The Binghamton University men's basketball team has struggled on offense at times during the first two games of the season.
Coach Mark Macon says that's because his guys are settling for too many jump shots.

Macon says he doesn't get upset when his team takes those shots because he knows they'll start to fall.
But he says at this point, the Bearcats sometimes rely too much on the jumper.
Part of the issue is a young team, that's coming along slowly.
Macon believes once those shots start falling, it'll open up the offense more, and allow for players to drive to the basket.

"We have to move the ball around and again, we have younger guys on the floor that are taking shots that don't need to take them. So we'll be ok. We'll work it in, we'll get guys the ball that need t get the ball when we're on runs and we'll be alright."

The Bearcats are back in action on Friday night when they travel to Fordham.
