By Shep Hayes/DFP Staff

Saturday afternoon, the only team without a win in NCAA Division-I men’s basketball entered a game aganist Boston University. Saturday evening, that team finished its game still winless.

Binghamton University fell to the BU, 68-53. With the win, the Terriers snapped a two-game losing streak of their own, and improved their record to one game shy of .500 for the third time this season.

In front of at crowd of 3,232 – which included six fans in the Bearcat student section wearing paper bags over their heads – at the Events Center on Binghamton’s campus in Vestal, N.Y., BU (12-13, 8-3 America East) built an eight-point lead in the first half. The Terriers enlarged it to as many as 22 points over the Bearcats (0-23, 0-11 America East) with 2:27 left in the game en route to the win.

The Terriers first-half offense was built around 3-point shots and free throws. BU hit 4-of-8 treys it attempted in the first frame, and it was a perfect 6-of-6 from the free-throw line in the first, and 15-for-19 at the line in the game.
