From the FreeP: M. basketball set to face Partin’s old squad La Salle

By René Reyes/DFP Staff

Boston University men’s basketball coach Patrick Chambers recruited La Salle University sophomore forward Aaric Murray back when Murray was a senior in high school and Chambers was the associate head coach at Villanova University. But Murray chose to bring his talents to La Salle instead, and Villanova ended up with another skilled forward by the name of Mouphtaou Yarou.

Chambers knows his BU squad will have its hands full defending the 6-foot-10, 250-pound Murray when the Terriers (4-5) welcome the Explorers (5-3) to Agganis Arena Thursday night with tip-off set for 7 p.m.

A triad of forwards – 6-foot-6 junior Patrick Hazel, 6-foot-8 junior Jake O’Brien and 6-foot-7 freshman Dom Morris – will be called upon to slow down Murray, who is averaging team-highs of 17.1 points and 9.5 rebounds through eight games.
