VESTAL, N.Y.- Junior forward Laine Kurpniece (Riga, Lativa) scored a game-high and season-high 20 points, leading Binghamton (7-13, 3-4 AE) to a 70-64 victory over Boston (10-10, 2-5 AE) in an America East Conference women's basketball game on Saturday afternoon at the Events Center. It was the Bearcats' second triumph in the past three games.

Trailing 50-45 with 5:55 to go in the second half, the Bearcats closed the game on a 25-14 run. Senior guards Shea Kenny (Miller Place, N.Y.) and Rebecka Lindgren (Oskarshamn, Sweden) played key roles in the comeback shooting a combined 10-for-10 from the free throw line in the final minute of the game.

The Bearcats had three players in double figures. For Kurpniece, it was her sixth career 20-point game, while Kenny scored a season-high 13 points and junior guard Laura Sario (Espoo, Finland) added 10 points.

Leading the way for the Terriers was freshman forward Aly Hinton who scored 12 points. Junior guard Cherri Raffo and sophomore guard Amarachi Umez-Eronini each added 11 points.

Despite only connecting on four field goals over the last 11:28 of regulation, Binghamton won this game at the free throw line, shooting 25-of-28 for the game (89%).

The Bearcats start a three-game road trip, beginning at Stony Brook on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Game Notes: Kurpniece was named the Player of the Game for Binghamton while Aly Hinton collected the honor for Boston ... Kenny is now 20-for-20 from the free throw line this season ... the 70 points is Binghamton's second-highest total this season.
