Bearcats prepare for "different matchup" in Mt. St. Mary's

Tommy Dempsey says when setting a non-conference schedule, the goal is to play many different types of teams. Tuesday night the BU welcomes Mt. St. Mary's to the Events Center. The Mount are known for their fast paced, up tempo play and 40 minute full court press, which, for Dempsey, is what he's excited for.

"This is a game we like because it gives us an opportunitry to work a lot on our press offense," Dempsey said. "The game is played at a really good tempo because they play so fast. The games have been great. We've played three years in a row now, and if I'm not mistaken all three were one point games, I know at least for sure the last two were , but I think all three may have been one point games, we've won one and they've won two but it's been a very good series."

BU and Mt St. Mary's have played two straight one point games, the last being a 69-68 win by the Mount last season.

Tip off is scheduled for 7:00.
