This will be pretty brief, partly because no one will get to see this game and partly because I need to somehow write a Bucket game preview sometime today.  I have to admit that I was hoping BU would pull the upset to give IU another opportunity to play a team from a major conference.  Still, BU was a respectable team last year, going 17-13 and 11-5 in the America East.  BU is 0-3, with losses to Iona, George Washington, and Kansas State, all by about 10 points.  The Terriers' first-year coach is Patrick Chambers, a former Villanova assistant. 

BU is an experienced team.  The Terriers return their top 7 scorers from 2008-09, including John Holland, who is averaging over 20 points per game, albeit with some ugly shooting percentages (38/29).  Tyler Morris and Corey Lowe are the others to watch.  The Terriers have struggled to score so far this season and turn the ball over at IU levels (well, no one really does that, but they're close).  BU last win over a major program was a win at Michigan five years ago, and hopefully IU won't let them have another Big Ten scalp.
