Bearcats Face Best in America East in Burlington
The Binghamton Bearcats men's basketball team meets the cream of the crop in America East on Saturday afternoon when they face the Vermont Catamounts at 2:00 PM at Patrick Gymnasium in Burlington. Vermont leads the conference with a 10-1 record and an overall 20-6 mark. The Catamounts only conference defeat came at the hands of the Stony Brook Seawolves early in the conference schedule. Anthony Lamb is Vermont's top scorer averaging 16.6 points per game while grabbing 7.3 rebounds per contest. Lamb was the America East Player of the Year last season.
The Bearcats are 2-9 in America East play and are in desperate need of a win to keep any post season hopes alive. Binghamton is coming off of a tough 75-70 loss to Stony Brook on Wednesday night at the Events Center. BU stayed close in the closing minutes but a bid to tie the game on a three-point shot from Brenton Mills rimmed out and the Seawolves held on for the win. Sam Sessoms led Binghamton scorers with 22 points. Early in the game he scored his 1,000th career point, something only six other players in America East have accomplished in the 41-year history of the conference.
Saturday's game can be heard on News Radio 1290 WNBF live from Burlington. Coverage begins at 1:45 PM.
