Binghamton Bearcats Hope For Road Win Tonight
The Binghamton Bearcats men's basketball team hopes the dawning of a new year means better things in store on the hardwood. The Bearcats are in Lowell, Mass. to face the River Hawks at 7 PM (air at 6:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF). It is the America East opener for both teams.
The Bearcats have struggled through 15 non-conference games winning just once. The River Hawks are 6-6 but have lost four straight. Overall in meetings between the two teams stretching back to Division III days UMass Lowell holds a commanding 6-1 advantage. Last year the River Hawks used a 19-2 run out of the gate in the second half to pull out a 62-55 home victory.
Binghamton will have its leading scorer back. Freshman Dusan Perovic, who is averaging 11.6 points per game, is ready for action. He missed Tuesday's non-conference game against the Buffalo Bulls at the Events Center after suffering a concussion in practice over the Christmas break.
