Imani Watkins Earns Fourth Player of the Week Honors
Imani Watkins has been named the America East Player of the Week for the fourth time this season. Watkins continues to lead the Bearcats and America East in scoring averaging 22.3 points per game. That average is also 11th-best among Division I players in the nation. No Binghamton player had ever won the award four times in a single season.
Along with Watkins' prolific scoring she also leads America East in steals per game. Currently she is averaging 2.8 steals per game. Watkins excelled in both of her strengths in BU's 54-52 road win on Saturday. She made nine steals which is a career high and scored 35 points to lead the Bearcats to victory. Watkins was fouled with .06 left in regulation and sank two free throws to break a 52-52 tie and give the Bearcats the two-point win.
With the victory over New Hampshire the Bearcats upped their conference record to 5-3 and overall record to 14-7. Binghamton heads out on the road again on Wednesday night to meet the Vermont Catamounts at Patrick Gymnasium. Tip off is set for 7 PM.
