Fast fact: No school has appeared in more Frozen Fours than the Eagles. But they've won only five of 25 appearances. Their last title came in 2012 right here in Tampa. No coach has won more career games than the 70-year-old York, who has been at BC since 1994, but he coached Bowling Green (1980-94) and Clarkson (1973-79) before that.
