BU men's basketball overwhelmed by Boston University, 93-51

Box score

BOSTON -- Boston University (15-12, 10-5 AE) built a 19-point halftime lead and cruised past visiting Binghamton (11-17, 6-7 AE) 93-51 Wednesday night from Agganis Arena. The loss was the Bearcats' fourth straight - all on the road.

The Terriers took command with 49% shooting in the first half and then scored the first nine points of the second half to blow the game wide open. Boston shot 62% in the second half while the Bearcats struggled to 28% shooting (7-of-25).

Junior forward Moussa Camara was the lone BU player in double figures with 12 points. Sophomore center Kyrie Sutton added nine points, six rebounds and two blocks.

Boston put four players in double figures, led by senior guard Carlos Strong's game-high 23 points.

Binghamton trailed by 11 before even breaking a sweat - the third straight game BU looked sluggish out of the gate. Boston led 15-4 just 4:35 into the contest before a 10-2 Bearcat run cut the margin to three, 17-14. But the Terriers rattled off a 13-4 run to restore its double-digit lead. After Wright's three-point play pulled Binghamton to within nine, 30-21, with 4:45 left, Boston closed the half on a 14-4 run to build a commanding 44-25 cushion.

Binghamton returns home to host UMBC Sunday afternoon.

NOTES
Strong and Camara were named America East Players of the Game.
