Binghamton Bearcats Honor Four Seniors Before Tonight’s Game Against Vermont
Four Binghamton Bearcats seniors will play their last home game of their collegiate basketball careers tonight at 7 PM when they face the Vermont Catamounts at the Events Center. Jimmy Gray, Taylor Johnston, Javon Ralling and Mike Horn will be honored in pre-game cermonies prior to tonight’s opening tipoff.
Gray, a Binghamton High School graduate, is averaging 10.4 points per game this season…second in team scoring behind Jordan Reed. Johnston is averaging 5.4 points per game and is 37% in three-point shooting, tops on the team. Ralling is averaging 3.9 points per game so far this season and has started eight times for the Bearcats during the 2012-13 campaign. Horn has averaged 18 minutes per game for BU in his senior season and is considered by many to be the team’s steadiest defender.
The Bearcats carry a conference record of 1-13 into tonight’s game while the Catamounts are 10-4 in America East and fighting for second place. The Catamounts are 24th in the nation in team defense among Division I teams allowing just under 59 points per game. In a meeting in January in Burlington the Catamounts rolled to a 61-37 victory.
