sorry all.
