Box score

OLEAN, N.Y. -- St. Bonaventure (2-1) ended the first half with an 18-4 run and began the second half with a 20-6 run en route to a 66-40 win over visiting Binghamton (1-2) Friday night from the Reilly Center. The Bonnies led 32-17 at the break and by as many as 33 points in the second half.

Binghamton trailed just 14-13 with 9:22 remaining in the opening period before the Bonnies capitalized on turnovers and missed shots in the decisive run. The Bearcats committed 13 turnovers in the first half and 19 for the entire game.

"For the first 10 minutes we came out real aggressive and played well," interim head coach Mark Macon said. "But their experience showed. We had too many turnovers in the first half and gave up too many offensive rebounds. We hung in there but we were outmanned tonight."

Junior guard Chretien Lukusa scored a team-high 12 points in 39 minutes of action. Junior forward Moussa Camara added nine points.

St. Bonaventure grabbed 16 offensive rebounds and owned a commanding 43-24 advantage on the glass.

Binghamton travels to Cullowhee, N.C. for a three-games-in-three-nights stretch that begins with a game against Duquesne Monday night from the campus of Western Carolina.
