Immediate Release: February 5, 2006
Senior captains Andre Heard (Oklahoma City, Okla.) and Sebastian Hermenier (Rockville, Md.) scored 21 and 18 points respectively, and BU shot a season-best 53% to solidify its hold on second place in the America East - 1 1/2 games behind league-leading Albany.
"It was a good game," head coach Al Walker said. "We played a very strong first half. The second half was a little sloppy but a lot of guys had a chance to play. Overall, it was a terrific defensive effort and I'm glad we were able to put some points up on the board. It's nice to get off that two-game losing skid."
Binghamton scored the game's first six points and held the Black Bears to just seven field goals in the first period (26%). Heard scored 17 of his points in that opening frame. He nailed his first five shots and 7-of-10 for the half.
In the second half, BU's lead swelled to as many as 33 points.
Sophomore point guard Mike Gordon (Plainfield, N.J.) was BU's third player in double figures with 12 points. Gordon hit 5-of-9 from the floor and added six assists.
Maine was led by Philippe Bofia Tchekane, who scored 16 points.
Binghamton next hosts New Hampshire Wednesday night.
