Mullins headed to Binghamton University

It’s official. After several weeks of uncertainty about where senior basketball standout Matt Mullins will be playing next season, he has announced he will be a BU Bearcat. The 6’1″ guard from Chenango Valley, who averaged 18.1 PPG last season and led the Warriors to the New York State Class B Final Four in Glens Falls, will be suiting up for the NCAA Division I Binghamton University Bearcats and head coach Kevin Broadus come this winter. He and the rest of the BU team will compete in the America East Conference along with schools like Boston University and the University of Vermont. From the Press & Sun Bulletin:

“Matt Mullins, a Chenango Valley senior and two-time Press & Sun-Bulletin All-Metro selection, will join Binghamton University’s basketball program as a walk-on for the 2008-09 season.

“It’s always been my goal to play at the Division I level, and I want to thank coach (Kevin) Broadus for giving me the opportunity to achieve that goal,” said Mullins, scoring leader for a CV squad that reached the Final Four of Class B state playoffs.

“Walk-on is just a term, it means he doesn’t have a scholarship,” Broadus said. “But if he plays better than a scholarship player, then he’s going to play.”
