All you need to know about the Terrier’s 76-67 win over Army West Point two nights ago………..

    From the Terrier Website

Highlighted by senior Nathan Dieudonne’s third straight double-double and sophomore Cheddi Mosely’s team-high 23 points, the Boston University men’s basketball team claimed a 76-67 victory.

Dieudonne led BU with 17 points and a career-high 18 rebounds, most by a Terrier in more than 15 years, to become the 17th in program history to reach 800 career points and 600 rebounds. Mosely stepped up on the offensive end by draining five 3-pointers to break the 20-point threshold for the first time since Dec. 10 and fourth time overall this season. Finishing with 12 points, senior John Papale added two more treys to moved up the BU record book into a tie for second all-time in made attempts from behind the arc with John Holland (’11) at 255 total.

RPG: 7.9 vs. 7.5

In their meeting earlier this year, both played 32 minutes with TK outdueling ND in both points scored (22 vs. 17) and rebounds (11 to 7). It promises to be a battle again on Sunday.

Sitting 5th in the standings at 4-4 with 10 games to go, some would say it’s time to start thinking about the play of others in our quest to finish in the top half of the league or, at least, position yourselves 1 thru 6 to avoid the “Play-in” game scheduled on March 1st. Another consideration for those who really want to monitor team positioning, is to look for “sweeps” and the value the League places on them in tie-breaker situations. For example, a win over BU this weekend would give us a series sweep (2-0) and insure us the higher tournament seeding should the two squads end up with identical records after 18 games played. Teams looking for 2-game series sweeps tomorrow (Saturday, 1/30) include: Colgate, Bucknell, Navy and Loyola. Their opponents in similar order will be: American, Army, Holy Cross, and Lafayette.
