The Binghamton University Men's Lacrosse team had their best finish since 2004 last season when they finished second in the conference before falling in the conference playoffs. This year, head coach Scott Nelson says he'd like "take that next step," but admits it's unlikely because of the team's youth. Twelve players graduated last year including three of the team's top five scorers from last year. Fourteen freshmen join the team this year.
Nelson says that while the team is young, their strength is in their depth.
The Bearcats are picked 4th in the America East Preseason Poll.
