Sometimes, Guy Gaudreau would put the nets back-to-back at center ice. Sometimes, he would put each net in the corner, facing the boards, and have his players go three-on-three in a pie slice of the rink. "We did this at the end of every practice for years and years," said Mike Green, the head coach at Bishop Eustace Prep and a longtime assistant to Guy Gaudreau for a series of South Jersey travel teams that featured Gaudreau's son, Johnny. On Thursday night, Johnny Gaudreau will lead Boston College against Union College in the NCAA Frozen Four in the Wells Fargo Center.

BOSTON COLLEGE'S Johnny Gaudreau, St. Lawrence's Greg Carey and St. Cloud State's Nic Dowd yesterday were announced as the three finalists for this year's Hobey Baker Award, collegiate hockey's Heisman Trophy equivalent. The winner will be revealed the evening of April 11 at the Loews Hotel Millennium Ballroom in Philadelphia as part of the week's Frozen Four festivities. Flyers prospect Shayne Gostisbehere, a star defenseman for Union College, was left out of the top three, who are known as the Hobey Hat Trick finalists.

JERRY YORK has been a head coach in college hockey since I was in seventh grade, and I'm turning 56 this year. Born in 1945, no college hockey coach has more victories than his 935, and he's right up there in national championships after winning three of the last six as the head coach of Boston College, where he has been since 1994. A former BC player who previously coached at Clarkson and Bowling Green, York is credited with resurrecting the Eagles' long-proud program, and he did it at least in part by paying attention to the winds of change in his sport.

JOHNNY HOCKEY is coming home. Boston College hockey star and South Jersey native Johnny Gaudreau helped the Eagles advance last night to Philadelphia's first Frozen Four, set for April 10 and 12 at the Wells Fargo Center. In addition to Boston College, top-seeded Minnesota, Union College (New York) and North Dakota will compete in Philly for a Division I men's ice hockey championship. Boston College and Union, the tournament's Nos. 2 and 3 overall seeds, will play in one April 10 semifinal with Minnesota and North Dakota competing in the other.

SETTLING ONTO the couch at his off-campus house which he once described as "not totally 'Animal House,' but along those lines," Union College defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere flicked on the television. Having survived and advanced to their second Frozen Four in 3 years, the Flyers' third-round pick and his teammates watched last night's Northeast Regional final between UMass-Lowell and Boston College intently. They waited with baited breath to learn their opponent for when they take the ice at the Wells Fargo Center on April 10 in the national semifinal.

Annie Murphy ran in from center field to Deptford's huddle in front of the dugout before her team's at-bat in the second inning. With Murphy not due up in the inning, she led a team cheer before walking over to the lineup card. "Carly, Makenzie, Lexi, then top of the order," said Murphy, a senior outfielder and Boston College softball recruit. Rather than sitting on the bench with most of her teammates, she proceeded to watch the inning, and most of her team's at-bats, on top of a bucket of softballs just to the left of the cage surrounding home plate, in a spot where she could get an unobstructed view of the righthanded batter's box. The bucket was also the same seat her coach, Bill Hoskins, used when she was in the field.

If Brandon McIlwain has his way, he's going to have a busy few months ahead of him. The Council Rock North quarterback is one of the area's hottest recruits. He has received scholarship offers from major programs across the country. And he said he wants to visit each of those colleges before the end of the summer. "I'm going to try to," he said. Each day makes that task harder, as McIlwain seems to gain suitors daily. Nebraska added an offer Thursday. Two days earlier, it was California.

YESTERDAY WE published a fans' guide to college basketball conference tournaments, which included the Atlantic Sun Conference, Horizon Conference and Summit League. This underlines two things. One, we love our college basketball. And two, we have a lot of homework to do before the Frozen Four makes its first Philadelphia appearance on April 10 and 12 at the Wells Fargo Center. So as a public service, I thought I would provide a little guide of my own. The first challenge is to get our pucks in order, so to speak.

Chris Bing is the Public League's most valuable player in boys' basketball and is three months from graduation. But it was not until Tuesday afternoon that the Central High senior received his first college scholarship offer. Bing must be a little nervous about an uncertain future, right? "No," the 6-foot-7 forward said. "I was never a highly recruited guy to begin with, so I can live with the little attention I get. " Bing became Central's primary offensive option this season after the team lost its top scorer to graduation.

In this space last week, we thought Syracuse would suffer its first loss of 2013-14 before Wichita State did because of its difficult road schedule. But never in our wildest dreams did we see downtrodden Boston College, a team that had defeated one Division I squad (Virginia Tech) since Nov. 26, going into the Carrier Dome and recording the shocker of the season. Now the schedule really gets tough for Syracuse, which must play its next three at Duke, at Maryland, and at Virginia. "We can't think about" the loss, Orange coach Jim Boeheim said.
