The Day After: (BU 82, UMBC 65)

-- Jake O'Brien's career high: O'Brien notched 25 points on 9-of-19 shooting after setting a career-high of 24 two games prior. The emergence of O'Brien as a top and go-to scorer (especially in clutch situations, even when he may be having a bad shooting night) is vital to BU's continued success.
-- Scott Brittain's free throws: Brittain went 10-of-10 from the line after BU coach Dennis Wolff got on him for missing too many in practice. As Brittain continues to get fed in the post and draw fouls, his ability to make the freebies could set him apart.
-- Road blowout: BU continues to demolish conference opponents on the road with another double-digit conference win away from Boston.

-- Getting behind big early: It may not seem like an issue anymore, as the Terriers have become awfully good at coming from behind, but still, BU would ideally not like to be trailing to start a game.
