From the FreeP: Terriers unprepared in loss to Vermont

By Shep Hayes/DFP Staff

Mere minutes after his team failed to complete an end-of-game turnaround, Boston University men’s basketball coach Joe Jones walked into the media room at Agganis Arena, sat down in a red folding chair and began to discuss how his team failed to win the game.

There was one major issue on the coach’s mind.

“I did not think we were ready to play tonight,” Jones said. “I thought we had three practices where I didn’t feel like it was up to our standards. I did not think we were mentally ready to play tonight, and that’s on all of us – every coach, every player involved in the program.”

The Terriers lost to the University of Vermont 68-67 Wednesday night at Case Gymnasium – their first home loss of the conference season. The loss is the second of the Terriers’ first conference-losing streak of the year.
