BU defeats New Hampshire in important America East contest

By Christopher Dela Rosa/DFP Staff

DURHAM, N.H. – On Saturday afternoon, the Boston University men’s basketball team was able to rebound from a painful loss and beat the University of New Hampshire, 69–59.

After losing 75–48 to Stony Brook University last Tuesday, BU (9–10, 3–3 America East) was up against a less daunting opponent in the Wildcats (4–13, 0–5 America East). Going into the meeting, the Wildcats were in the midst of a seven-game losing streak.

At first, things did not seem to be going in BU’s favor, as New Hampshire won the tip and immediately got the ball to one of its best players, forward Patrick Konan. Konan tried a layup and was denied, but he got his own rebound and scored.

Junior forward Dom Morris, who has finally begun to produce consistently in the paint, was able to tie up the game with a layup of his own.
