VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton men’s basketball player Ben Dickinson has been selected as the America East Rookie of the Week for the final week of the regular season. Dickinson highlighted his week with a double-double (his fourth of the season) to lead Binghamton to its first win of the season - a stunning four-point win against then-conference leading Vermont at the Events Center last Tuesday. In that game, he produced 16 points and 11 rebounds in 29 minutes, scoring 10 points in pivotal second half. Dickinson added a team-high 21 points on 6-of-9 shooting against Albany two nights later. He boosted his season averages to 13.0 points and a team-high 6.1 rebounds.
Dickinson also was AE Rookie of the Week back on November 13.
Binghamton next heads to Hartford for an America East tournament first-round game against UMBC at 8:15 p.m. Thursday at Chase Family Arena. The ninth-seeded Bearcats and the eighth-seeded Retrievers will meet for the second straight year in the postseason.
