VESTAL (WBNG) - Binghamton freshman Albert Odero played the best game of his young Bearcat career Thursday night in Binghamton's loss to UMBC, 78-68. The Oneonta native set career highs in minutes played (25), points scored (14), field goal attempts (13), rebounds (4) and a few others. A big performance for a young player, the type of game that can give Odero momentum heading into the final stretch of the season.
"I felt good," said Binghamton freshman guard Albert Odero. "Whenever coach calls my name, I'm just ready to go out there and give it my all, and contribute to the team and do my best."
On how much of a confidence boost Thursday night was:
"It helps with my confidence," said Odero. "That's one thing I've been trying to keep up, or get up. So, a game like this helps my confidence."
The Bearcats now have some time to regroup and try to make a run at the America East tournament. Binghamton is two games behind Maine for the eighth seed with just five games left. Next up, Stony Brook at home Thursday night.
