Partin leads Boston U to 64-55 win over Hartford
BOSTON (AP) Darryl Partin scored 21 points and Boston University held Hartford to one basket in the final 5:39 en route to a 64-55 victory Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams.
The Terriers (16-15, 12-4 America East Conference) led 49-38 with 11:35 to go, but the Hawks rallied to close to 54-52 on Mark Nwakamma's layup. After BU pushed the lead back to six, Hartford scored what proved to be its final points of the game on Nate Sikma's 3-pointer with 2:47 left. From that point, the Hawks had four turnovers, three by Andres Torres, and missed a pair of treys.
Yolonzo Moore II had 17 points to lead Hartford (8-21, 7-9), which has lost twice after a four-game winning streak.
The Terriers, who have won two straight following two losses, also defeated the Hawks 65-46 on Jan. 22 in a game in which they led 19-13 at halftime.
