Around the League: 1.05.09

Monday's game:

Binghamton 67, Stony Brook 60
A battle of two of the hottest teams in the conference didn't disappoint as Binghamton had enough to hang on for the win at home in a tightly-contested matchup. With the win, the Bearcats (9-4) ran their winning streak to five games as they once again finished with five scorers in double figures. D.J. Rivera led all scorers with 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, while Tiki Mayben connected on 3-of-4 from downtown. Stony Brook (8-5), which had its four-game winning streak snapped, was led by Tommy Brenton, who recorded 14 points and 11 rebounds for his third double-double of the season. SBU's Dallis Joyner made a layup to pull the Seawolves within one point, 56-55, with 2:17 remaining in the second half, but Dwayne Jackson followed with an offensive rebound and a put-back and Chretien Lukusa converted a layup after a timeout by SBU to put Binghamton up by four with 1:10 left. Next on the horizon for Binghamton is a battle against (arguably) the best team in the conference in Vermont on Thursday.

Wednesday's games:
Hartford vs. New Hampshire, 7:00 p.m.
