The Boston University Terriers fell to 4-11 on the season and 0-1 in conference play after losing 69-83 to the Vermont Catamounts on Thursday night. The Terriers were down just four points at half, but the Catamounts gradually extended their lead after intermission. At one point Vermont took a 19-point lead before settling on a 14-point final margin. The Terriers never led after the 11:54 mark in the first half.
Darryl Partin once again did as much as he could for the Terriers, scoring 19 points on 6-for-16 shooting. Unfortunately, D.J. Irving wasn't the player that BU needed him to be. The sophomore guard made just one field goal on the night, a 3-pointer. Matt Griffin fared much better coming off the bench, making his way to the free throw stripe for five of his 11 points.
The Terriers once again struggled up front, especially trying to contain Brian Voelkel of the Catamounts, who pulled in 16 rebounds on the night. Suffice it to say, the traditionally strong Terriers may have an even bigger rebuilding project on their hands than they anticipated heading into the season.
