Bearcats emphasize confidence over momentum

Posted:
With just three games remaining in the regular season schedule, Tommy Dempsey hopes for at least one more win heading into the fast approaching conference playoffs. Many times a win late in the season allows that team to make some noise in the playoffs. Dempsey says that's more because of a confidence boost than momentum.

"I think if you've played well against somebody or beaten somebody, going into the game when you get into conference tournament time, you know you belong on the floor with a team," Dempsey said. "You know, if you play well you can win the game. I think that's important. That gives you confidence. The momentum that gets created throughout the course of the game is more directly affected by how you play that day."

BU hosts Vermont on Wednesday.
