Looking back—That Championship Season

On this date in 1978, thirty-one years ago, BU won the third of its four NCAA championships, defeating Boston College, 5-3, the only time the two rivals have faced off in the title game. Sports Illustrated game coverage.

Last year, to mark the 30th anniversary, blog contributor mh82 prepared a comprehensive chronicle of the 1977-78 season when the Terriers put up a 30-2 record en route to the national championship. We’ve posted it again, here.

  • Senior co-captain Matt Gilroy was named the winner of the 57th Annual Walter Brown Award by the Gridiron Club of Boston. The award is given annually to the best American-born Division I college hockey player in New England. A Hobey Baker Award finalist, Gilroy is the on Hockey East player ever named a first-team all-star three times.

  • Earlier this week, Gilroy was interviewed on Toronto's Fan 590 Radio by Doug MacLeand Jack Armstrong about his career at BU. The interview probed at where his pro career will take him, but Gilroy defended as nimbly as he does on the ice.

  • Freshman Chris Connolly and his brother, Jack, a freshman at Minnesota-Duluth, who also is preparing to play in the NCAA tournament, are featured by The Duluth Tribune
