Bearcats motivated to be successful next year

Posted:
The BU Bearcats were perhaps just one or two lucky bounces away from an America East Quarterfinals upset over Stony Brook. As one of, if not the youngest team in Division I Basketball, some of the struggles they experienced were to be expected. Tommy Dempsey said he's proud of the way his team handled every obstacle, but that this season and the way it ended just serve as extra motivation for next year and to get better in the offseason.

"I think guys are always motivated going into the offseason," Dempsey said. "Whether you've had a really good year, you're motivated to get to that next level, if you've struggled you're motivated to get better so you don't struggle moving forward. These guys are Division I basketball players for a reason, it's been very important to them their whole lives. You give them a week to 10 days off and they're ready to go."
