Stat of the Week


The number of points sophomore guard John Holland has scored in four games against America East opponents. Holland has only scored under 20 points in one game (19 against Vermont) and logged a season-high 28 against Binghamton on Saturday. Holland's recent streak has been the best of his career as he's playing with more confidence than he ever has. BU coach Dennis Wolff is pleased with how controlled Holland looks off the dribble, the decisions he's making with the basketball and his defense. The switch from a man-to-man scheme to a zone defense has helped Holland tremendously and perhaps aided him on the offensive end as well. He's been the best player in the conference over the last four games and the Terriers will need him to continue his accelerated play if they hope to continue winning.
