Boston University vs Texas Halftime Update: Texas 31, BU 21

After keeping it close through the first fifteen minutes, BU’s poor offensive execution cost them as Texas used a 12-2 run to end the half to take a 31-21 lead. Playing against a Texas squad that only returned one of their top eight players, Boston University has turned the ball over 13 times and hit just 27 percent of their shot in the first half.

Boston University held a lead as large as four early in the half and did a fantastic job slowing down the extremely talented but inexperienced Longhorns offense. Junior guard J’Covan Brown heated up at the end of the half though finishing with 16 points on 6-11 shooting including a two 3-pointers.

The Terriers were led in the first half by point guard D.J. Irving with six points on 2-7 shooting. Brown and Irving are the only players with more than five points. One good sign for Boston University has been their play in the paint; the Terries outrebounded the Longhorns 24-15 with 10 offensive boards.
