Women’s Basketball Blitzed at Albany 69-37

Final Stats

ALBANY, N.Y.—Megan Craig scored a game-high 19 points while Ebony Henry added 12 points, leading Albany (20-9,14-2 AE) to a 69-37 rout against Binghamton (12-16, 6-9 AE). The the loss, the Bearcats are now entrenched as the No. 6 seed entering next week’s America East Tournament despite still having one regular season game left to play. The last time Binghamton entered as lower than a No. 5 seed came in 2003, when it was seeded No. 7.

The first 12 minutes of the game gave little indication of the onslaught that would follow. The Bearcats broke a 9-9 tie on a three-point basket by Mallory Lawes with 9:34 left before halftime and appeared to be matching the Great Danes’ vaunted full-court press. From there, however, it was all Albany the rest of the first half, which it closed on a 19-2 run.

Binghamton scored on the opening possession of the second half as sophomore guard Jasbriell Swain nailed a jumper. Albany, however, went on a 14-5 run over the next five minutes to take a 42-21 lead with 14:41 left in regulation. Craig and Henry combined for eight points during that spurt.

The Great Danes shoved the game into the win column with a final 13-2 spurt in a span of 3:37 to go up 60-30 with 7:35 left in regulation. Adrienne Jones led the way with five points during that final run.

Senior guards Orla O’Reilly and Andrea Holmes each had a team high eight points for Binghamton, who return home to face New Hampshire on Saturday at 2 p.m.
