The Binghamton Bearcats women's basketball team lost to the Yale Bulldogs 70-64 in a Women's Basketball Invitational (WBI) quarterfinal round tournament game at the Events Center last night.  The Bulldogs  took advantage of poor Binghamton shooting to go up 37-20 at halftime.  A furious comeback effort in the second half by the Bearcats fell short as Yale never relinquished the lead.  Binghamton outscored the Bulldogs  44-33 in the second twenty minutes.  The Bearcats shot just 24 percent from the field in the first half.  Meanwhile, Yale went 14-29 for 48 percent.

The Bulldogs had four players in double digits and were led by Tori Andrew's 16-point performance.  Binghamton's leading regular season scorer Imani Watkins finished with 23 points but went 1-12 in the first half accounting for only two points.  Rebecca Carmody missed several practices leading up to the game with a virus or flu bug but emerged with a strong showing hitting for 17 points and adding eight rebounds.

The loss ends Binghamton's season.  The Bearcats finish with a record of 20-12.  Yale improves to 17-13 and continues in WBI competition.  The Bulldogs up their record to 17-13 and will play a semifinal game  at 6 PM Friday night at home against South Alabama.
