BU Offense Remember's How to Score Points

We did it! We won! We beat the nerds! Ok, it wasn't like we beat a premier team or even a significant mid-major, but it's a start. In a game where the refs felt they had to test their whistles every few seconds for fear that they might stop working (23 BU fouls to Harvards 21), the Terriers outscored the Crimson 79-72.

We can give most of credit for the win to 3 of our amazing sophmores: Corey Lowe - 23 points, Carlos Strong - 21 points, and Scott Britain - 18 points. Carlos Strong is definitely in the middle of his breakout season. He's fun to watch and he will be for the next 3 years.

Marques Johnson even got in on the action with 11 points.

Not sure why there were so many fouls, but since there were almost as many on the other team, I don't think it's something to worry about. And limiting our turnovers to 12 is certainly a large step in the right direction.

Still not a whole lot in terms of points from Wolff and Valdas, but they're putting in major minutes on the floor.

I was impressed at the way the offense ran tonight, it seemed to work fairly well. I hope it continues, because 60 points isn't going to be enough to pull off a win. Let's hope we can bring this momentum to Yale.

well.... certainly, there was a large improvement in the percentage of buckets that fell for us this evening- that helped. It took long enough. Thank god they got brittain involved...though he missed a few down low early, he was a real presence on defense swating balls left and right and going strong to the basket on offense.
Its also wonderful that Strong seems to have slipped back into form. Definately looking up.
But defense has got to get tighter. No doubt.

I agree that our defense needs to get tighter. For being a "defense oriented team", giving up 72 points to Harvard isn't very good.
