VESTAL - Suspended Bearcat head coach Kevin Broadus took in tonight's game at the Events Center.

He sat about 10 rows from the floor next to his wife.

As for the game, the Bearcats trailed by 17 at halftime against Marshall, but made a furious second-half comeback, getting as close as three points, before losing 69-55.

Broadus was placed on a paid leave of absence in October after admitting to improper contact with a recruit.

Action Sports spoke briefly with the reigning America East coach of the year at halftime tonight.

He says this is the first home game he's attended, but he did watch the Bearcats play at Rider last week.

He says he speaks with interim coach Mark Macon quite a bit and is proud of the guys for playing hard.

It even looked like Broadus was communicating with the coaches on the bench at certain points during the game.

There is still no word on when the SUNY-led investigation into the BU athletic department will be completed.
