2:00 PM

  • Maine

    (11-16, 5-9 Am. East)

  • Binghamton

    (12-15, 8-6 Am. East)

  • Previous meeting was a 78-57 home win for Maine

  • For Maine it's a chance to build some momentum heading into the playoffs and a chance to stay ahead of NJOT for seeding. For Binghamton it is must win time if they want to claim a home playoff game. They can't afford to be dropping games to the bottom half of the conference.

4:00 PM

  • Vermont

    (18-10, 12-2 Am. East)

  • Bryant

    (17-10, 8-6 Am. East)

  • Previous meeting was a UVM home win 74-64

  • For Bryant it's a shot at some redemption after a hideous turnover filled performance on national TV. Obviously there are plenty of seeding implications for the Bulldogs as well since they can finish anywhere from 2nd to 6th depending on how the tiebreaks fall. For Vermont there are no seeding implications. There is the benefit of tweaking Jared Grasso's nose one more time. I expect Vermont to come out and half ass it since that's what they've done the last two games and now with the one seed locked up, they'll probably lose by double digits.

5:00 PM

  • New Hampshire

    (13-13, 8-6 Am. East)

  • UMass Lowell

    (23-7, 10-5 Am. East)

  • Previous meeting was a UNH home win 69-65

  • For UML it's the final day of the regular season, senior day, and a chance to lock up the 2 seed and 2 playoff home games. For UNH it's a chance to grab ahold of a home playoff game with both hands. A win here will almost certainly give them the edge in any tiebreak scenario.

7:00 PM

  • NJIT

    (7-20, 4-10 Am. East)

  • Albany

    (7-22, 2-12 Am. East)

  • Previous meeting was a NJOT home win 74-67

  • Awww Yesssss...And the primetime game is AE Playoffception. The Playoff game to get a Playoff game. How could this get any more high stakes. For Albany it's win or your fat lady has sung. For NJOT it's win and your in with the possibility of passing Maine in the seeding and avoiding that long trip to Burlington.

Since the loss to UMBC, Binghamton seems to be around 50% shooting every night. They’ve been much, much better, especially from 3 the last few weeks.
Percentages evening out a bit, Maine run gets back to a more respectable 32-26 Bing lead.

Clayton is a nice looking freshman.
Game is reminiscent of the Bing-Vermont game, but now Binghamton is in the other role.
Maine gets their hands on enough passes, Binghamton can’t afford to be making careless ones too.
This would be a disastrous loss. Not because Maine is a particularly bad team, just having gotten off to such a good start with so much on the line.
Binghamton/UMBC game Tuesday should be awesome. So much on the line. Obvious “must win” for the Bearcats!! TCOB!!

3600+ in Binghamton yesterday. Nice to see some big attendance numbers in the AE.
Hoping they can get a similar crowd for Tuesday’s big game!
