"We really haven't thought about last year all that much," said Binghamton head coach Kevin McKeown. "Right now, we're just trying to figure out who the 2018 Bearcats are going to be, and we haven't obviously figured that out yet because we don't plan on this being who we are this year. So we're going to get to work. We're going to roll up our sleeves and just figure out how to keep improving and how to be better on game day."
NEXT UP: Tuesday, February 13 at Colgate - 4 p.m.
"It seems like we came ready to play," said Syracuse head coach John Desko. "I thought we were in mid-season form almost today. Their clears were perfect, the number of shots and ground balls we got, the number of face-offs. So I think we took care of what we could take care of today, and it was good to see for this time of year, especially."
NEXT UP: Saturday, February 17 vs. Albany - 2 p.m.
