Box Score

WEST HARTFORD, Conn.-- Alex Young scored a game-high 25 points leading second-seeded Boston University (17-13) to a 59-44 win over third-seeded Binghamton (19-12) in an America East women's basketball semifinal matchup on Sunday afternoon at the Chase Family Arena. The game was televised regionally by Time Warner Cable in the Binghamton area.

Playing without first-team all-conference point guard Andrea Holmes and with senior guard Jackie Ward, Binghamton led for most of the first half and the first part of the final 20 minutes. In the end, however, the Boston bench and Young's hot hand prevailed.

"We played as hard as we could for as long as we could but give Boston credit," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "Alex Young had an unbelievable day shooting."

Played in her final college game, Ward netted a team-high 17 points. Junior forward Viive Rebane finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds. For the tournament, she finished with an average of 18.0 points and 8.5 rebounds per contest.

Ward drained three three-point shots and Rebane scored 10 of her points in the opening 20 minutes as Binghamton took a 22-20 lead at the half. With the score deadlocked a 28-28 six minutes into the second half, however, Young took over the game. She scored 18 of the Terriers' next 24 points, including four three pointers as Boston built a 52-37 lead with 2:52 left to play.

Binghamton will return four starters next season as well as 11 letterwinners next season.
