From the FreeP: BU seeks revenge against Catamounts

By René Reyes/DFP Staff

Five nights after being on the losing end of America East’s “Game of the Year,” the Boston University men’s basketball team can’t be caught getting too high or low about any one contest, as has been this team’s mantra since the first day of BU coach Joe Jones’ tenure.

The University of Vermont is not Stony Brook University, which the Terriers (11-12, 7-2 America East) lost to on Friday, but the Catamounts (13-10, 7-2 America East) are just as much of a physical and disciplined squad, the same one that defeated the Terriers on Jan. 5 by 14 points at Patrick Gymnasium.

Jones admitted before yesterday’s practice that his preparation for Wednesday’s showdown against Vermont at Agganis Arena has not wavered from the previous 23 games of the 2011-12 campaign.

In a tilt that will determine sole possession of second place in the league standings, his players may think otherwise, considering the competitive nature of this BU group.
