Seawolves Invade Events Center to Face BU Men
One of America East's top teams will be in the Events Center on Wednesday night to face the Binghamton Bearcats men's basketball team. The Stony Brook Seawolves are tied for second place in America East with a record of 6-2. Their only conference losses have been to Vermont and UMBC. One of their six victories was against Binghamton on Long Island on January 9 by a final score of 59-46.
The Seawolves are big. In their win over the Bearcats they started 6-11 center Jeff Otchere and brought 7-0 and 269 pound back-up center Alex Christie off the bench. Otchere made it very difficult to attack the basket and made seven blocks in the first meeting. Akwasi Yeboah leads the Seawolves in scoring averaging 17.2 points per game.
Freshman Sam Sessoms continues to pace the Bearcats in scoring averaging 17.8 points per game. Caleb Stewart is second with a 10.7 points per game average. Stewart also leads the team in rebounding averaging 7.3 boards per game. Bearcats coach Tommy Dempsey is hopeful the performance Calistus Anyichie put on in Albany was a preview of things to come. The 6-9 freshman forward was the best Binghamton player on the court for much of the 29 minutes he played. He saw his most playing time of the season and responded with a ten point game that went along with seven rebounds, three steals and one block.
The Bearcats versus Stony Brook game can be heard on News Radio 1290 WNBF with air at 6:45 P.M. Binghamton softball coach Michelle Johnston will join Roger Neel on "Bearcats at the Half" brought to you by Bob Carr 2.0 Printing and Mailing. She will preview her softball team's upcoming season.
