My apologies for the spoiler... saw somebody talking about the game and thought I'd report it here since it's at least close to the topic of the thread, and had no idea there was a tape delay.


i didnt, saw the listing and thought it was live.

anyone not watching, the BU bouncey ball team is leading the conference reg. season champ stony brook at halftime right now by a sizeable margin. Games on TV (I have channel 18 on RCN) worth watching. And it's live too :P

Game is also on ESPN360.com for anybody else trying to watch.

BU bball holds on for the W. interesting scenario, if UNH somehow upsets UVM, the AE championship game is playe at BU next saturday. of course BU and ESPN would want that game at agganis, but there's something else going on there that weekend...

Time for my dream of seeing a Men's hockey game in Walter Brown ;)

Also the championship game is at 12... not sure how quickly Agganis can make the switch but I've heard of ice/court changes being made in three hours.

Not a question of wanting it at Agganis - it has to be at Agganis. AE conference rules say the championship game has to be held in an arena holding at least 3,000 people. Of course if we can't do it, UNH would get to host.

does wba have a basketball court at all? Edit: Per BU website they've hosted bball in there before... really though, I know we don't like our basketball team as much as our hockey team, but putting them in a makeshift place where they haven't played all season for their conference CHAMPIONSHIP... I don't know about that.

Case is listed as 1800, could you really get 1200 extra?

Maybe ice to court but court to ice would probably result in pretty crappy ice.

I'm just lurking but I'm actually pretty enthralled by this conversation. Interesting stuff.

The very mention of hockey @ Walter Brown has me interested... even though I was the first one that mentioned it.

All made more interesting by the fact that WBA was supposed to close Friday for renovations. Not sure if they've actually started working yet -- I'm guessing they were planning on starting on Monday.

Ditto. I found this video a few months ago and even though it's BU beating BC, I couldn't help but think the atmosphere at that place must have been one of the best in the country.

Even at the women's games there, it gets freaking *loud* even with only about 5 of us chanting. The low metal ceiling does wonders.

EDIT: HAHAHAHAHAHA didn't notice it the first time, but at 2:09 you see a bu fan flipping off the BC players.

Didn't see the whock game. But from the box score, it should def be watched!

wba was the home court for bu basket during my years (86-90). just like any other hockey rink they'd lay covering over the ice and build a court with a bullgang. we'd sit in the seats and watch ron moses, dredrick irving, russell jarvis, jeff timberlake, et al and do homework on the empty seats to our left AND right :p

Re: WBA. They can't renovate; whock needs to practice. Mhock at WBA would not surprise because of the really low expected turnout during the break.

Does bu have the thurs-sat qf? If so, there is a way bu could - ahem - sweep all the speculation aside. Cue scarlet in 3...2...1....

No Thurs-Sat series this year. I'm really intrigued by this conversation. Trying to get an answer as I type. I'd love for men's hockey to be moved to WBA for a night. They never draw that much for these QF games anyway.

Edit: I should have an answer once the UVM-UNH game is over. Of course, if UVM wins, it's a moot conversation.

That's what I'm hoping...

I thought somebody on another thread said HE no longer does thur-sat qfs... they didn't last year at least.

Honestly, the basketball program is trying to do better, Chambers is trying to recruit better players.. one of the draws has been more games in the world class facility that is Agganis, and now you're going to tell them they made the conference final, and (if this happens) did well enough to host it, and they don't get to play there because the barely above .500 hockey team is hosting a quarterfinal? Talk about the short end of the stick.

Last years QF attendance:
3825, 4094, 3642

WBA listed as 3806... now clearly you'd get some more people because it's in Walter Brown but it wouldn't be too unreasonable to do it. They could even raise the ticket prices to make up for it if they thought they were losing seats, haven't we always said the problem with a throwback WBA game is too many people would want to go?

Cant believe its been 5+ years since Bourque left was shocked when I heard his name.

I miss Zancannaro (and Vander Gulik)

Kaltinenean (sp) didnt look very good wonder what BC guys thought of him.

Just think Tony back then you were interested in going to BU, the outcome probably didnt bother you at the time.
