BU women's basketball rallies to beat Bucknell

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.--Senior center Sarah Cartmill (Ithaca, N.Y.) fired the game-winning shot with seven second left, as the Binghamton women’s basketball team (7-2) rallied to beat Bucknell (3-4) 58-57 before 710 fans at West Gym. The win was Bearcats’ sixth in the last seven games.

It appeared as if the Bearcats would cruise to the win, as they opened up a 17-6 lead with 14:14 left in the first half. The Bison, however, would rally to trim the lead to 31-23 at the half.

When the Bearcats jumped out to a 45-33 lead with 12:48 remaining in the second half, it appeared the outcome was all but decided. The Bison, however, refused to go away and tied the score up at 53-53 with 3:40 remaining. That would set up a furious final three minutes of action.

Katie Franks drilled a three pointer to give Bucknell its first lead of the game, 56-54 with 1:49 to go. Kate Townley made two free throws at the other end, tying the score at 56-56 with 57 seconds to go. Molly Creamer hit one of two free throws with 31 seconds to go. That set up the stage for Cartmill’s heroics.

Binghamton moved the ball up the court as Brooke Kelly took the ball along the left end line. She then passed the ball to Cartmill under the basket. Cartmill, who finished the game with 16 points, drilled home her most important points with seven seconds remaining. Bucknell’s final attempt at victory was denied when Creamer’s desperation shot at the buzzer went off the backboard.

Truncale finished with a game-high 17 points and 13 rebounds. Kelly added nine points.
