BU basketball: rolling at home

It was a grind. Yes, BU lead 30-22 at the half, but Southern kept attacking inside and hustling..and cutting the lead over and over again. SIU cut it to 61-60 with 1:04 to go, but BU made a lay up and went 5/5 from the line in the final minute to win 68-62. Though SIU shot 2 more free throws that Bradley did, they hit only 65 percent of them (13-20) whereas BU hit 15-18. It was a grind.

But BU found a way to win. Now when they can do that in front of a hostile crowd…they will move from “middle of the MVC” to the top.

Now the women are 3-0 in conference, with all wins coming on the road (one against a 2-12 team, one vs. a 6-6 team, one vs. an 8-7 team) and 9-5 overall. They have two home games this weekend (against 500’ish teams Southern Illinois and Missouri State) and have an excellent chance to get to 5-0.
