Revenge has never tasted so good

Wow, talk about some sweet, sweet revenge. UVM, reigning conference champions and newly Nationally ranked 24th in the nation, coming into BU, probably not really thinking about the last time these teams met.

The last time they met the junior duo of May Kostopousomeorother and Courtney Pilalonglastname ended the college careers of one of the best BU team of the decade. This year it was different. Four players from BU remained and played in this game, but it was the two new ones that really made the difference.

Chantell Alford - the new dominant force on the Terriers. She's a mixture of Amarachi Umez-Eronini, a smaller Jesyka Berks-Wiley, and Darrelle Revis. On defense, you on Alford's Island. She picks of more balls than the Dallas Cowboys secondary.

Chantell, with the help of the other fresh face to the Catamounts, Kaitlynn Moran, or Mo, outplayed the likes of the UVM Greek goddesses, if you want to call them that.

I guess BU let the Catawomen to win the first half of the first half. At the 10 minute mark it was 28-12. After that BU just spanked the **** out of Vermont. By halftime BU was winning, 39-37, and the momentum was fully on our side.

The dance team performed a new routine, featuring Bad Romance, which really got the crowd going. Somehow, the basketball team walked in right in time for their performance.

Then the team came back out and didn't lose at any point in the rest of the game. UVM got it tied 49-49, but there was always that feeling that BU had this game and had it in control.

A large part of that was the Greeks in big foul trouble. Kostopolous fouled out with five to go, UVM down six. At that point it was all BU's.

BU played outstanding and continues to own at home. Kelly Greenberg continues to show me wins and that's what makes her one of, if not my most favorite coach at this school. No doubt she bought everyone a drink at 973 last night. If only it was a Saturday night!


Quite a way to make a statement in the America East. There's no relief for the ladies as the other conference powerhouse, Harford, comes to BU on Thursday night.
