Three Bearcats win all-conference honors
Andre Heard slams in the final minutes of the game against the University of Maine. The Bearcats won and advanced to the semifinals.
Three BU players were honored as all conference selections in a pre-tournament awards brunch held March 3 at the Binghamton Regency.
Senior Andre Heard was named to the first team, senior forward Sebastian Hermenier earned second team honors and was selected as the Defensive Player of the Year and sophomore point guard Mike Gordon made the third team.
All three players were also picked for the All Defensive Team, a new category this season.
“The recognition of Andre, Sebastian and Mike is a real tribute to the respect that other coaches have for the talent and toughness of these three players,” head coach Al Walker said.
It is the most all-conference accolades Binghamton has received in its five-year America East tenure.
