From the FreeP: Strong play of guards boosts BU men’s basketball against Huskies

Going into Sunday’s game, there was a lot to be said about the backcourt of the Boston University men’s basketball team.
For the Terriers (1-0), the dynamic duo of guards in sophomore Maurice Watson Jr. and senior D.J. Irving highlight a strong group of Terriers in the 2013-14 season. Sunday afternoon, the Terriers proved that despite a limited and height-challenged frontcourt, their backcourt can put the extra weight on their shoulders and carry the team when needed.
“We don’t really think we have a size disadvantage,” Irving said. “I feel like we have more heart than any other team that we’ve played against. I’d rather have heart.”
Watson shared a similar sentiment.
“Bigger is not always better,” Watson added. “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”
