Boston University Banned From America East Postseason

The Boston Terriers NCAA Tournament chances took a serious hit.

Sometimes you have to deal with the consequences of your actions, and Boston University will be learning that the hard way this basketball season. The Terriers will be banned from the America East Postseason Tournament in 2012-2013 as punishment for leaving the conference the following year to head to the Patriot League. School officials say they were aware that a potential ban could occur, but they were hoping the punishment would be delayed.

This is a tough break for BU, considering the America East RARELY gets an at-large NCAA Tournament bid. Without the automatic bid from the America East Tournament to rely on, chances are pretty slim for the Terriers.
