The Boston University Terriers charge onto the Agganis Arena court determined to trip up conference foe Vermont during back-to-back home games. The men’s team storms the court in a flurry of gym-shoe squeaks to dazzle fans in a rapid-fire showdown of smooth jump shots, thundering dunks, and steely, unwavering eye contact. In his first year as head coach, Joe Jones has managed to guide the men’s team to a first-place tie in the America East as of January 24.
To start the rivalry-fueled evening, Head Coach Kelly Greenberg leads the talented ladies squad, which currently reigns supreme over the America East Conference with a spotless 7–0 record and features a frontcourt ransacking the backboard for rebounds and candy dropped by clumsy scoreboard operators.
