With the potential of heavy snowfall throughout the Northeast this weekend both Binghamton Bearcats basketball games on Saturday have changed starting times. The Binghamton Bearcats women's game at the Events Center versus Vermont has been moved from a 2:00 P.M. start to noon. The BU men's game in Burlington against the Catamounts has been moved from a 7:00 P.M. start to 1:00 P.M. The hope is to give the teams that have to travel a better chance of returning home before the bulk of the storm strikes.

Along with the safety involved for teams that travel the other concern is for fan safety. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for our Southern Tier of New York and Northeast Pa. Forecasts call for the potential of heavy snow over a wide area with the heaviest snowfall in our area expected to hit from mid-afternoon on Saturday through the middle part of Sunday afternoon. Amounts predicted range between 12 and 20 inches.
