Binghamton @ Hartford, tonight at 7

The last five matchups between Hartford and Binghamton have been decided by six points or less, and I would expect tonight's game to be no different.

The Bearcats dominated Boston in their last time out, but their efforts at the Events Center and on the road have been like night and day. I could see Bing coming out and flopping a bit, but Hartford has certainly not been a team to brag about in their OOC schedule this year, with losses to teams like Quinnipiac, Long Island and St. Francis dotting their 6-9 record.

Despite that, I really liked Von Rosenberg and Zeglinski last year at the conference tournament; they can really play when they want to turn it on. However, Lazar Trifunovic doesn't appear to have a big challenge on the inside tonight, with the Hawks starting a pair of freshmen who aren't exactly tearing it up in the paint.

Reggie Fuller will give the Hawks fits tonight, as he's the type of player who gives you all kinds of matchup problems if you don't have the type of guy who fits his description.

Hopefully, Dwayne Jackson will pick up 25-30 minutes tonight.

With a determined Hartford squad looking to turn things around with the onset of their conference schedule, and a Bearcats team that is, on paper, that much better than the Hawks this season, I'm calling a close win for the Bearcats tonight - somewhere in the 60's, with BU winning by about 5.
