men's basketball falls at Boston University 66-54
BOSTON - Carlos Strong poured in 30 points and Boston (10-13, 7-4 America East) drained 13 three-pointers en route to a 66-54 victory over Binghamton (10-14, 3-9 America East) in an America East Conference men's basketball game Thursday night from Case Gym. Strong hit 8-of-10 three-pointers to pin the eighth loss on Binghamton in its last 10 games.
The Terriers trailed 33-32 at the break but opened the second half with a 20-7 run that featured four three-pointers. Binghamton, meanwhile, misfired on 8-of-10 to start the period, hiting just two field goals in the first 10 minutes. Down 52-40 with 9:36 left, the Bearcats went on a 12-3 run to pull within three, 55-52, with 4:45 left. But Strong nailed a three-pointer to stem the tide and Binghamton went scoreless over the final 3:10.
"I don't think we guarded very well," said BU head coach Al Walker. "We made a nice run at the end of the first half but didn't make good stops on the perimeter."
In the first half, the Terriers used a barrage of three-pointers to build a 14-point lead before the Bearcats stormed back. In a span of less than five minutes, Boston went on a 19-3 run that featured seven threes. But Binghamton began to chip away, with Trifunovic scoring six of his 10 first-half points during the late run. Trailing 32-22 with 3:01 to play, the Bearcats scored the final 11 points of the half to carry a 33-32 lead into intermission.
Binghamton returns home to host Maine at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
