Boston University Terriers
The Boston University Terriers have one of the most successful programs in NCAA Division I. hockey history Boston U. has qualified for the NCAA tournament 36 times, advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four 22 times, and has won five NCAA championships in 2014-15 and 2015-16 and 2016-17 in the National Collegiate Hockey League (NCHC) and American Athletic Conference (AHL).
Boston U. has reclaimed the NCAA crown - one of only four programs to accomplish that feat, with Denver, Michigan and Minnesota also claiming consecutive titles. The men's basketball team won its first national championship in 2014, 15, and 2015-16 in the NCHC and American Athletics Conference.
BU will be one of only four teams to have three consecutive NCAA Division I titles I 2019 men's and women's basketball championships, which are tied with UMass, Syracuse and national champion Virginia. BU excelled last season in the NCHC and American Athletics Conference, winning the regular conference titles - season and tournament titles as well as the first ever.
Hannah Kenneally of Long Island had 63 points, while Alexandra Hank of King's Prussia was a 5-foot-10 tackle who was an all-American academic as a high school student. She will be challenged in the first round of the NCAA tournament, where she will face UMass-Amherst and Boston College.
She has played only one season for BU, but Mary Parker has taken the Hockey East and the Terriers by storm. As a junior, she set a school record with 24 goals in a season and had a career high with 18 points (5 goals, 11 assists) on October 16, 2016. She had only experience and skill as a student on the team and had scored a goal in the Beanpot Championship, which she won against Harvard in 2019. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound junior from Easton, Mass., led Hockey East with 24 goals and had the second-best season of her career.
Boston University is currently on a four-game winning streak to start the Patriot League game against Colgate. After defeating Lafayette, the Terriers face a crucial three-game series - games that include Lehigh, Army, West Point and Loyola.
Since the 1952-53 season, BU has dominated the annual Beanpot tournament, which is contested by college teams from the Boston metro area (the others are BC, Northeastern and Harvard). The series against Boston College is considered one of the most important games in college hockey history. The three-game series, which takes place in the first two weeks of February, will compete against each other to brag about the rights for a year.
Loyola and Navy have been the dominant teams this season, as they were in the 2015 conference title game.
The Terriers were also national runners-up - promoted five times and have won four of their last five Atlantic Hockey championships. The winning streak is the fourth longest in the country and the longest in Atlantic hockey. They also have the second-most wins in school history, behind Boston College (14) and are the national runner-up - five times. Their success has been reflected in great individual success, with 82 former terriers proving their skills.
In the 2014 season, when BU moved from the America East to the Patriot League, the Terriers broke the 10-win mark and had just one win against a ranked opponent. Boston University's hockey team is the school's most successful sports program. They have qualified for the NCAA tournament four times since 1959 and reached the elite eight in 1959.
The team had a terrible time last season, finishing in the bottom half of the Patriot League standings for the second consecutive year. The Terriers ended the regular season with a win over Holy Cross and a loss to Navy, but made it to the Patriots League tournament with wins over Boston College, Boston University and Providence College.
The Terriers' defence conceded 10 goals the following week but managed a third successive win, the first requiring no extra time. The Mountain Hawks escaped with a 3-2 victory over Boston College, holding them scoreless for the final 7: 26 of regulation time, and then a 2-1 victory over Navy.
He has started 15 games, including Saturday's against the Terriers, and has a 2-0 record with 1.01 goals - 1 - against the average and .927 save percentage. Although many of his efforts went into the net, he has not forgotten this one either.
He has appeared in several ESPN commercials and SportsCenter commercials (# 9), and he has participated in the US Men's National Team Development Program, where he even finished fourth in 2002. He's friendly, has left his pets outside and doesn't seem to mind the BC and Northeastern students. Rhett visits the Terriers' offices wearing the same blue and white jerseys as his former teammates, but must have had his fair share of interactions with students and staff at Boston University.
