From the FreeP: Partin latest Terrier to take opponent by surprise after great second half

By René Reyes/DFP Staff

First-year Cornell coach Bill Courtney acknowledged that he didn't focus the bulk of his gameplan on Boston University men's basketball junior guard Darryl Partin, who torched his Big Red squad for a career-high 32 points on 10-of-14 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 from beyond the arc Saturday at Case Gymnasium.

"He hadn't done that yet this year," said the Cornell University bench boss. "No, you don't figure on that. You knew he was kind of a streak shooter, and we talked to the guys about not letting him get going."

And did Partin ever get going.

The 6-foot-6, 190-pound transfer from La Salle University scored 30 second-half points to propel BU past three-time defending Ivy League champion Cornell by a score of 66-61 in the Terriers' first home contest since Nov. 19.
