Wildcats Storm Back for Road Win
The Binghamton Bearcats led by nine points at the half and were ahead for 32 minutes in the game but 18 second-half points from standout forward Tanner Leissner proved too much for BU as the New Hampshire Wildcats came from behind to post a road win by a final score of 63-55. The Bearcats rocked the Wildcats in the first half and jumped out to a 14-3 early lead and were up at one point 29-8.
The Bearcats' three-point shooting proved to be a problem hitting just 27 percent of their attempts and with forward Bobby Ahearn sidelined indefinitely with a broken nose Binghamton was able to grab just two offensive rebounds total.
Timmy Rose scored 21 points to lead Binghamton's offense. It was a career high for the Bearcats' point guard.
The win snaps New Hampshire's four-game losing streak and puts their conference record at 6-6. Binghamton has now lost five straight and stands at 3-10 in America East. The Bearcats are idle until Saturday night when they play at Stony Brook at 7 PM (air at 6:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF).
