BU's Role Players Step it Up

I was texting back and forth with Tall-boy concerning our come back late in Saturday's game against Stony Brook, and I was feeling pretty pumped that the Terriers stepped it up late. Tall-boy replied to me with "remember, this is Stony Brook."

Yes, it was Stony Brook, but a sharper-looking Stony Brook. Plus our two leading scorers failed to score a point. Corey was unavailable (not sure why) and Carlos went 0-6.

So I think it's fair to get excited when the rest of the team picks it up and powers through for a win. Tyler Morris found his rhythm today and netted 18 points. Matt Wolff finally found his rhythm too, scoring 13 and going 4-4 from behind the arc. His two three-pointers in a row were pretty much the foundation of our comeback from a 9 point deficit.

And Scott Brittain got a double-double, with 15 points and 10 boards (maybe he was inspired by Tall-boy's latest post).

So what can happen if we get all the pieces working together, and on a regular basis? Can we routinely score 75, 80 points a game? Can we get 30 boards a game and less than 10 turnovers? Can we keep our shooting percentage over 40%, and our free throw percent over 75%?

Can we blow out Vermont on Friday in front of 5000* people at the Greek?

Something like that could do great things for our team's confidence, as well as the fan base on campus.

*I know 5000 people is a stretch, but there's no harm in hoping.

honestly, i feel corey lowe is way overrated as a point guard. he doesn't create offensive opportunities for anyone but himself- and his near half court shots have got to go.

Yeah, last time I saw him play, I think it was against Hartford, he took several ill-advised shots. Who does he think he is, TJ sorrentein? JJ Barea? He's gonna have to work on his shot if he wants to warm the bench for the Mavs.

Didn't go. Went to the real show - Women's basketball.

Corey may shoot a lot (most in the AEC) but he also makes a lot (most in the AEC). And if it isn't clear after tonight's game against UMBC, without him this team looks like a kid with Downs trying to score.
