Dempsey finds positives in opening weekend losses

The BU Bearcats are off to an early 0-2 start after falling to St. Bonaventure on the road by 10 points on Friday and Army at home by 15 on Sunday. While Head Coach Tommy Dempsey will say 0-2 is 0-2, there were a lot of positives to take out of the losses against two very tough teams.

"I thought we were at a tough point Sunday from a sscheduling stand point," Dempsey said. "But I still thought we showed up, we played really hard, we were a step slower than Friday night, I think our legs were a little heavier. But, we also played two very good teams this weekend. Sometimes your record is very indicative of who've you played. We've played two teams that are going to win a lot of games, two teams that are going to have very good seasons and I think we learned a lot. So I don't think it was a lost weekend by any stretch."

The Bearcats travel to Ithaca to take on the in-state rival Cornell Big Red on Wednesday at 6:00.
