BU Men Earn Road Win
The Binghamton men's basketball team completed a sweep of the UMass Lowell River Hawks Sunday afternoon with a 64-57 victory at Tsongas Center. Earlier in the day the BU women defeated UML 75-70 in overtime. The win for the men was their first conference win of the season and puts their record at 1-5. The River Hawks fall to 3-4 in America East play.
The teams were tied at the end of the first half at 24-24. Binghamton raced out to a 19-4 run to open the second half and never looked back. Willie Rodriguez and Marlon Beck each scored 17 points for the Bearcats. Beck hit a trio of three-point shots to account for half of the six three-pointers scored by BU. He is coming off of an 18 point game against Vermont on Thursday night.
The Bearcats host UMBC on Wednesday night at 7:00 PM (air at 6:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF). Binghamton then travels to Maine to face the Black Bears next Saturday afternoon.
