From the FreeP: Terriers overcome difficult first half to defeat UMBC at Case Gymnasium

By Christopher Dela Rosa/DFP Staff

The Boston University men’s basketball team defeated the University of Maryland-Baltimore County 81–75 Saturday afternoon, but did not walk away without some criticism from its coach.

“No matter what you try to do, when you’re a coach, and every coach feels this way, You’re telling your team they’ve got good players, don’t think about their record, they played this team tough, they played that team tough, they do a good job, they listen to their coach,” said BU (11–10, 5–3 America East) coach Joe Jones at the beginning of his news conference.

“No matter what you say, I think there’s going to be some times where coaches just feel like kids just have a hard time of understanding the importance of doing things correctly and with energy day in and day out,” Jones added. “This was a complete example of that, we came out flat, with no energy right from the start.”

He was correct in stating that his team came out flat at the beginning of its contest against the Retrievers (4–16, 2–5 America East).
