Boston U. 72, Harvard 63

BOSTON (AP) -- Corey Hassan scored 17 points and Kevin Gardner
added 16 as Boston University beat Harvard, 72-63, Tuesday night.

The Terriers (1-5) went on a 20-6 run starting late in the first
half to snap an eight-game losing streak dating back to last
season.

Harvard (5-2) was playing without center Brian Cusworth, who
broke his left hand in Saturdays loss to Central Connecticut. The
Crimson shot just 34 percent from the field and 56 percent from the
free-throw line. Leading scorer Jim Goffredo was held to 10 points.

The Terriers shot 53 percent from the field and 61 percent from
beyond the 3-point line. Shaun Wynn had 12 points and five assists
and Ibrahim Konate added eight points and seven rebounds for BU.

Matt Stehle, who had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Harvard, made
three free throws with 2:25 remaining in the first half to give the
Crimson its only lead of the game, 30-28. But the Terriers pulled
ahead 37-32 by halftime.

Stehle's layup with 4:19 left pulled Harvard to within five
points, 64-59, but BU sealed the win on its next possession when
Wynn grabbed an offensive rebound and assisted on Konate's dunk.
