women's basketball wins 75-59 at Bryant
The 35 points by Carter ties for the fourth-best in school history. It is also the highest total since Sarah Cartmill had 35 points against Hartford on Feb. 17, 2002. In addition, Carter's nine three pointers is a school record.
Carter had 27 points in the first half as the Bearcats raced out to a 53-31 lead. The 53 points scored by Binghamton is the highest one-half total since the program moved up to the NCAA Division I level in 2001. The old mark was 51 vs. Northeastern (in the second half) on Jan. 29, 2005.
Bryant led 14-8 three minutes into the game before the Bearcats went on a 36-8 tear to take a 44-22 lead with 4:37 left in the first half. By that time, Carter already had 25 points.
The host Bulldogs got to within 60-47 at the 9:32 mark of the second half but the Bearcats maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the way.
Junior guard Jackie
Ward finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and
five steals. The 10 rebounds is a career high and represents
the first double-double in her career. Ward has now reached double
figures in scoring a team-best six straight games.
Binghamton's next game against
Villanova on Friday will be played at 5 p.m. instead of the originially
scheduled time at 7 p.m.
