Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The America East Conference has released its composite schedule for men’s and women’s conference basketball games for the upcoming season. The Bearcat men tip off conference play at Maine on Jan. 5 while the women open up at UMBC the previous day. Start times for all conference games have yet to be determined.
The 16-game schedule for each squad culminates with a Senior Day doubleheader at the Events Center on March 1. The women have a rematch against the Retrievers while the men meet Vermont.
