Bearcats Fall To No. 4 Syracuse
After a sold start against the much more athletic Syracuse Orange on Saturday night, the Binghamton Bearcats were clearly outmatched and fell 93-65.
C.J. Fair led the Orange with 19 points and Trevor Cooney had 17. The Orange easily picked apart Binghamton's defense and were able to use a sustained outside attack to put the game away. The Orange finished the night having made 13 from beyond the arc.
Binghamton held an early 5 point lead with five minutes gone in the first, but the momentum quickly shifted to the Orange who never looked back.
Jordan Reed lead all scorers in the game with 26 while Marlon Beck had 14 and Nick Madray 11.
The Bearcats fall to 2-7 on the year while the Orange improve to 9-0. Binghamton will face Monmouth on Satruday while Syracuse will take on St. John's on Sunday in their first game at Madison Square Garden since joining the ACC.
