Dempsey takes blame for shooting woes

The BU Bearcats are 0-2 in America East Play and just 3-12 overall. Defensively, they're holding opponents to limited chances lately and keeping them off the scoreboard. Offensively... not so much.

In 15 games, the Bearcats are averaging just 59 points per game and shooting 35% from the floor (26% from beyond the arc). Head Coach Tommy Dempsey attributes some of that to mental frustrations and says it's his job to fix it.

"I think focusing on sets that put them where they need to be in hopes that we convert that play," Dempsey said. "But I think we've taken some shots that weren't the right shot for the right guy at the right time. A good, disciplined team that is executing in those big moments gets the right shot at the right time for the right guy and I think that comes down to coaching."

BU hosts Hartford on Wednesday.
