After a first-half 14–0 run was executed by the University of Stony Brook, the Boston University men’s basketball team was unable to recover its lost lead and endured a 75–48 loss.
The Terriers (8–10, 2–3 America East) started league play on a bad note after losing by eight against the University of Maine and then by three against the University of Hartford.
Those two losses left the Terriers hungry going into their game against the University of Vermont on Jan. 8, where they unleashed on the Catamounts (10–6, 3–1 America East) with a 41-point second half, which led them to a 63–53 victory.
BU hosted Binghamton University at Case Gym on Saturday and easily defeated the Bearcats (2–15, 0–4 America East), 83–59.
Tuesday night, the Terriers traveled to Long Island, N.Y. to take on the America East’s top team, SBU (13–4, 4–0 America East). It was one of the weakest displays by the Terriers all season, as they were defeated by 27 points.
