With the National Championship again at UConn, and the several other New England programs on the upswing, perhaps it's time to have a broadened form of the Beanpot for basketball: The annual HARBOPRO Tournament.

The tourney can alternate years among Hartford, Boston and Providence venues, with UConn, Fairfield, Providence, URI, Harvard and BU as the participants.

What a draw!

New England hoops are back!
