BU and BC will host NESN "Flex Games" on February 28 and March 1

The New England Sports Network (NESN) announced today that the Friday, February 28 Northeastern University at Boston University game and the Saturday, March 1 Notre Dame at Boston College game will be broadcast as the final two NESN "Flex Games" for the season. The Friday NU at BU game will face-off at 7:00 p.m. at Boston University's Agganis Arena, with NESN's pregame coverage beginning at 6:30pm. Saturday's game between the Irish and Eagles at Conte Forum will start at 4:00 p.m and be followed by a 30 minute NESN postgame show.

In addition to showcasing one of the league's great rivalries, the NU at BU game will feature a special ceremony between the first and second period at which time Boston University will retire the jersey of the Terriers' legendary coach and former captain Jack Parker. Parker, a three-year varsity player in the Class of 1968, retired last March after 40 years behind the BU bench. The ceremony, originally scheduled for tonight, was postponed (along with the UNH at BU game) due to weather.
