65 Teams in 65 Days: No.60 Boston University

George BarnetteContributor IAugust 16, 2009

Boston U Guard Corey Lowe


Location: Boston, MA
Nickname: Terriers
Conference: America East
Last Year’s Record: 17-13

 

Why they’ll make it: After a disappointing lost in the first round of the America East tournament, the Terriers are looking for a little redemption this season. The Terriers aren’t just hungry though; they’re loaded as well.

With John Holland and Corey Lowe returning, two of the top-five scorers in the conference, they’ll be a headache to defend. Patrick Chambers may be in his first year as head coach, but with four starters back, he’s been handed a cupboard full of talent.

Why they won’t make it: Binghamton is still good. The defending champs return D.J. Rivera to a team that won 23 games last season. They’ll still play a hectic up-and-down style and be a nightmare to prepare for.

After Binghamton and Vermont tied for the regular season title last year, this should, once again, be one of the more competitive conference races in the country. The talent returning to the Bearcats will make sure of that.
