Bearcats unable to overcome early slump, lose to Army 74-62

Box Score

WEST POINT, N.Y. -Five minutes proved to be the difference as the Army Black Knights (6-1) went on a 17-0 first-half run to defeat visiting Binghamton (4-3) 74-62 in women's basketball action on Wednesday night at Christl Arena. The loss was the second straight for the Bearcats.

Binghamton came out smoking, jumping out to a 12-3 lead just five minutes into the contest. It was then, however, that Army went on the 17-0 run over a span of 5:12 to take a 20-12 advantage midway through the first half.

The rest of the night would see Binghamton playing catchup. Despite getting within two points early in the second half (37-35) and five points late in the second half (66-61), the Bearcats would eventually fall to a Black Knight team that shot 59 percent for the game (24-for-41) and went 7-of-11 from beyond the three-point arc.

"I give Army a lot of credit," head coach Rich Conover said. "But to go in the slump we did was inexcusable. We had to fight back the rest of the game and they had an answer for every run we made."

Sophomore guard Jen Blues (Overland Park, Kan./ Blue Valley North) scored a career-high 23 points and sophomore guard Rachel Laws (Wyncote, Pa./ Cheltenham) had another strong game for Binghamton with 13 points.

Katie MacFarlane led the Black Knights with 21 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Binghamton returns home to face La Salle on Sunday at 1 p.m.
