Bearcats and Terriers Clash at Events Center
The Binghamton Bearcats host the Boston University Terriers at 2:00 PM Saturday at the Events Center (air at 1:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF). The Bearcats are 4-5 and dropped an 82-74 decision to Colgate on Wednesday. The Terriers are 3-6 and in their last game fell to George Washington 64-63.
These two teams used to meet on a regular basis when the Terriers were members of America East. This is the third meeting between the two teams since Boston University moved to the Patriot League. The numbers are in favor of the Terriers. They have won the last ten meetings and lead the all-time series 22-5.
An interesting note is that the Petcash family will come out a winner either way. Binghamton's Dan Petcash is a freshman for the Bearcats while his brother Andrew is a junior guard for the Terriers. Both were standouts at Pine-Richland Township in suburban Pittsburgh ad a large family turnout is expected.
This is the final game for the Bearcats before final exams for the semester. They return to action on Wednesday, December 18 when they travel to Youngstown State to face the Penguins. They return to the Events Center for their final non-conference game on Sunday, December 29 when Hartwick College visits for a 2:00 PM start.
