Binghamton blowup

According to the Press & Sun Bulletin, Binghamton University has released five more student-athletes from the basketball team in the wake of Troy native Emanuel 'Tiki' Mayben being arrested on Wednesday.

D.J. Rivera, Malik Alvin, Corey Chandler, Paul Crosby and David Fine have all be released from their athletic scholarships by the university.

Rivera was a second team all-conference selection along with Mayben.

This is a huge shakeup to a team that won the America East Conference Tournament last year and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.

“It’s important that everyone who is playing for Binghamton University and for me to be on the same page as to what kind of commitment we expect of our student-athletes, both on and off the court,” Binghamton Bearcats Basketball Coach Kevin Broadus said. “There’s only one captain steering this ship, and that’s me. If any of the young men in our program don’t respect the decisions that have been made or the rules we have in place, then they need to move on with their lives."

Broadus received a contract extension through the 2013-14 season back in June and after a lot of turmoil surrounding the program, I wouldn't be surprised if something came down on him.

Here's the link to the Press & Sun story.

I cannot believe Troy Record does not have article supporting thier Troy High School FB Team on line.The kids posted a third consective shutout win on Saturday with no support from the local newspaper.

You might want to also provide some PR to a very succesful swimming program at THS.

It is unfortunate I need to go the Times Union to read about THS sports.
