Michigan Falls to Boston University
Wednesday night did not go so well for the Men's basketball team. They dropped a home game for the first time this season, losing to Boston University 63-52. Michigan had trouble holding onto the ball all night and turned the ball over 11 times in the first half alone. In the second half the wolverines became deserate and they starting heaving up 3 pointers virtually every time down court. U of M finished the night shooting 3 for 17 from behind the arc. All in all it was a fairly poor performance for a team that had been playing well of late.
The bright spots in a rather dismal performance once again came from some of the younger players. Sophomore Brent Petway had his first career double-double, scoring 13 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Chris Hunter added 13 points. He has become a regular in the box score over the past 3 weeks, you can almost count on 10-12 points out of him each week.
However, Amaker and company can not afford to lose games at home to poor teams such as Boston University. The schedule only gets tougher from here and this was not a good showing. On Saturday Michigan travels out west to play UCLA.
