BURLINGTON, Vt. – Emanuel Mayben scored 22 points in the second half and D.J. Rivera hit the go-ahead basket with seven seconds left to lead Binghamton to a 85-83 come from behind victory over the University of Vermont men’s basketball team on Wednesday night at Patrick Gym. The Bearcats trailed by as many as 25 early in the second half, but snapped the Cats seven-game winning streak as they fall to 16-7 overall and 7-3 in America East play.

Binghamton outscored Vermont 55-30 in the second half and outrebounded the Cats 42-32 for the game. Mayben finished with a game-high 31 points as he went 11-for-17 from the field. Rivera added 21 and nine rebounds, while Moussa Camara chipped in with 13.

Junior Marqus Blakely (Metuchen, N.J.) led four Cats in double figures with 18 points, six blocks and five rebounds, while senior Mike Trimboli (Norwalk, Conn.) added 14 points and seven assists.

Vermont led 74-57 with 7:10 left in the game before the Bearcats (14-8, 7-3 America East) went on a 20-4 run over the next 5:30 to take a 79-78 lead with 1:36 left. Trimboli tied the game at 83-83 on a three-point play with 44 seconds remaining in the game, but Binghamton’s Rivera scored what proved to be the game-winning lay-up with seven seconds to go.

The Cats had one last chance after the Rivera bucket, as junior Nick Vier (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) raced down the court and kicked it to freshman Garvey Young (Washington, D.C.) who had a decent look at a three, but it hit back rim and time expired.

“It’s a tough loss, things like foul trouble, turnovers and missed free throws hurt us when I thought we had got away from those on our win streak. Give Binghamton credit, they didn’t give up, but this is one of the most disappointing losses I have had in my career and I thought it was based on effort and toughness,” said Vermont head coach Mike Lonergan.
