BU men's basketball loses at Central Connecticut State 76-51
Blue Devils use big second-half run to pull away

Box score

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Central Connecticut State (1-3) used a 23-7 run early in the second half to pull away from visiting Binghamton 76-51 Tuesday night from Detrick Gym. The Bearcats (1-2) shot just 29% and went a dismal 0-for-19 from three-point range in dropping their second straight road game.

Trailing 28-24 at the break, BU scored four of the first six points of the second half before its offense fizzled. The Blue Devils embarked on a 23-7 run as the Bearcats managed just one field goal in a six-minute span. The end result was a 53-35 CCSU cushion with 10:23 left. Binghamton pulled no closer than 12 points the rest of the way.

Senior forward Reggie Fuller produced a his fourth double-double as a Bearcat with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Junior guard D.J. Rivera added 13 points.

Central Connecticut State put three players in double-figures, led by Ken Horton's game-high 20 points. The hosts shot 53% from the floor.

"They took it to us in all facets of the game, especially in the second half," head coach Kevin Broadus said. "We have to get back to the basics."

Both teams struggled shooting in the first half, with BU hitting just 10-of-32 (31%) and CCSU managed just 39%. The Bearcats led 24-20 before the Blue Devils closed out the half with an 8-0 run - thanks to a pair of treys.

Binghamton returns home to host Utah Valley this Saturday.
