Will O’Neill, a UMaine fourth-year men’s hockey player, was profiled in the Boston Globe. O’Neill said the experience of playing at Alfond Arena resonated with him from his first game as a freshman, and that coach Tim Whitehead is “head-over-heels” committed to Maine hockey. In another story, columnist Bob Ryan toured New England’s Division I men’s basketball programs and visited Orono on Jan. 11 for a game against Boston University. In the story, Ryan notes that UMaine may have the best pep band in New England.
