THE ARMY-BOSTON UNIVERSITY SERIES
Army is 0-3 all-time against Boston University. Wednesday's contest will mark the first Patriot League match-up between the teams, and the first meeting since 1982, when the Terriers topped the Black Knights, 72-62. The 1982 game was the last in a three-year stretch of meetings between the schools.
LAST TIME OUT
Army posted its third-best shooting night of the year (48.9 percent) during a 64-63 win at American on Saturday afternoon. Hazlett notched game highs of 15 points and eight rebounds against the Eagles, while becoming the 16th player in Black Knight history to reach the 1,000-point plateau. Minato increased her Patriot League-leading double-digit scoring streak to 35 contests with a 14-point performance, while Johnson matched her career high with 13 points. Oertner was the fourth Army player to score in double figures, as she totaled 10, marking the first time at least four Black Knights have posted double figures since six did against Staten Island (12/29). Hazlett scored all 15 of her points in the second half, including a pair of free-throws with 1:44 left to give Army a 64-61 lead. American got back to within one at the 1:30 mark before missing a pair of shots in the final three seconds.
