VESTAL (WBNG) — Binghamton University basketball fans, there’s a reason to be excited about this season and potentially the next three. His name is Sam Sessoms. He’s the Bearcats’ new starting point guard and the freshman put on a show in his debut Tuesday night.
The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native dropped 27 points, including 16 in the first half in the season opener against Cornell. He also added five rebounds and a team-high four assists in a game-high 33 minutes.
Sessoms scored more than 2,000 points in high school, so the scoring wasn’t a huge surprise.
The Bearcats did lose the game to Cornell by eleven though and Sessoms is not a fan of losing.
“It felt good to get out there for the first official time, to play in front of that crowd,” said Binghamton freshman guard Sam Sessoms. “It’s a dream you’ve always been waiting for, but I feel like it’s kind of diminished since we lost. I don’t really care how I did, my team, I mean we just lost. I don’t like that.”
Binghamton is back inside the Events Center Friday, November 9 against New Jersey Institute of Technology. Game starts after the women’s game around 8 p.m.
