Binghamton women's basketball loses 49-46 at Canisius

Box Score

BUFFALO, N.Y.-- Brittnee Russell sank four free throws in the final 44 second as Canisius (3-2) rallied past Binghamton (0-4) in a non-conference women's basketball game on Saturday afternoon at the Koessler Athletic Center.

Russell, who finished the game with 20 points, nailed a pair of free throws to put the Golden Griffs up 47-46 with 44 seconds remaining in regulation. The Bearcats missed their ensuing shot and Russell grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 22 seconds remaining. She sank both free throws and Binghamton missed a game-tying three pointer at the buzzer.

After trailing 28-18 at the half, Binghamton came roaring back to tie the game up at 37-37 with 7:08 left in regulation. With 3:13 left, the Bearcats took a 44-43 lead on a jumper by junior guard Jackie Ward. From there, the lead swung back and fourth until Russell stepped up in the final minute of the game.

Ward finished with a team-high 13 points while senior guard Erica Carter added 11 points and six rebounds. Sophomore point guard Andrea Holmes chipped in nine points, a season-high six assists and three rebounds.

Binghamton won the rebounding battle 38-31 but was undone by a season-high 24 turnovers. In addition, while the Bearcats went 8-for-14 at the free throw line, the Golden Griffs made all eight of their attempts.

Binghamton heads to Siena on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. game.
