Bearcats happy to be home despite road success

The Lady Bearcats are on a roll. They've won four of their last six including three of their last four road games. Even so, they've been dominant at home. Their only home loss of the season came last Monday against Albany.

Despite a road loss Wednesday against UMBC, BU is confident in its ability of late especially now that the schedule heads back to the Events Center.

"We obviously play much better at home," said Linda Cimino. "We have a huge home court advantage with our awesome crowd. I think the kids are really comfortable playing on this court. We played really well here even against Albany with a loss. And last year when we played Maine we played really well in the conference tournament so right now our kids are confident that they're capable of beating Maine and at least keeping it within one possession. Anything can happen, we're right there, we're competing and hopefully we can keep it close on Saturday and come out with a win."

BU hosts Maine on Saturday. That game is BU's #Play4Kay fundraiser for breast cancer awareness.
