Scouting Binghamton

  • The Bearcats, picked to finish seventh in America East, have dropped their last seven games and have scored over 60 points just twice in that span.
  • Shooting has been a problem for the Bearcats, who are just 38% from the field this season. 
  • Despite the struggles, Binghamton's best efforts have come from its freshmen and sophomores, including leading scorer Jordan Reed (14.0 PPG) and two-time Rookie of the Week Marlon Beck. In fact, Binghamton's top five scorers are all either freshmen or sophomores.
  • Yosef Yacob has led the Bearcats in scoring in five of the last seven games, averaging 13.9 points during the span.
  • Binghamton has struggled with defense in the second half; the Bearcats are allowing opponents to shoot 51.7% in the second half during the last seven games.

If Stony Brook Wins...
