From the FreeP: BU blows twelve-point lead in loss to Hartford

By René Reyes/DFP Staff

The Boston University men’s basketball team allowed a 36-24 halftime advantage over University of Hartford to evaporate in the second stanza of its game at Chase Arena on Saturday, handing the Hawks their fourth win in America East conference play.

With just 1:29 remaining in the second half, Hawks forward Anthony Minor converted a layup to give the Hawks (7-12, 4-2 AE) a 56-55 edge, a lead they would not surrender. Hartford went on to win 59-55.

“It’s earth-shattering that we’re finding new ways to lose, unfortunately,” said BU coach Patrick Chambers. “It’s crazy.”

Freshman guard D.J. Irving paced the Terriers (9-12, 4-3 AE) with13 points and four assists, while senior forward John Holland (12 points), junior guard Darryl Partin (10) and junior guard Matt Griffin (10) rounded out BU’s double-digit scorers.

as much good that chambers has brought to the program, there are two things he has NOT changed.....winning the close ones and attendance!
