Binghamton Bearcats
The men’s basketball team was involved in a scandal, which damaged both its reputation and performance. It turned out the university had compromised admissions and educational standards in an attempt to get better players for their men’s basketball team. As a result of the scandal, the team lost several players and staffers. Since then, the team has never managed to accrue a winning record in overall or conference play.
As for the women’s basketball team, it has never appeared in Division I Tournament, but it competed in the Division III Tournament from 1995 to 1998 and Division II in 1999.
