Boston rallies to defeat Binghamton women's basketball 72-70
BOSTON, Mass.-- Senior guard Erica Kovach scored the game-winning layup with seven seconds remaining, leading Boston (15-14, 7-9 AE) to a 72-70 win over Binghamton (10-18, 6-9 AE) in an America East Conference women's basketball game on Wednesday night at Case Gym. The loss drops the Bearcats into a tie for fifth place in the conference with one regular season game left to play.
Binghamton appeared to be in control of the game, as they led 60-50 with just under eight minutes to go in regulation. From there, however, the Terriers went on a 18-0 run to pull ahead 68-60 with 2:48 left to go.
Undaunted, Binghamton came back to tie the game at 70-70 with 31 seconds remaining in regulation on a pair of free throws by junior forward Laine Kurpniece (Riga, Latvia). That set the stage for Kovach, who converted her game winner from just under the right side of the basket.
Freshman guard Erica Carter (Naperville, Ill.), starting in place of injured senior guard Rebecka Lindgren (Oskarshamn, Sweden), led the Bearcats with a career-high 18 points. Kurpniece posted her second consecutive double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Junior forward Brianna Thompson (Chehalis, Wash.) scored 12 points and junior guard Laura Sario (Espoo, Finland) chipped in 12 points.
For Boston, sophomore guard Amarchi UmezEroni led all scorers with a career-high 22 points.
Binghamton closes out the regular season at home on Saturday against New Hampshire at 1 p.m.
NOTES: Carter and UmexEroni were the America East Conference Players of Game.
