Corey Lowe played a major role in helping the men's basketball team post a 17-13 record and 11-5 mark in league play. Named first-team all-America East for the first time in his career, Lowe moved to the point guard position mid-season following the season-ending injuries to Tyler Morris and Carlos Strong. He did not disappoint, averaging 4.9 assists per game in league play to finish at 4.1 apg, fourth-best in the conference.
His scoring never dropped following the move either, as he averaged 17.2 points per game, fourth-best in the AE. Due to the injuries, he was on the court for 1,060 minutes, t-4th in the BU record book. He broke the 1,000-point barrier against Notre Dame with a 3-pointer and is currently 10th all-time in the program's history with 1,334 points. He is also the career made 3-point leader with 238 treys.
Lowe had several highlight performances during the year. In the season-opening game with the Terriers trailing by two with 2.1 seconds remaining, Lowe made a coast-to-coast basket against George Washington after grabbing a defensive rebound to send the game to overtime. He scored 23 of his 27 points in the first half during BU's victory against Northeastern.
During the quadruple overtime game against Stony Brook, Lowe scored 21 of his 33 points during the extra sessions for the thrilling victory. He also had a career-high 36 points against Marshall and led the Terriers with 33 points against UMBC in the quarterfinals of the AE tournament.
