From the FreeP: M. basketball drops another close one on the road

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

The trend of close road losses continued on Saturday night as the Boston University men’s basketball team dropped a 52-49 decision to Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa.

Junior forward Jake O’Brien, after a series of below-average performances, responded with a game-high 19 points to go along with seven rebounds, but it was ultimately not enough as the Terriers (4-5) lost their second straight game and fell back below .500.

For a team that has shot a listless 37 percent for the season, BU continued to struggle from the field against the Bison (4-6), going 20-of-60 on field goal attempts.

“We couldn’t make shots,” said BU coach Pat Chambers. “When you can’t make shots, it becomes very difficult. You start to grind a little bit, and that basket becomes very tiny.”
