The Binghamton Bearcats men's basketball team is in Fairfax, Virginia tonight to meet the George Mason Patriots.  It is the first ever meeting on the hardwood between the two schools.

The Bearcats at 1-1 and so are the Patriots.  George Mason defeated Lafayette 67-65 and fell at Louisville 72-61. BU defeated Morgan State in the season opener and fell 94-84 to Cornell in Ithaca on Monday night.

The Bearcats are hopeful center Thomas Bruce continues to lead the way.  The junior has back-to-back double doubles including a 28-point effort against the Big Red.


Jaire Grayer paces the Patriots scoring at an 18.5 points per game clip.  The Patriots are members of the Atlantic Ten Conference.
