Stony joins the fray

UMaine offers up 16 turnovers in the first half. Binghamton says, 'Thank you, very much,' and administers an 80-55 thumping today at the Events Center. Junior Bernal, Brian Andre and Jordan Cook did not play and radio broadcast did not mention their status.

The loss keeps the Black Bears (7-18, 3-9 America East) in eighth place, a half game behind New Hampshire (7-18, 4-9). But look out behind as Stony Brook (5-20, 2-11), by virtue of a 71-70 overtime win over Vermont, has entered the race to avoid the AE tournament play-in game.

Stony Brook has games at UNH and UMaine next week.

Mathematically, Vermont and BU could still tie UNH and Maine at 7-9 which would I think create a logjam for the 5th seed. BU has been playing well and climbing up the standings. Vermont is on a losing streak and does play both UNH and Maine head to head though as well as a home game tomorrow with the red hot Hartford Hawks.

Realistically though, Maine, Stony Brook and New Hampshire are going after the 7th seed. Stony Brook comes north this week for games in Durham and Orono trying to climb out of the basement.

For those of us who go to the tournament, not playing on Friday night makes for a much more enjoyable weekend. Not sure Dan that both of our teams can avoid the play-in game, but we sure can keep the Seawolves playing on Friday night.
