VESTAL, N.Y. -- Jordan Reed scored 17 points and grabbed a school-record 18 rebounds as Binghamton defeated Saint Peter's 62-54 Sunday, earning its first victory considerably earlier than a year ago.

The Peacocks (3-1) got within 57-53 on Blaise Ffrench's three-point play with 56 seconds left, but the Bearcats held them off with free throws.
Reed, a 6-foot-4 freshman guard, also had five dunks. Roland Brown added 15 points for the Bearcats.
Ffrench scored 19 points for Saint Peter's and Yvon Raymond had 12 points.
