Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
The road to an America East tournament title begins this week.
And for the first time in a few years, the the BU baseball team is not the top seed heading in.
This year, the Bearcats will carry the number 3 seed into the tournament.
That means they'll start against the University of Maine, a team it just lost 3 of 4 games to this weekend.
Senior Corey Taylor says, "9 of the last 10 years the winner of the America East has not been the winner of the regular season so we're just looking toward that as motivation. Pressures off...as a 3 seed, the pressures on Stony Brook. So we're just gonna go down there and try to catch them off guard a little bit."
The Bearcats will play the first game of the tournament on Wednesday at 11:00 am in Stony Brook.
