Boston University Vs. Maine Final Update: Terriers Knock Down Black Bears 67-54

Boston University (14-13, 10-3 America East) did something they couldn't accomplish all season long Thursday night, they went over the .500 mark.

Despite having four of their starters sit to begin the game, the Terriers never trailed in the 67-54 victory over Maine (11-12, 5-7 AE).

The Terriers received a balanced effort in the win, with nine of 10 players scoring and four players finishing with nine points or more. Senior guard Darryl Partin led the way with 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting and sophomore forward Dom Morris added 13 points and seven rebounds.

Center Patrick Hazel finished with nine points and nine rebounds despite coming up limping twice. The senior captain had to sit out for nearly 10 minutes in the second half due to an apparent right knee injury, but returned late in the half to give the Terriers a boost.

Mike Allison led the Black Bears with 15 points and 10 rebounds but it wasn't enough in slowing down Boston University on the glass. The Terriers held a 44-35 rebounding advantage and a 30-24 lead in the paint.

Boston University will be back in action Wednesday when they host New Hampshire at 7 p.m.


Boston University Vs. Maine Halftime Update: Terriers Bench Starters To Begin, Still Lead 30-21

Boston University head coach Joe Jones decided he wanted to teach his starters a lesson Thursday and benched four of his five starters. I think they got the message.

The Terriers jumped out a 12-4 lead eight minutes into the game and never trailed as they earned a 30-21 lead heading into the break. Sophomore forward and senior guard Darryl Partin both scored seven points in just 10 minutes, after having to sit out the first three minutes of the game.

Point guard D.J. Irving added two points, four assists and four rebounds and the fourth benched starter, senior center Pat Hazel, added three points and a game-high eight rebounds.

Maine started out ice-cold, hitting just one of their first 10 shots and never really seemed to settle in with sophomore forward Alasdair Fraser sitting out with an ankle injury. Redshirt freshman Jon McAillan led the Black Bears with six points and sophomore point guard Andrew Rodgers added five points. The pair hit all three of Maine's 3-pointers within the final four minutes of the half, after Maine failed to hit one of their first eight attempts.
