From the FreeP: M. basketball beats Marist in defensive struggle

By Luke Coughlan/DFP Staff

When a basketball game ends with a final score of 58-37, it usually indicates a strong, if not downright dominating, performance by the victorious side. That wasn't the case Friday.

The Boston University men's basketball team eventually defeated Marist College by 21 points on Friday night, but the Red Foxes did not make it an easy feat. The Terriers' home opener at Case Gymnasium included eight lead changes, and BU was unable to put much distance between itself and the defensively-minded Red Foxes until 13:29 remained in the game.

After trading baskets with Marist (0-3) for the first seven minutes of the second half, the Terriers (2-2) finally began to pull away during a 10:35 stretch in which they outscored the Red Foxes by a 26-6 margin. During that run, Marist failed to score any points except from the foul line, and 18 of the Terrier's 26 points came from the hot hand of junior guard Matt Griffin.
