6’3″ junior J.C. Snow, a transfer from Bucknell, had 23 points on 9-12 shooting including 3-5 3’s as Binghamton won their second consecutive game on the weekend with a 74-61 victory over U of T Varsity Blues. 6’3″ Reilly Reid had 19 points on 4-16 shooting for the Blues while 6’3″ pg Sage Usher added 13 and steady 6’8″ forward Daniel Johansson added 10.
Except for a six minute stretch in the second quarter when Binghamton got some easy run-outs off perimeter shot misses, the Blues competed, getting to within 9 late in the second half but keeping it around 12-14 for most of the game. Binghamton deployed a zone defense for about 80% of the game and, while Toronto got a series of decent looks, shots simply did not fall (2-8 threes in the first half) and Bobcats took advantage of three consecutive second-quarter Toronto turnovers to establish the early lead.
The game featured the Blues debut of 6’1″ McGill transfer Jawara Pedican (8 points in 20 minutes) who looked good making a couple of later second half threes when the game was in hand for Binghamton and 6’1″ Evan Shadkami who did not score in 12 minutes of time.
