Lowe also had seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Kevin Reed scored 29 points for Maine and saw his last-second 65-foot shot hit the rim to close out Maine’s fifth straight loss.

Reed had 18 points in the second half, scoring 13 in a row.

Tyler Morris hit back-to-back 3-pointers to break a 45-45 tie and put BU (4-10, 1-1) ahead to stay with 12:22 left.
