As mentioned on Tuesday, the Binghamton University men’s basketball team is looking to make a jump this season in the America East.
After a strong non-conference showing, it didn’t translate into wins come league games, posting only two conference victories.
Bearcats head coach Tommy Dempsey told me that he felt he hasn’t done enough to challenge his team with a solid non-conference schedule to prepare them for America East play.
However, he says, this season that’s going to change.
“We have games scheduled at Northwestern. We have games scheduled at Notre Dame. We have games scheduled at Michigan. So, it’s going to be a very competitive, very tough non-league schedule for us. But, I know that gets your players juices flowing,” Dempsey said.
Talk about big tests for the Bearcats.
But the team seems up to the challenge.
