Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

There is no doubt he has a different view than most.
After last night's win, over UMBC Mark Macon said...well, take a listen..

" It's like, I'm not going to say a caroling squad coming to your door on Christmas and you just sit there and listen. And sing the 12 days of Christmas and you just listen. And one lady in the back is doing all the singing and the guy up front is just moving his mouth. That's how it was in the first half."

He also had a lot to say about Kyrie Sutton.

The Bearcats big man energized the team with two big second half dunks.
Kyrie has had to earn hi playing time by listening to the coaches and committing to playing defense and rebounding.

Macon says, " We need him to rebound and play good defense. We really do. And he understands that.
Now whether he puts that on the floor or not, that's up to Kyrie. We will demand it out of him, but he has to do it when he's on the floor."

Sutton says, " It comes from working hard in practice and trying to get back in a groove. Just trying to work hard. Basically it comes down to rebounding and trying to play above the rim and use my size to the best of my advantage."

Macon did say he'd like to see Sutton take it strong to the basket like this more often.
They'll need more of that as Binghamton is on the road for 2 of their next 3.
