2018-19 Binghamton Bulldogs Organization
Team Owner: Jim Evans
Hi Bulldog fans! Thanks for checking out our website. My name is Jim and I am proud to be the Owner of your beloved Binghamton Bulldogs. I have been involved in Basketball my entire life, at both the collegiate and professional levels, and cant wait to bring a great product to the good people of Binghamton.
We at Bulldog nation are extremely excited to take you on this journey of our inaugural season in the ABA. We plan to give you an entertaining family-friendly experience, with a team that gives tremendous effort on the court, and is involved in giving back to the community. We will play an up-tempo style of basketball that is fun to watch, and our players will play the game extemely hard on both ends of the court.
The team has been very successful in our first 2 seasons, with an overall record of 45-10 and a Northeast Region championship in 2017. This year, the Bulldogs will play host to the 2019-20 ABA Elite 8 National Tournament, which will take place right here in Binghamton in April 2020!
Senior Vice President: Meribeth Derkach
Hey Bulldog fans! My name is Meribeth and I am ecstatic to join the Bulldog team. As the new Senior Vice President with many years of planning successful events, I can't wait to implement some new ideas to make your game day entertainment experience an even better one!
A graduate of Vestal High School, I was a proud member of the Golden Bear cheer squad. I also took part in the planning of many on campus special events, including The King Bruin (Vestal's version of homecoming), Senior Prom, student government social events and the VHS talent show.
From there, I attended Wilkes University and graduated with a doctorate in Pharmacy (and a minor in dance). While attending Wilkes, I was actively involved in many organizations including Student Government, first-year student orientation, the adventure education program, residence life, and the Wilkes University cheer squad.
Ultimately fans, my goal is to create your most memorable sports experience and do whatever I can to help lead the 2018-19 Binghamton Bulldogs to success on and off the court.
Account Manager: Greg Davie
Hi everyone! My name is Greg Davie and I am pumped to be part of a brand new professional team in the Greater Binghamton area.
Approaching 60 years of age, I have announced more than 700 high school basketball games – boys and girls - on WCDO Radio in Sidney since the mid 1980s – including a few played by our own Jimmy Evans. Local sports coverage was my passion for 30 years. An incredible reward came in 2013, with my induction into the Section 4 Sports Hall of Fame. But I also love to give back. I started the Sidney Alumni Basketball Association in 1992 (we just celebrated our 25th anniversary!) and founded the Sidney Alumni Sports Hall of Fame in 2003. Our 15th induction happens in September. Both events are fund-raisers that provide our school with donations and scholarships.
That background, combined with my similar 30+ years in sales has prompted me to want to join the Bulldogs. I'd like to see not only what the Binghamton area can do to promote professional hoops, but also fansand businesses in the surrounding area – they have a lot to offer as well.
As you saw above, I love building things from the ground up, So let's be teammates on the exciting new world of professional hoops...The Binghamton Bulldogs! Call, text or e-mail me to join the team. 607-643-5493....or e-mail me at email@example.com
