Binghamton Bearcats Play A Tale of Two Halfs

WNBF News/ Roger Neel Photo

The Binghamton Bearcats men’s basketball team looked great in the first half but bad in the second half in today’s 62-55 loss to the UMass Lowell River Hawks in Lowell, Mass.  Binghamton was firing on all eight cylinders in the first 20 minutes.  Th Bearcats hit 15-28 shots, close to 54% from the floor and took a 35-22 lead into the locker room at half-time.

The first half magic quickly faded as the River Hawks started the second half with a 19-2 run to take the lead.  The River Hawks’ scoring ace Akeem Williams was held to just three points in the first half but exploded for 16 second-half points to lead his team to victory.  Williams came into today’s game averaging better than 14 points per game.  He scored 23 in the UMass Lowell  71-59 win over Binghamton at the Events Center in January.

The victory puts the River Hawks America East record at 5-4 while BU falls to 1-8.  Binghamton was without forward Nick Madray who suffered a lower body injury in yesterday’s practice and did not dress for today’s contest.  He is listed as day to day as far as future play. Binghamton plays three of its next four games at home including Tuesday’s match-up against conference co-leader Stony Brook at 7 PM (6:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF).
