Seawolves Topple BU Women
One of Binghamton University's long-time rivals topped the Binghamton Bearcats in women's basketball on Saturday afternoon at the Events Center. The Stony Brook Seawolves were down 35-27 at the half but used torrid three-point shooting to come from behind and defeat Binghamton 74-59. The Seawolves shot 75 percent from beyond the arc going 12-16 to fuel their comeback. The loss evens Binghamton's conference record at 7-7 and puts them into a tie with Hartford for fifth place. The Bearcats host the Hawks Thursday night at 7 PM at the Events Center.
Binghamton forward Alyssa James had a superb game recording a rare triple-double. James scored 16 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and had 11 blocks. The 11 blocks set a new school and America East record and broke the mark that James set last season. It is the most blocks by a Division I player this year.
Imani Watkins scored a game-high 29 points putting her season average at 19.1 points per game which is second in America East. Carly Boland also hit for double figures to finish with 10 points.
