The number of points/rebounds Matt Wolff had in BU's most recent loss to the University of Delaware (70-68) for his first career double-double. Wolff was 3-of-5 from the field (including his third 3-pointer of the season and 3-of-4 from the free-throw line, none bigger than the two he knocked down with 12.3 seconds left to (temporarily) give BU the lead. In addition to Wolff's scoring effort, he added 12 rebounds -- one short of his season high -- as he consistently brings a toughness to the court BU coach Dennis Wolff is searching for.
There's a reason Wolff is one of the co-captains on the team and it's because of the way he leads on the court. The loss to Delaware provided a particularly good example of the ways Wolff -- who takes a lot of flack from fans for a variety of reasons -- commands the respect of his teammates. When BU's 3-point shots weren't falling (the Terriers were just 7-of-30 in the game) Wolff cleaned up down low, getting timely put-back layups and hauling in important rebounds. While his game may not be flashy, Wolff's effort is a large part of the reason the Terriers have stayed in every game they've played as he brings a constant presence of intensity for a team that's been searching for it for a large majority of the season. It's a given BU will have a few more off-shooting nights and Wolff will no doubt be a key player in those contests.
