BU basketball beats St. Joe's...Coyle make U.S. junior team

BU basketball took down the Hawks from Saint Joe's last night at Agganis Arena 85-79. Darryl Partin lead the way with 29 points. John Holland chipped in with 19 while Jake O'Brien added 11 points also. Jeff Pelage made his season debut and grabbed 7 boards while picking up 4 fouls in 10 minutes of work. I think he thought he was playing football out there or just hustling real hard in his limited minutes since that is a foul every 2:30 of action. The Terriers improve to 5-7 and now have a week off before returning to action against Quinnipiac next Wednesday at Case Gym.

In other news, Charlie Coyle made the U.S. World Junior Championship team while both Matt Nieto and Adam Clendening were left off the roster. Nieto was a long-shot to make the roster from the beginning of camp while Coyle was a lock more or less. Clendening seemed bound to make the team but suffered an injury last night in a shoot-out loss to the Czech Republic(read commie bastards). He was apparently injured going down to block a shot and it is unknown how long he will be out. If he is out for an extended period of time, it could be a blow to to the BU defense which is already short-handed this year with onlyPatrick MacGregor not dressing for games. I'll just blame the Yale hockey coach and US coach Keith Allain for his injury because I can. It is his fault for telling him to dive to block shots(whether he did or not is not relevant). It falls on his shoulders or one of the BC players on team. I haven't decided yet but hopefully it is a minor injury and the freshman will be back when HE starts back up Jan. 9th in Vermont.
