From the FreeP: BU defeats Albany in overtime

By Michael Bagarella/DFP Staff

In a rollercoaster overtime thriller, the Boston University men’s basketball team defeated the conference-leading University at Albany, 85–80.

“It was a quality win,” said BU (10–10, 4–3 America East) coach Joe Jones. “A big win on the road. We have a lot of respect for that team and their style of play, but it was a great win for us — one of the best since we’ve been here.”

The University at Albany (16–5, 5–2 America East) entered as the highest-scoring team in the America East Conference. The Great Danes were also riding a four-game winning streak.

BU stayed with Albany for the first 10 minutes of the first half, preventing the Albany offense from getting started. Nine minutes into the frame, freshman guard Maurice Watson Jr. began draining shots for the Terriers.
