The Binghamton Bearcats women's basketball team can keep hot on the heels of the Albany Great Danes and Maine Black Bears in the race for the regular season championship in America East when they host Vermont tonight (Wednesday) at the Events Center at 7 PM.  Albany and Maine are tied for first place at 10-3 while BU is third at 8-4.  The Catamounts are 5-7 in conference action and in 7th place.

The Catamounts have the edge in the all-time series at 21-14 but the Bearcats have won the last five contests.  Binghamton defeated Vermont in Burlington last month by a final of 62-48.  Tipoff tonight is at 7 PM with air at 6:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF with Jonny Wincott.

A couple of Binghamton records are close to falling.  Imani Watkins is the second-leading scorer in Binghamton history and needs 19 points to break Bess Greenberg's all-time points record of 2,024.  Watkins could break that record tonight at home as she is averaging 21.5 points per game.

Alyssa James needs 19 rebounds to hit the 1,000 career mark.  She is averaging 3.3 blocks per game which leads  America East and ranks 7th nationally.
