In his freshman year at BU, his Division I team was ranked #1 in the country. Matt's favorite memory of his college playing experience was from that winning season when the team beat University of Virginia, 3-2, in front of over 7,000 fans at UVA. His assist in that championship delivered the game-deciding goal. The team's achievements continued through the remainder of his career playing for BU, maintaining status as one of the top twenty teams in the country with Academic All-Conference honors in the 1997-98 season.
