From the FreeP: Fasten your seatbelts

By Luke Coughlan/DFP Staff

Just minutes after the Boston University men’s basketball team put the finishing touches on a pristine 88-78 victory over the America East conference-leading University of Maine on Tuesday night, junior guard Matt Griffin said that “[the team’s] season so far has been a rollercoaster.”

If the first 10 games of conference play serve as a model, this is the part of the ride where the Terriers (11-13, 6-4 AE) come rolling on down the other side of that hill, hands in the air and screaming the whole way. That’s right, BU is going back on the road.

When the Terriers travel to Stony Brook University for a 7 p.m. tilt on Friday night, not only will they be trying to straighten out the rollercoaster track before them by maintaining the high level of play that they displayed on Tuesday, they will be looking to do so by earning just their second conference road win in six tries.
