BU men's basketball team won't play in America East tournament

“After numerous discussions and considerations of the possible distractions that may occur this weekend, Binghamton University has elected not to participate in the 2010 America East Men’s Basketball tournament.

This action is being done voluntarily as part of our commitment to move forward as we develop a comprehensive plan to address the recommendations of the recent review.

We commend our student-athletes and coaches for the dedication and determination they have maintained throughout this very challenging year. They have far surpassed expectations. However with the controversy currently surrounding the program it is not appropriate we play in this year’s post-season.

We would like to thank the University community, alumni and Greater Binghamton for their unwavering and enthusiastic support. ”

-President Lois B. DeFleur
