From the FreeP: Terriers win 3rd consecutive game

By Christopher Dela Rosa/DFP Staff

Coming off of an easy weekend victory against Binghamton University, the Boston University men’s basketball team took a road trip up to Burlington, Vt., to take on the University of Vermont, and came away with its third straight victory Tuesday night, by a score of 64-59.

Unlike the first two games of the winning streak, the Terriers (14–11, 8–4 America East) did not get off to a good start. Against the University of Maine last week, BU was able to jump ahead 48–32 in the first half. A few days later against Binghamton University (3–22, 1–11 America East), BU had a 42–28 lead headed into the locker room.

But in Tuesday’s game, it was considerably closer in the first half. BU fell early against the Catamounts (16–8, 9–3 America East). Vermont took a 7–2 lead to start off the game, capitalizing on several Terrier misses.

BU made quick work of the deficit, and just a few minutes later was down only 9–8. The majority of the half was a back-and-forth affair, and with 3:37 left in the half, BU took its biggest lead of the frame, 20–18.
