Bearcats Trip Hartford In Women’s Basketball
It was a good night for the Binghamton University women's basketball team as they defeated the Hartford Hawks 55-51 at the Events Center. The victory puts Binghamton's season record at 5-23 and 2-13 in the America East. Hartord falls to 11-17 and 8-7 in conference action.
Vaneeshia Paulk paced all scorers with 24 points...a career high. Paulk hit all five of her three-point shots. Morgan Murphy grabbed 11 rebounds for the Bearcats while Sherae Swinson scored eight points and finished with eight rebounds. Kandace Newry also had a big game for the Bearcats with eight points and six rebounds.
Binghamton has one regular season game to play. That will be on Saturday at 2 PM at the Events Center when UMBC visits. A Bearcat win would elevate Binghamton to seventh place and a battle versus Stony Brook or New Hampshire in the opening round of the upcoming America East Tournament. A Bearcat loss would mean Binghamton would face the regular season champion Albany Great Dames.
