|Men's basketball defeats Bloomsburg 86-65 in final tune-up|
VESTAL, N.Y. - In the team's second and final exhibition game before the 2002-03 season tips off, Binghamton men's basketball defeated Bloomsburg 86-65 Sunday in West Gym. The Bearcats, who open their regular-season at home on November 23 against Lafayette, used a 31-8 run to open the game, and never looked back. Binghamton built a 26-point halftime bulge and put all 11 dressed players in the scoring column by game's end.
Senior forward Jeffrey St. Fort (Miami, Fla./Monsignor Pace) scored 10 of his game-high 18 points in the first half. Freshman forward Sebastian Hermenier (Rockville, Md./Maret School) and sophomore center Nick Billings (Kodiak, Alaska) each produced a double-double. Hermenier had 13 points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes, while Billings collected 12 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in just 16 minutes of work. Senior forward Stanley Ocitti (Cambridge, Mass./International) scored seven points during that opening run, and wound up with nine points and five rebounds in 12 minutes of action.
The Bearcats pulled down 29 offensive rebounds, and forced 24 Huskies turnovers.
"We had a great first half today," head coach Al Walker said. "We executed well and played tremendous defense. We were a little sloppy in the second half, but it was a terrific overall effort."
