BU Women Extend Win Streak To Three
The Bearcats won a tough matchup in Massachusetts in their last matchup against UMass Lowell. The road trip continued for the women's basketball team on February 22 as they visited Connecticut to play the University of Hartford.
The first quarter involved a lot of sloppy play from both teams but things tightened up in the second. For Hartford, it was Azariah Wade and her seven points leading the charge. Sierra Smith had six and both Jada Lucas and Carmen Villalobos accounted for four points as the Hawks put up 24 in the half.
Binghamton managed to get their shots to fall more in the second quarter. Kai Moon cracked double-digits with 10 first-half points. Olivia Ramil chalked up six while her sister Annie, along with Karlee Krchnavi, each added five as the Bearcats led 37-24 going into the break.
In the second half, Hartford managed to cut into the lead and made it a close game down the stretch. Carmen Villalobos finished with 14, Azariah Wade ended with 13 and Jada Lucas racked up 12 as the Hawks totaled 65.
Binghamton had a scare in the fourth quarter as Hartford seemed to be on the verge of completing a comeback. Kai Moon fouled out but still tallied 18 points. Denai Bowman notched 14 and Olivia Ramil amassed 11 as the Bearcats won 78-65.
The women are currently 8-6 in conference play, going 19-8 overall. The team will ride their three-game win streak back home for their next matchup on February 26 as they will host UMBC at the Events Center.
