Meaning and History

Binghamton Bearcats Logo History

Since 1988, the sports organization’s logo consisted solely of one image – “Baxter the Bearcat,” which became the university’s mascot in 1999. The logo change occurred in connection with reclassification when the department was included in the first division of the NCAA. The new symbolism depicts a bearcat with the head of a cat and the body of a bear. The beast is in a waiting pose and has extended one clawed paw forward while holding the university’s name with the other. The beast’s mouth is slightly open, showing sharp teeth with fangs, indicating incredible strength, determination, and a resolute attitude.

Below the mascot is the textual part of the logo, arranged in three tiers: the top says “Binghamton,” the middle “Bearcats,” and the bottom “University.” All letters are uppercase, with serifs. In the first word (the name of the sports faculty), they are more expressive and styled like a scratch from cat claws.

Binghamton Bearcats Basketball

Binghamton Bearcats emblem

For some time, the men’s basketball team of this university was involved in a scandal that severely tarnished its reputation and sports career. It turned out that the university compromised educational programs and admission rules to staff the team with the best players, bypassing the academic program. As a result, the university lost several employees and athletes. Since then, the Binghamton Bearcats team has never achieved resounding victories in the overall ranking or in the America East Conference they represent.

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