"We are delighted to be a part of this event," head coach Kevin Broadus said. "We hope to represent Binghamton University and the America East Conference well and are looking forward to many New York City alumni coming coming out to support us."
The Bearcats (10-11) are in the midst of a pivotal stretch in America East play. Binghamton is tied with Vermont for second place - one game behind UMBC - with seven regular season games remaining. The Bearcats host Vermont on Wednesday and then face UMBC Saturday in Baltimore.
Manhattan is currently 8-14 overall, 2-10 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Rider, who edged BU 81-73 in December, sits atop the MAAC standings.
The Jaspers gained national attention with back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 2003 and 2004 under former head coach and Binghamton native Bobby Gonzalez. Manhattan was picked to finish sixth in the MAAC preseason poll and the team has dropped eight straight games.
Binghamton, along with Vermont, Boston University and Albany were selected to represent the America East Conference in the event. Manhattan is one of 10 teams from the MAAC who are participating.
