Binghamton men's basketball announces America East portion of schedule
Bearcats open conference slate with home date vs. UMBC on January 3

Finalized 2006-07 Schedule
America East Release

VESTAL, N.Y. - The America East Conference has released its men's basketball schedule and Binghamton will open its 16-game conference slate on January 3 against UMBC in the Events Center.

The Bearcats will play three of their first four conference games at home, including a January 6 afternoon tilt against reigning America East champion Albany. The January schedule is home-heavy, with BU playing six of 10 games at the Events Center. Down the stretch, however, the Bearcats have just two home games in the month of February.

Binghamton is off on the final day of the regular season (February 25), so the Bearcats will be able to sit back and watch as the remaining eight teams jockey for position heading into the conference tournament, which will be hosted by Boston University on March 2-4. The championship game will be nationally televised on March 10.

Prior to the America East games, BU will play an 11-game non-conference schedule that features high-profile games at New Mexico and University of Miami. The Bearcats will play in the Lobo Invitational on December 28-29, in New Mexico’s 18,018-seat arena known as “The Pit.” There, BU will face West Coast Conference team Pepperdine with a possible matchup against the Lobos in the championship game.

One week earlier, the team will head to Miami to take on an ACC-member Hurricanes program that won 18 games in 2005-06. Also on the trip, the Bearcats will pay a visit to Jacksonville to face North Florida.
