Boston U. Tops Loyola With Wild Comeback

Momentum is fickle in the Patriot League. When Boston University entered halftime of Monday’s game with an eight-point lead on Loyola (MD), it seemed to reinforce both teams’ trajectories.

Navy Tops Boston U.; Patriot League Stays Unpredictable

Navy’s style doesn’t belong in the Patriot League. In a sea of teams that score lots of points and often give up just as many, the Midshipmen prefer wars of attrition.

Though he is demonstrative on the sideline, Boston University coach Joe Jones is typically even-keeled after games, noting the good and bad from wins and losses alike.
