Circle These Dates

  • 2/3 (at Providence): One of the season’s earliest thrillers last year resulted in Ryan Hilburn tying the game with seven seconds left in regulation before John MacLean won the game with 47 seconds left in overtime. It was a back-and-forth affair between two teams that had high expectations at the time and also saw the breakout of Sean Leahey, who scored five goals for the Friars.
  • 2/26 (vs. Bryant): BU has won both meetings against the Bulldogs in the last two years, including 2018’s overtime finish. Bryant has been a consistently good team in the NEC as well as a good challenge in nonconference play. Marc O’Rourke is a guy worth watching for the Bulldogs, despite going pointless against the Terriers last year.
  • 3/16 (vs. Bucknell): The Bison looked to challenge for an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament leading up to their quarterfinal meeting with BU. But after taking the regular season meeting 16-9 thanks to a 9-0 second half, Bucknell was stunned by the Terriers in the rematch. The Bison lose a good amount of their production from a year ago, highlighted by Will Sands.
  • 3/19 (vs. Harvard): A finish that the Terriers would love to forget. BU led 18-12 with 7:06 to go, a game which was pretty much over. But the Crimson didn’t go down without a comeback of their own, scoring six goals in that span and their final three regulation goals in a 50 second span. Morgan Cheek completed the comeback in overtime to cap off his 13-point performance. Kyle Anderson had nine points, while BU’s Chris Gray finished with 10 points, eight of them assists.
  • 3/30 (at Lehigh): BU only had one win against the Mountain Hawks, a 10-4 victory in the 2017 Patriot League quarterfinals. Lehigh has won the rest of their meetings, but all of them have been within four goals. Three of them, including last year’s matchup, have been decided by a goal. The Terriers led by two goals in the third quarter before the Mountain Hawks scored the game’s final three goals, capped by Mickey Fitzpatrick’s game-winner with 39 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
