VESTAL (WBNG) — Close to one hundred people came out to Binghamton University’s Event Center on Tuesday night in hopes the men’s basketball team would pull off another upset.
“Those kids play with their hearts out,” said Binghamton University Men’s Basketball season ticket holder, Ralph Fuller.’
There was no admission to get in and concessions were open, as fans watched on the big screen above Dr. Bai Lee Court.
Vermont had the points going in the first half, and that continued in the second. Binghamton lost 84-51 to end the season.
“It’s not about winning,” said Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger. Last weekend was the first time he saw a men’s basketball playoff win as president of the school. While he was hoping for another one, he’s proud of how the players have grown.
“It’s about how these young men have grown up, become great people,” explained Stenger. “They’re going to go out and represent us as business people in the world, and they’re hoping to look back at this experience and say this is why I’m successful 15-20 years from now.”
