    Hawks have more turnovers than points

    BOSTON (AP) -- Chaz Carr scored 22 points and Boston University handed Hartford its worst loss in school history, 73-22 on Thursday night, holding the Hawks to the second-lowest point total since the shot clock was introduced to college basketball.

    Boston U. (9-3, 3-0 America East) has won four of five overall and six straight over Hartford (4-8, 0-3), including the last two by an average of 42 points.

    The Hawks committed more turnovers, 24, than points scored en route to the worst offensive showing by a men's team in the 26-year history of America East conference play. Hartford didn't hit a field goal in the final 16:52 and didn't score in the final 12:05 as the Terriers finished the game on a 19-0 run.

    The lowest point total in a Division I game since the clock started in the 1985-86 season was Georgia Southern's 21 in a 40-point loss to Coastal Carolina on Jan. 2, 1997.

    After the teams traded 3-pointers to open the game, the Terriers went on an 18-2 run and the rout was on. Carr led the surge by burying 3-pointers on Boston's first three possessions, and Shaun Wynn and Bryan Geffen each added 3-pointers as the Terriers went up 21-5 midway through the first half. Carr had 15 points as Boston took its biggest halftime lead of the season, 37-13.

    The Hawks shot 15 percent from the field, including 2-of-23 in the second half, and were outrebounded 44-28. Aaron Cook led Hartford with seven points.

    Etienne Brower and Shaun Wynn each added 11 points for Boston.
