Meaning and History

Binghamton Bearcats Logo History

The logo of a sports organization consists of only one image – “Baxter the Bearcat,” which became a university mascot in 1999. The change of logo was a reclassification when the department was included in the first division of the NCAA. The new symbolism depicts a cat-bear with a cat’s head and a bear’s body. The animal froze in a wait-and-see attitude and stretched forward one clawed paw, and the second grabbed the name of the University. The mouth of the beast is ajar. Sharp teeth with fangs are visible in it, indicating incredible strength, determination, and decisive mood.

Under the mascot is the text part of the logo, located in three tiers: the upper one says “Binghamton,” the middle one says “Binghamton,” and the lower one says “University.” All letters are uppercase, with serifs. In the first word (the name of the sports department), they are more expressive and stylized as a scratch from a cat bears claws.

Binghamton Bearcats Basketball

Binghamton Bearcats emblem

For some time, the men’s basketball team of this University was involved in a scandal that greatly damaged its reputation and sports career. As it turned out, the higher education institution jeopardized educational programs and admission rules to equip the team with the best players bypassing the curriculum. As a result, the University lost several employees and athletes. Since that time, the Binghamton Bearcats team has never been able to reach deafening victory points neither in the overall standings nor in the America East Conference, which it represents.

The women’s basketball team never appeared in “Division I Tournament” but participated in the games of the third and second divisions – in 1995-1998 and 1999, respectively.
