BOSTON -- Maurice Watson, Jr. scored 20 points and had six assists to lead Boston U over Colgate 66-58 on Wednesday.
The Terriers (12-6, 5-0 Patriot League) shot 48 percent from the floor, including 8 of 15 from beyond the arc. Dom Morris added 15 points for Boston, which won their fifth game in a row.
Colgate (6-10, 0-5) was led by Murphy Burnatowski with 27 points. No other Raider player reached double-digits.
Boston U trailed by two at halftime, but a 9-4 run right at the start of the second half gave the Terriers a tight lead. Boston led by as much as seven in the half, but Colgate trimmed that to two, 60-58, on a Burnatowski 3-pointer with 2:42 left.
That was Colgate's last points though, as a Watson hit a jumper and a pair of free throws down the stretch to seal the win for Boston.
