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.
