Two more America East men's basketball contests take place on Thursday night as Binghamton hosts New Hampshire and Maine heads to Hartford. Both games will air on AmericaEast.TV and can be seen on your desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet for free.

The Bearcats (3-11, 0-1 AE) aim for their second-straight home win when they open home America East play vs. the Wildcats (2-12, 0-1 AE) at 7 p.m. Jordan Reed leads the conference in scoring (16.4 ppg) and is second in rebounding (9.4 rpg). Binghamton leads the all-time series, 15-10, but UNH, which will try to snap a 12-game losing skid, has won the last six meetings in the series.

Also Wednesday, the Hawks (6-10, 0-1 AE) host the Black Bears (3-10, 1-0 AE) at 7 p.m. Both teams are coming off wins with Hartford winning at Dartmouth Tuesday and Maine beating Binghamton Sunday. The game features two of the best shooting teams in the league as Hartford hits on a league-best 46.5 percent of its shots and Maine is third, shooting 45.1 percent. The Hawks have won six of the last seven matchups in the series, but the Black Bears won the last matchup between the two teams.

On Tuesday, Albany (8-7, 2-0 AE) improved to 2-0 in America East play with a 73-72 double-overtime win over UMBC (4-11, 0-2 AE) as John Puk sank a free throw with 0.4 seconds left. Peter Hooley (career-high 27 points) and Sam Rowley (20 points) led the Great Danes while Rodney Elliott paced the Retrievers with 21 points.
