Around the League: November 15, 2009

Yesterday's games:
Binghamton 54, Bloomsburg 49
The Bearcats' difficulties were apparent early on, as Division-II Bloomsburg managed to build a seven-point lead midway through the first half, but Binghamton managed to regain the lead before halftime and maintain it throughout the second half. While this will undoubtedly be a long season in Vestal, the Bearcats managed to avoid the embarrassment of losing their home opener to a team from a lower division, and a poor Division-II team at that -- Bloomsburg finished 4-24 last season. Greer Wright had a double-double for Binghamton.

New Hampshire 91, Suffolk 45
New Hampshire opened the season with its annual domination of Division-III Suffolk in a game that was statistically over at the 11:43 point of the second half. Dane DiLiegro had 14 points and 15 boards and four other Wildcats scored in double figures as UNH pulled away early. Now a tougher test awaits New Hampshire -- the Wildcats travel to College Park, MD for a meeting with the Terrapins this Friday.

Today's games:
Hartford at Baylor, 2:30 PM
Morgan State at UMBC, 3:30 PM
Vermont at Buffalo, 5:30 PM
