Coach Belzung's Reaction "So excited for our group to come in today and compete and earn a 12-0 regular season. Binghamton really focused on shutting our middles down and our pins stepped up to the challenge and had a great day. Defensively both at the net and in the backcourt we made some adjustments during the first set that put us in a good rhythm for the rest of the match. We cannot wait to get back to Pritchard on Friday as we start the journey for an America East Tournament Championship."
