It's that time of the year to start studying up on your Bracketology. And with the top seed being a revolving door of teams this year, we could be in for a very Mad March. But first up we've got some conference tournaments to take care of.
The Binghamton men's basketball team will look to pull off an upset in the America East when they face number one ranked Stony Brook in the Quarterfinals. A tall task, But as Head Coach Tommy Dempsey said today in a press conference, On a given day, for a given team the ball just finds the basket. But the Bearcats can't leave it up to that to be able to knock off the Seawolves. Stony Brook is 14-2 in conference play this season and Leads the America East in scoring offense.
Coach Dempsey says, "I don't think we have to be perfect but we have to be pretty close. We're going to have to execute our slides in our zone. We have to make sure that we block out on every possession. Make sure our transition defense getting back to the zone. They're things that you work on from October 15th until now. And now's the time that everything has to be well executed."
It'll be a 6:00 pm tip for the Bearcats in Albany this Saturday. You can catch the game on ESPN 3.
