From the FreeP: Terriers rally past Albany, can’t hold on vs. UMBC

By Luke Coughlan/DFP Staff

Only two days after it overcame a 16-point deficit against University at Albany to steal a 70-67 win on Saturday afternoon, the Boston University men’s basketball team found itself in a similar 13-point hole against University of Maryland-Baltimore County on Monday night.

Again, the Terriers battled back and led by nine with 4:45 remaining in the game, but this time, they forgot to hang on.

The Retrievers (2-16, 1-4 America East) ended the game with a 16-3 run to steal just their second win of the season from the Terriers (8-11, 3-2 AE) by a final of 71-67.
