Familiar ingredients in the Beanpot

BC and BU are preparing to mix it up again in final

It often has been joked that the Beanpot should be renamed the “Jack Parker Invitational’’ because of the number of times the veteran coach has led Boston University to the championship of the storied tournament.

The Terriers’ 3-1 victory over Harvard in the opening contest Monday night at TD Garden ensured them a spot in the title game for the 26th time in the last 29 years and the 16th time in the last 18 years. Parker, who has been BU’s coach since 1973, has won 21 Beanpot championships.
