Binghamton women's basketball loses 81-63 at Boston Univ.

Box score

BOSTON, Mass.-- Senior guard Christine Kinneary scored 22 points and senior forward Jesyka Burks-Wiley added 22 points and 11 rebounds, powering Boston University (9-6, 3-0 AE) to a 81-63 win over Binghamton (6-10, 1-2 AE) in an America East Conference women's basketball game on Wednesday afternoon at Agganis Arena. It marked the fifth consecutive season that the Terriers have defeated the Bearcats on their home floor.

Kinneary scored 18 of her points in the first half as the Terriers raced out to a 49-33 lead at the break. The Bearcats went up 13-12 at the 12:56 mark but a 15-5 run by Boston made the score 27-18 with 8:45 left to go. From there, the Terriers extended the lead to 42-22 with 2:43 remaining.

Boston shot 50 percent in the first half (15-for-30) and went 15-of-18 from the free throw line.

In the second half, play slowed down and Binghamton got to within 66-52 at the seven-minute mark. Boston, however, reeled off the next nine points points to put the game out of reach.

Junior guard Erica Carter had a team-high 12 points while sophomore guard Jackie Ward added 10 points.

Binghamton returns home on Sunday for a 2 p.m. game against Stony Brook. The game will be televised locally by Time Warner Sports (Channel 23).
