From the FreeP: Cornell pulls away late from men’s basketball

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

In many respects, the Boston University men’s basketball team took a step forward in its third game under new head coach Joe Jones.

For the second consecutive game, the Terriers out-rebounded their opponent, shot well from the free throw line and saw nearly four of their players score in double figures.

Yet, at the end, BU fell short of its first win of the season as Cornell University withstood a second half rally to hold on for a 71-66 win Sunday in Ithaca, N.Y.

The loss to the Big Red (2-2) drops the Terriers to 0-3 on the season.

After opening the game on a 7-0 run in the first minute and a half of play, BU quickly fell victim to a scoring barrage from Cornell over the next seven minutes as the Big Red put up 20 unanswered points, including three consecutive 3-pointers from guard Drew Ferry.
