Tuesday night, less than eight miles away from the site where the Celtics were beating the Heat in the NBA season opener, Boston College was busy celebrating a season of their own. Four seasons, in fact.
The Eagles' men's and women's basketball and men's and women's hockey teams shared Conte Forum for an unprecedented event: Ice Jam -- half the floor was the basketball court, while the other half was the ice rink.
"We are very excited to bring college basketball and hockey fans together inside of Conte Forum to experience an event like no other," BC's director of athletics, Gene DeFilippo, said. "This will be a great opportunity for the students, alumni and fans of Boston College to get to know our players and coaches on a more personal level and to get them excited for another action-packed winter season."
Bob Costas served as the host, but since he'd probably be pretty easy to jump over (HAHA he's short), B.C. junior guard Reggie Jackson opted to leap over teammate Josh Summers, a 6-10 center (video after the Reggie Jackson-sponsored jump)
Earlier in the evening, he pulled off a between-the-legs dunk, just for good measure.
