The Binghamton Bearcats men’s basketball team is back in action tomorrow afternoon at 2 when they host the Radford Highlanders at the Events Center. The two teams have met just once before.

The Bearcats made just two three-point shots in 19 attempts versus the Mids.
The Highlanders suffered a road loss at George Washington and then defeated Chattanooga and Division II Brevard to move to 2-1.
