From the FreeP: Irving, Griffin quietly step up backcourt production

By René Reyes/DFP Staff

It’s not easy living in senior forward John Holland’s shadow. Just ask the two most diminutive players on the Boston University men’s basketball team’s roster.

Overshadowed by Holland becoming only the second Terrier in program history to eclipse 2,000 career points in BU’s statement win over the conference-leading University of Maine on Tuesday was the guard play of freshman D.J. Irving and junior transfer Matt Griffin.

The backcourt pair combined for 27 points on 9-of-12 shooting, including a scorching 7-of-8 mark from 3-point range, in the Terriers’ 88-78 victory against the Black Bears.
