  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Athletics Shorts: December 11, 2005

Thank you all for bearing with the BC Blog's attenuated posting schedule. The blog will fully return in mid-to-late December.

Men's Basketball

Today's 8:00pm matchup at Maryland is Boston College's first conference game since joining the ACC. The contest will air tonight on NESN as well as on the MSG network.

One interesting story angle is the reunion of former BCers on the Maryland sideline: Terps head coach Gary Williams was a coach at BC while Terps assistant coach Michael Adams was a player for the Eagles. Adams, a prolific three-point sniper during his NBA career, ranks eighth on BC's all-time scoring list and had his No. 23 jersey retired by the Eagles in 1999.

The game will also be a homecoming of sorts for senior point guard Louis Hinnant, who hails from Oxon Hill, MD and played with several Terps during his pre-college days.

Football

Mathias Kiwanuka has been awarded the 67th annual George "Bulger" Lowe Award. The Bulger award is America's oldest college football honor (except for the Heisman Trophy), and recognizes the best Division I-A players in New England. Kiwi is also a finalist for the Hendricks Award, annually awarded to the best defensive end in the nation.

Alums

Former Quarterback Brian St. Pierre was activated by the Baltimore Ravens last week. Back in October, St. Pierre decided to stay with the Ravens' practice squad instead of sign and play for a full-time spot on the Pittsburgh Steelers, citing his belief that his NFL future was in Baltimore.
