Bearcats playing best basketball late in the season

While their overall or even conference record may not reflect it, the BU Bearcats are playing better lately. They've won two of their last three games with two remaining before the playoffs. As the old cliche goes, "it's not how you start, but how you finish," and in the Bearcats case it's better to peak late than not at all.

"We have to be playing our best basketball at the end of the season because that's our only chance to go and beat somebody on the road next week and in the playoffs and this week will have a lot to do with that," said Tommy Dempsey, BU Head Coach. "If we can create momentum through winning I think that'll give us a better chance next week. I just want to finish as high as we can in the standings. That's our goal. We have an opportunity to control our own destiny as far as getting the 5th seed. I think that would be a real positive."

BU plays UMBC on the road Wednesday before returning home to host Maine on Saturday.
