BU Men Look to Topple UMBC at Events Center
The Binghamton Bearcats play their second America East conference game tonight (Wednesday) at 7:00 PM at the Events Center when they host the UMBC Retrievers. Both teams dropped their conference openers and are 0-1 entering tonight's contest. Overall Binghamton is 6-8 while UMBC is 7-9. The Bearcats are coming off of a 74-62 loss to the Albany Great Danes while the Retrievers fell 86-73 in overtime to UMass Lowell.
This is the 24th all-time meeting between the two teams with UMBC holding an 18-15 advantage. Last season the Retrievers won both meetings. Binghamton defeated UMBC in the 2009 America East Championship game played at the Events Center. Binghamton earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament with that victory. Duke defeated the Bearcats at Greensboro, North Carolina in the first round of that event.
