(WBNG BINGHAMTON) As we enter late January, basketball season is in full swing. And for the B-U women's squad, it's been a tough go.

The Bearcats are 4-13 on the year, 1-3 in conference play and 0-6 at the Events Center.

The most recent two home losses have been tough to swallow. A pair of second half leads against Maine and then Stony Brook were squandered. In the most recent loss to Stony Brook, the Bearcats led by as much as 7 points but poor execution was their undoing.

If Binghamton wants to end the schnide at home, coach Nicole Scholl says it's on the players.

"Players need to play," she said after the loss to Stony Brook. "We put them out there and I tell them all the time, 'you guys aren't chess pieces. We've got something set for you, but you need to make reads out of it, as well.' think there's times when we do that really well and other times when we struggle with that a bit."

The women finish up a 3-game homestand Monday when they play host to Albany. The Bearcats will significantly have to improve that execution. Albany sits at the top of the America East with a 4-0 record in conference play.

That game gets underway at 7 p.m. At the Events Center.

The men also get Albany, albeit on the road.

Binghamton is coming off a 20-point loss to Stony Brook. And not only is the team looking for a bounce back, so is sophomore Jordan Reed. The Bearcats' leading scorer and rebounder had perhaps the worst performance of his young career against Stony Brook.

Reed played just 9 minutes due to foul trouble and finished with 2 rebounds while not scoring a single point for the first time in his college career.

BU will need a much stronger effort from Reed against Albany.

That game also slated for 7 p.m tomorrow.
