No F-ing way were we gonna lose two overtime games in a row against moderately well-known mid-major teams. That's what was going through John Holland's mind Tuesday night. In those exact words.

Having not scored in the first half, Holland decided to wake the hell up and take care of business in the second half, and even moreso in overtime to lead BU to a thrilling 71-68 OT win against Bucknell.

But it's not like he didn't have help. Even though Corey Lowe missed a game winning free-throw with one second left in regulation, he made a clutch runner towards the end of OT to put us up 2, and ended up making the difference (had 19 points by the way). And JOB continued to work on his resume for the all rookie team with 15 points, a block, steal, and 3 boards.

And Matt Wolff somehow got 13 rebounds. What's up with that? No, I'm not complaining, but that's not the Matt Wolff that I know.

Lot's of good stuff, tonight. Really good stuff. Down 16 at one point, we tightened the D, took care of the ball, and were able to claw back thanks to some sharper shooting than we had in the first half. And we got it done at the foul line, which is something we've had problems with in the past. Bottom line, we earned this win.

We still have a lot of work to do, of course, but I'm guessing Wolff goes easy on them between now and their next game on Saturday, because our boys have got to be exausted after their first two games.

What's the over-under on how many overtime games BU is going to have this season?
