Boston University Vs. UMBC Final Update: Terriers Decimate UMBC

There was some fear Boston University might overlook the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Tuesday night as they looked forward to a prime-time Friday night matchup at Stony Brook. Within five minutes the Terriers showed they wouldn't overlook the Retrievers for a second year in a row and the rest of the game became a highlight reel for the streaking Terriers.

Behind 17 points from Darryl Partin Boston University (11-11, 7-1) got back to .500 and earned sole possession of first place in the America East Conference behind a 83-48 shellacking of the Retrievers (3-17, 2-6).

Partin and the rest of the Terriers starters all played 24 minutes or less but still managed to make their mark. Sophomore forward Travis Robinson had 10 first half points and added six rebounds and three assists in the win. Point guard D.J. Irving added nine points, a team-high seven assists and forwards Patrick Hazel and Dom Morris combined for 14 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks as Boston University dominated the paint.

Sophomore forward Chase Plummer tied Partin with a game-high 17 points and a game-high nine rebounds. Classmate Jamar Wertz added 12 points off the bench in the loss, as the Retrievers shot just 30 percent from the field.

Boston University shot an even 50 percent (29-of-58) for the game and knocked down nine 3-pointers. The Terriers controlled the paint with a 17-rebound advantage (45-28) and 38 points in the paint.
