VESTAL (WBNG) — Despite a 3-6 record, Binghamton freshman guard Sam Sessoms continues to shine for the Bearcats, showing no signs of slowing down during his first season of collegiate basketball. Sessoms leads Binghamton in scoring, averaging 18.3 points a game. He also leads the team in minutes (32.9 per game), assists (31) and steals (10).
Graduate student Chancellor Barnard, who played three seasons at Loyola, has seen a lot of hoops and is still in awe of what Sessoms has been able to accomplish so quickly at Binghamton.
“It’s probably been one of the craziest, this is up front, probably one of the craziest freshman campaigns I’ve seen,” said Binghamton forward Chancellor Barnard. “Just his maturity in the way he brings about himself on the court and off the court. He just handles a lot of his business, it’s kind of a model. Just being myself, being a 22-year-old graduate student, sometimes I find myself looking up to him a lot of times on the court and off the court. Just seeing what he is able to do and how he works and how he just handles himself.”
Binghamton hosts Loyola inside the Events Center on Saturday, December 8 at 2:30 p.m.
