Kate Townley and Jen Blues

Blues, Townley earn all-conference accolades

HARTFORD, CONN.--Junior point guard Kate Townley (St. Paul, Minn./ Cretin Derham Hall) and freshman guard Jen Blues (Overland Park, Kan./ Blue Valley North) have been named to the America East women's basketball all-conference teams. Townley was named to the third team for the second season in a row while Blues becomes the Bearcats' first player ever to make the America East All-Rookie team.

Townley led the conference in assists for the second season in a row, with 5.4 helpers per game. She also averaged a career-high 7.1 points per game and posted a team-high 1.8 steals per game. Her season high of 16 points came in an 80-73 win at Northeastern on Feb. 22.

"Kate's leadership was very important this season with such a young team," associate head coach Rich Conover said. "She is very valuable to our team in many ways."

Blues led the Bearcats in scoring with 11.4 points per game. She reached double figures in scoring 16 times and led the team in scoring 12 times. On Dec. 16, she became the first Binghamton player ever to be named the America East Conference Rookie of the Week. Blues had a career-high 21 points against Morehead State on Nov. 23.

"Jen came in here and was our go-to scoring right away," Conover said. "Even when teams were keying on her, she still came through for us."

Binghamton faces Vermont in the first round of the America East Tournament on Thursday at noon.
