@Rider 81, Binghamton 73

Binghamton fell to 1-6 yesterday afternoon with an eight-point loss at Rider, 81-73.

Richie Forbes had 23 points and six steals, and the Bearcats staged a gutsy comeback, but it wasn't enough to erase a 16-point deficit with 5:48 to play.

Still no Jaan Montgomery, but I anticipate him returning this week -- the Bearcats were once again out-rebounded, this time by a 43-29 margin.

I've got to wonder if Mike Gordon is more injured than he's letting on. He played a team-high 34 minutes but took only four shots, and I know he's a pass-first PG, but four attempts is uncharacteristically low for the team's best player.

The Bearcats now return home for three straight at the Events Center, starting Wednesday night against Colgate. They'll play four of their final five OOC games on campus before kicking off conference play with a stiff challenge at UVM on January 3.

I'll post a much more extensive analysis on Wednesday night.
