Just when it appeared that the Mount might be letting victory slip out of its grasp once again, it did what its opponents had done the previous two games. It made some plays.
Boston University, which had been playing from behind nearly all night, tied the game at 62 - and the Mount came back to life.
Kelly Beidler made a clutch three-pointer out of the corner and Jeremy Goode, team high 23, picked the pocket of the point guard Johnson and went in for a layup to restore the Mount lead to five.
The Mountaineers were never really seriously challenged the rest of the way.
I'll have a full report tomorrow, but I must admit I'm kind of interested to see how this football game ends up.
A good win for the Mount, who won't have much time to enjoy it, they are back on the road to face American on Monday night.
