Hanlan makes 1st team ACC and other links

The ACC named Olivier Hanlan to their 1st team All Conference. Despite his strong showing, he only received one vote for the Player of the Year award.

The Women's Hockey team dropped the Hockey East Championship to BU. Aside from losing, the game wasn't that big of a setback. They are the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and take on Clarkson in the opener.

Florida State swept the baseball team over the weekend. BC had its chances. They blew a save Saturday night. Let's hope they rally for next week's series with Louisville.

Men's Hockey picked up a big commitment from goalie prospect Joseph Woll.

Women's Lacrosse beat Notre Dame 16-5. Next up: Louisville.

Steve Donahue is the leading candidate for the opening at Penn.

BC women's hockey is an excellent program. But they seem unable to ever win the big game. Women's lacrosse has some really exceptional players - terrific recruiting really paying dividends there. Margolis, Stanwick, Mannelly, Rix - all outstanding. Men's baseball - a waste of resources - dump it and use the money elsewhere - we will never be able to recruit the requisite talent to compete for a league championship.

Hanlan's award is justly deserved. Nice to see him go out in style from the Heights.

It's nice to see that the voters didn't hold BC's record against Hanlan.

Did I miss an announcement about Hanlan leaving? or is it just assumed that he will not be back for his senior year.

Nothing announced, but I think it is pretty likely. I'd be interested in what you think.

Hoib: I think Hanlan should stay for his senior year and graduate with a degree.

I still don't think he's made it into the 1st round of the NBA draft, although he is probably on the bubble.

He should buy some insurance from Lloyds (assuming they can still do that) and enjoy his senior year.

Being a college superstar or riding the pine in the NBA? Go Eagles.

The fan in me agrees w/ you. But from his perspective he is now 22. If not in the NBA he'll be a pro somewhere. As a professional basketball player he just has a very few years to make money. So another year in college will cost him allot. The only reason to stay is if he thinks he can get better, pretty hard to do, or next years draft forcasts to be allot weaker, which some experts think could be the case. If he goes pro he'd be smart to finish his degree in the off season.
