BU Men's Hoops ready for game experience in exhibition Friday

Sticking with the hardwood but talking hoops. The Binghamton University men's basketball team continues to work hard for game one on their schedule. But before the Bearcats start the regular season they have an exhibition contest with SUNY Cobleskill. The fighting tigers aren't bad, they were 17-11 last year and went to the division III national tournament.

And for the last three weeks, Coach Dempsey and his staff have been working to create a good rotation so they can get the most production out of each spot on the floor.

"We do have some guys, some freshman like Everson, Thomas, Timmy, and John Schuman who are all in the rotation right now, so that's four guys that will be their first action and that's what you really want to get out of this, guys playing a lot of minutes and getting comfortable with each other, said Head Coach Tommy Dempsey.

The men will play after the women as part of a double-header on Friday at 8pm in the Events Center.
