Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The BU men's basketball team squandered a 13-point halftime cushion and was outscored by 20 in the second half at UMass-Lowell Saturday. It was the latest loss of a seven-game losing streak. It also came without freshman Nick Madray.

He's averaged more than 10 points a game for the Bearcats this season, but he got hurt in practice leading up to Saturday's game. He took a fall coach Tommy Dempsey says is giving Madray trouble in his hip, lower back and groin area.

Madray was back on court doing a few drills on Monday, but Dempsey does not expect him to play Tuesday against Stony Brook.

"We've got to be sure, we can't put him out there until we have all the answers," said Dempsey on Monday. "It's a little vague what's going on, so whether it takes another MRI or once he sees the doctor tonight I think we'll have a better game plan. We're not going to put him in harms way until we have all the answers."

Another tough assignment for the Bearcats comes Tuesday night. America East leading Stony Brook visits the Events Center at 7. In the first meeting, the SeaWolves handled BU by 20.
