From the FreeP: M. basketball faces national contender in Kentucky

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

After an early-season slate of games largely against teams that Ohio State University president E. Gordon Gee would be liable to deem "Little Sisters of the Poor," the Boston University men's basketball team will travel across the Mason-Dixon Line to take on perennial power University of Kentucky at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky. on Tuesday night.

The Terriers (4-3) are coming off a 66-61 home win against Cornell University on Saturday, when they earned consecutive wins for the first time in the young season.

In the victory over the Big Red, BU was carried by junior guard Darryl Partin, a transfer from La Salle University, whose career-high 32 points were ultimately the deciding factor in propelling the Terriers over the .500 plateau.

Despite having won three of their last four games, the Terriers have struggled on the offensive end, shooting a combined 31.5 percent from the field. BU ranks 297th in Division I in field goal percentage at 39 percent.
