Head coach Mark Macon, entering his third season at the helm, welcomes nine newcomers to the program and returns starting junior point guard Jimmy Gray (8.1 ppg. in AE play) and 6-foot-10 senior center Kyrie Sutton, who ranked in the top-10 in blocks and top-20 in rebounding.
Binghamton begins its first official practice Friday evening and then hosts Mansfield in an exhibition game on November 7. The season-opener against Colgate is set for November 12 at the Events Center.
