An unfortunate loss in their last matchup against Stony Brook left the Binghamton women's basketball team with a 2-4 record in the America East Conference. With a one-game road trip to New Hampshire on January 25, the Bearcats were hungry for their third conference victory.
New Hampshire had difficulty scoring in the first half against the relentless Binghamton defense. Amanda Torres led the team with seven points. Ashley Storey had five and Ivy Gogolin chipped in three as the Wildcats put up 21 points in the half.

Olivia Ramil tacked on seven and Karlee Krchnavi added six points and six rebounds as the Bearcats took a 32-21 lead with them into the break.
The Wildcats were able to go on a run out of halftime, catching Binghamton off guard. Ashley Storey and Amanda Torres each racked up 14 points. Caroline Soucy notched six as New Hampshire totaled 53 points.
Binghamton shot the ball well from three-point range in the first two quarters and they kept it up in the second half. Two Bearcats recorded a double-double for the game. Kai Moon achieved 25 points with 11 boards while Karlee Krchnavi amassed 14 points and 11 rebounds. Olivia Ramil chalked up seven as the Bearcats were victorious by a final score of 63-53.
With their fourteenth overall win on the season, the team moves to a 3-4 record in the conference. The team will return home to play their next two games, starting on January 29 against the University of Hartford.
