From the FreeP: Poor shooting dooms BU against UNH

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

In a season that has been as maddening as it has been promising, the Boston University men’s basketball team, looking to build much-needed momentum after a win last Wednesday over Binghamton University, fell to University of New Hampshire 60-48 last Saturday in Durham, N.H.

UNH guard Tyrone Conley led all scorers with 26 points in helping the Wildcats (9-12, 3-6 America East) snap a seven-game losing streak against the Terriers (10-13, 5-4 AE).

Poor shooting plagued the Terriers throughout the game, as it has done throughout the season, as the team shot 27 percent from the field (14-of-52). For the season, BU has a collective field-goal percentage of 38.6 percent, ranking them 329th of the 347 Division I men’s basketball teams.

"We got some open looks and just didn’t make them," BU head coach Pat Chambers said. "We got the right guys shots, but they didn’t fall. But I give credit to UNH, they played hard, defended well."
