Boston, Mass. – Senior guard Katie Terhune had 22 points to lead three players in double figures, as Boston University posted a 73-46 America East Conference victory over Albany on Tuesday, March 2 at Case Gymnasium.


Boston U. (16-10, AE 11-6) used a 13-3 run midway through the second half to pull away for good. Terhune, who shot 8-of-14 from the field, and added six assists and four steals, made two three-point field goals in that stretch. Becky Bonner, a 6-foot-2 junior who transferred from Stanford, hit another long-range jumper from the right wing to give her team 51-33 lead with 8:28 remaining.


The Terriers, who employed full-court pressure and a trapping defense, got off a quick start. Boston U. leaped to a 17-6 lead in the opening nine minutes. Bonner, who had 13 points, hit consecutive layups during the outburst. Terhune converted two baskets off steals, the second became a conventional three-point play when she was fouled, and made a 15-foot jumper.


Albany (11-15, AE 8-9) trailed 29-19 at halftime. But the Great Danes, who are in fifth place in the conference standings, were still within striking distance with 12:34 left when Maree Jones was fouled as she scored in the lane. Jones’ free throw closed the gap to 38-30. Terhune, the school’s all-time scorer with 1,915 points, ignited the decisive run with a 3-pointer on her team’s next possession.


"We did not play with a lot of energy today," said Albany coach Trina Patterson, whose squad committed a season-high 30 turnovers after winning three of their last four outings. "We weren’t very smart and had a lot of mental mistakes which resulted in sloppy play. We just want to take this loss and put it behind us."


Danielle Hutcheson, a 6-foot-4 center, led the Great Danes with 14 points and 15 rebounds, her 10th double-double of the season. Alicia Learn added 10 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals.


"We played exceptionally well on the defensive end," commented Boston U. coach Margaret McKeon, whose team has won all seven meetings in this series. "We did a great job of forcing turnovers, getting steals and turning it into offense."


Adrienne Norris, a 6-foot-1 junior, had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Terriers, who held the visitors to 38.6-percent shooting and totaled 17 steals. Boston U. inched closer to Binghamton in the America East standings, and trails the second-place Bearcats by one game in the loss column.

If the Maine women beat Stony Brook tonight, the Lady Danes will be assured of finishing no worse than in 6th place and avoiding the play in (or is the politically correct term "opening round"?) game. Quite an improvement for a team that finished dead last each of the previous two league seasons.

Hutch had 14 pts and 15 rebounds last night. She's now averaging a double-double in conference play. She's 8th in scoring, first in rebounds, third in blocks and third in field goal percentage. Were it not for the surgery she would certainly be a candidate for POY. Maybe next year.

I think the main rub against Danielle for POY is that we had her last year and posted a crappy record ... it was the combination of having Danielle and Becky on the court finally at the same time that helped lead us upward (amongst other things). If she had just really poured it on with basically the same lineup as last year then she'd be the clear-cut winner. But players emerged (Maree, Sweetland and most of all Alicia) and came back (Becky) and that hurts her chances.
