Boston U went 4-2 over their first six games this year, losing to UConn and SEMO. Since then it’s been a 3-5 run for the Terriers featuring losses to Milwaukee, UC Davis, Notre Dame, UMass Lowell and Navy. 

In the Navy game on Friday, the Terriers were trailing 36-28 at halftime. Boston U was outscored 39-30 from there and lost 75-58. Both Walter Whyte and Ethan Brittain-Watts scored 16 points apiece to lead the team. 

Over on the Bucknell side, they hit a 4-2 run out of the gate as well, losing to only Saint Peter’s and Georgia. The Bison are 3-5 since then, losing to Marist, La Salle, Richmond, Rutgers and Holy Cross along the way. 

Matched up against Holy Cross on Friday, the Bison were outpaced 34-22 in the first half. Bucknell outscored the Crusaders 36-26 from there but still lost 60-58. Alex Timmerman topped the team on 18 points and nine boards. 

PICK: I’ll probably take a stab on Boston U here. Also probably not touching this one, though. We should have a pretty good matchup in store, but both teams are coming off fairly unimpressive losses. Boston has been at 67 points or fewer in three straight games, so they’ll need to push the issue on offense in this one. As for Bucknell, they’re in the same boat with just 108 combined points over their last two outings. All things considered I think Boston can get the cover/win in a competitive outing.
