Boston U. Represents the UMC in the Frozen Four

Don't expect me to start doing God's Bracket for the NCAA hockey tournament; I just needed an excuse to post a picture of the Hockey Jesus figurine.

Anyway, the Boston University Terriers are the only team from a religiously affiliated school to advance to this year's Frozen Four. And I'm happy to say that Boston U. gets a little money from United Methodist offering plates. The Terriers play Vermont on Thursday. The winner plays either Miami (OH!) or something called Bemidji State.

Only two other religiously affiliated universities were in this year's bracket: Notre Dame (Roman Catholic) and the University of Denver (United Methodist), both of whom lost in the first round. (Princeton historically has had ties to the Presbyterians but is officially nonsectarian.)

Mercyhurst College, a Roman Catholic school, advanced to the women's Frozen Four but lost in the title game to Wisconsin.
