Following Michigan's lead, Boston University announced Tuesday that the men's club team will move to Division I for the 2014 season. Coupled with the school's plan to build a new athletic field for the nationally-ranked field hockey team courtesy of a $3-million gift from Boston-based New Balance, the men's club team will compete in the America East conference, which already includes UMBC. “This is another giant step forward for our program, with strategic investments in programs that are vital to the continued development of our department and the enhanced national visibility of the BU Athletics' brand,” Mike Lynch, the school's assistant vice president and athletic director said.

Loyola men's basketball coach Jimmy Patsos minced no words when leading scorer Dylon Cormier was shut out in the first half Tuesday against Boston University. "I said 'Dylon, they're wearing your jersey [in the stands] and you have no points,'" Patsos said. "He said 'I got it.'" Did he ever. Cormier scored all 16 of his points in the last 11 minutes as the Greyhounds rallied past Boston University, 70-63, before an announced 984 at Reitz Arena in the first round of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.

In my post on Laura Hale Brockway's inane word-nerd quiz at PR Daily ( “So that's how they see us,” June 5), I made a throwaway remark that I could produce a better word-nerdiness quiz myself, and one reader allowed that that might be interesting. So I descended to the crypt where I preserve my trove of sentences to see how I might challenge your ability to spot errors of grammar or usage and other infelicities. Try your hand at these specimens I have brought to light.

COLLEGE PARK - Mark Turgeon has often said that good teams need to win conference games on the road. But the Maryland men's basketball head coach might have added this corrollary: First, you need to establish dominance on your home floor. That suddenly has become an issue for the Terps, who entered the season with a 29-game winning streak against nonconference opponents at Comcast Center.  Saturday's 83-77 loss to Boston University was Maryland's second nonleague loss at home this season.

BOSTON -- The high-stakes trial over 83,000 personal papers of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. ended yesterday with a Suffolk Superior Court jury ruling that Boston University is the rightful owner of the documents.The jury concluded that the combination of a 1964 letter from the civil rights leader to Boston University concerning the papers and the actual delivery of the papers to the university constituted a valid and enforceable charitable pledge.Of enormous historical research value to scholars, the papers cover the early 1950s -- when Dr. King was a doctoral student at Boston University and developing his philosophy of nonviolent social change -- to 1964, by which time he had attained international prominence as a leader of the U.S. civil rights movement.

In the latest and probably final chapter of a closely watched case testing how far universities must go to accommodate disabled students, a federal judge has ruled that Boston University did not have to allow liberal arts undergraduates with learning disabilities to substitute other courses for a two-year foreign-language requirement.The university said that allowing students to circumvent the requirement would fundamentally alter the nature of its program. No substitute course in the history, literature or art of another country, the university said, would give students the same "insider access" to another culture.

Another day, another Houdini act for the UMBC Retrievers. Their big men, Darryl Proctor and Justin Fry, were in serious foul trouble. They were weathering a storm of threes from visiting Boston University. Ray Barbosa's three-point shot wasn't falling. And still the Retrievers found a way to outlast the Terriers, 76-73, yesterday for their sixth straight win to maintain a 1 1/2 -game lead in the America East. Still missing sharpshooter Brian Hodges - out for a fourth straight game with a high ankle sprain - things got worse for the Retrievers (18-7, 10-2)

After a busy first semester last year at Boston University, Hayley Spivey was eager to head home to Florida for spring break. Yet while the theater arts major enjoyed the sun and fun, she also found herself slightly bored. "It was nice seeing my family and friends," recalled Spivey, 19. "But other than relaxing, I didn't do much else. " This year, however, the sophomore was in Maryland for her school break, taking part in a movement that's swept college campuses nationwide. Known as Alternative Spring Break, the concept, which gained popularity in the 1980s and 1990s, centers around students performing community service during their time off, instead of, say, participating in wild parties or beach escapes.

Maryland has pulled out of the Jimmy V Classic against Villanova on Dec. 8 because of "scheduling issues," according to a news release from ESPN. The Terps, who were replaced by Illinois, will take part in the event in 2016. Not playing Villanova takes a major opportunity at a Top 50 win off the table for the Terps, who are scheduled to play Virginia in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge at Comcast Center the week before and also have possible matchups against Iowa State and Arizona State at the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.

No. 1 Loyola Maryland is one win away from doing something it has not done before. If the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League) can defeat Boston University (1-9, 1-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m., they will host the conference tournament semifinals April 25 and the final two days later at Ridley Athletic Complex. Loyola never hosted the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, which was awarded to the previous year's regular-season champion. Denver hosted that league's tournament in 2011 and 2012, and when the Greyhounds won the title in 2012, the ECAC elected to switch the host site to Hobart.

Maryland men's basketball assistant Scott Spinelli is in "serious negotiations" to become an assistant under new Boston College coach Jim Christian, Terps coach Mark Turgeon said Monday. "Nothing's final yet," Turgeon said. Spinelli did not respond phone calls and text messages from The Baltimore Sun.  Spinelli, who came with Turgeon from Texas A&M, grew up outside Boston and recruits heavily in New England. He was instrumental in the Terps landing Jake Layman out of high school and bringing in Evan Smotrycz when he transferred from Michigan.

Having gone three consecutive years without an appearance in the Patriot League tournament, Navy is close to ending that streak. A pair of wins against Lafayette (11-3 on March 7) and Boston University (13-7 on Saturday) means that the Midshipmen (4-5 overall and 3-3 in the conference) own head-to-head tiebreakers over the Leopards (1-7, 1-4) and Terriers (1-8, 1-4). Those tiebreakers could be significant for Navy, which currently sits in sixth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the Patriot League tournament, which runs from April 22 to 27. “We're certainly in the driver's seat, if you will,” coach Rick Sowell said Tuesday morning.

The Loyola men's basketball team has reasserted itself into the hunt for the Patriot League regular-season title with back-to-back wins against Lehigh on Saturday and Lafayette on Monday. With a 3-2 record in the conference, the team sits in fifth place in the standings. The Greyhounds (8-8 overall) are 5-2 at Reitz Arena, including 3-0 against Patriot League foes, but they are winless in two road games in the conference. Coach G.G. Smith knows that record is going to have to change as the team prepares to visit Boston University on Monday and Bucknell on Wednesday.

Maryland is off to a 12-0 start for the 12th time program history and the fifth time in the last six years. The No. 2 Terps, however, are about to run into the toughest stretch of their season, facing No. 4 Boston College Saturday and No. 1 North Carolina on April 5. The Terps have never lost to Boston College, but second-year coach Acacia Walker , a former Terps All-American, has the Eagles at their highest ranking ever. Walker was the Eagles' offensive coordinator for two years before taking the head coaching job, and she's had the attack surging the past few years behind a couple of high-scoring juniors, attacker Covie Stanwick and midfielder Mikaela Rix , both two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference players and veterans of the 2011 world champion U.S. Under-19 team.
