BU Sports: Back In Action

Tonight BU men's basketball travels to Cornell to play the Big Red, not to be confused with the Hofstra Red.

Cornell is 5-6, but definitely not a cookie-cutter Ivy League team. They're non-conference schedule is packed with strong opponents, all of which they've been playing close. Hell, they were beating Syracuse at halftime. BU will have to bring their A, maybe B+ game if they want to win. If they show up like they did against Delaware, you better believe BU will fall below .500 for the first time all year.

The game I'm REALLY worried about is tomorrow. The BU women's basketball team returns to action after a 17-day hiatus. They take on St. John's who are an astounding 11-1. What's worse is that this game is being played at Case Gym, a place where BU hasn't lost in 16 games, meaning the 8th longest winning streak in women's ball in the nation is most definitely on the line.

You can watch the BU men's game tonight HERE. You'll be paying some money though.
