It was announced during the game tonight that BU will host the 2011 Womenís Hockey East Tournament on 5 & 6 March at Walter Brown Arena. This is a surprise as BU and BC are still fighting for the regular season crown, but it turns out that BC has a conflict that weekend with a menís basketball game on 6 March.
It's all about the cake...if women's hockey had a national TV contract like BC does with the ACC, then they would get Conte.....someday it might happen but not in our lifetimes
It was announced Tuesday during the Women's Beanpot that tickets for the 2011 tournament will go on sale Friday, 18 February. You will be able to purchase the tickets online through TicketMaster or at the Agganis box office. They also had a phone number to call, but I didn't pay close attention. It's probably the standard TicketMaster number.
That being said, BC women have averaged 217 people at home games (outside of Beanpot, there were 3 where attendance wasn't listed).
They've had 1952 people total in the 9 dates listed, the men's basketball game will get ~2.5-3x that for just the game. Demand sets the market.
This isn't to demean what the women have done, I went to several over my four years, it's just the way it is.
I'm not sure if I misheard or misremembered, but tickets for the 2011 Championship went on sale today.
