I don't know what the future holds for Boston University but for one day they showed why they finished atop the Patriot League. The Terriers destroyed Lafayette 91-54 to advance to the conference finals behind strong performances at both ends of the floor. BU burned the nets with 66% marksmanship including 10-21 from beyond the arc while limiting the Leopards to a mere 35.7% from the field which equated to a whopping 17 more field goals. Maurice Watson Jr. poured in 21 points, grabbed seven boards and posted eight assists with DJ Irving netting 17 followed by a 14 point, five yank effort from Travis Robinson.
Boston U is the best team in the Patriot and should go to the Big Dance. Army is healthy and looks dangerous so right now I'll take the points and watch the line...
