From the FreeP: Streaking men’s basketball team earns pair of wins

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – If the 2011-12 season for the Boston University men’s basketball season has been anything thus far, it has been a year of runs, both good and bad. But, now just over three weeks removed from a 4-11 overall record, BU is back to streaking again – this time, at just the right moment in the season.

Continuing what has been a nearly unblemished run through conference play, the Terriers (10-11, 6-1 America East) captured two more America East games last week on the road as they took down the University of New Hampshire 52-50 Thursday and routed the University of Hartford 65-46 Sunday.

The pair of wins now gives BU a season-high six-game winning streak that has it within a single game of the .500 plateau, a mark the Terriers have not seen since the Dec. 3 win over Boston College.

Playing in Lundholm Gymnasium for the first time since it scored a season-low 48 points last January, BU was engaged in a half-court, low-scoring and overall defensive battle against a Wildcats (7-11, 2-5 America East) team that thrives off such a style of play.
