Immediate Release: January 12, 2006
Binghamton held a 36-33 edge at intermission and tightened up its defense and rebounding en route to the pivotal run. The Bearcats held Maine scoreless for nearly six minutes and junior guard Troy Hailey (Hyattsville, Md.) sparked the offense with nine of his 15 points during the run. In the second half, BU shot 50%, canned 6-of-10 three-pointers and held the Black Bears to just 20 points.
"It was a good defensive effort in the second half," head coach Al Walker said. "We weren't very strong in the first half but it was a great second half. We've come a long way since the beginning of the season. If we shoot that way (47%) and defend the way we did in the second half, we have a chance to beat anyone in this league."
Heard scored 17 points in a back-and-forth first half that featured 13 lead changes and three ties. For the game, he wound up hitting 9-of-15 from the floor, including stellar 6-of-8 marksmanship from beyond the arc.
Binghamton continues its road trip with a game at Boston University on Sunday.
