The Binghamton Bearcats men's basketball team faces another tough test at the Events Center Wednesday night at 7 PM when the Army West Point Black Knights invade.  Binghamton is riding a four-game winning streak and checks in at 5-4 this season.  Army is 5-2 and has defeated Binghamton teams in the last six meetings.

The Black Knights compete in the Patriot League and were picked to finish seventh in the ten-team league.  Army defeated the Bearcats last year at West Point 71-60.  Willie Rodriguez paced BU with 18 points while Everson Davis notched 12 points in that game.

This year the Bearcats are led by reigning America East Player of the Week Thomas Bruce who is averaging 15.9 points per game and pulling down 9.2 rebounds per contest.  Right behind him is J.C.Show who is hitting at a 15.3 points per game clip.

The Bearcats will collect new toys for their annual Toys for Tots drive.  Collection barrels are in the Events Center at the southern end of the Events Center entrance.  The game will also be broadcast on News Radio 1290 WNBF with coverage beginning at 6:45 PM.
