basketball wins 66-41 at Colgate
Junior guard Muffy
Sadler scored a game-high and career-high 18 points, leading Binghamton
(1-1) to a 66-41 victory at Colgate (0-3) in a non-conference
women's basketball game on Wednesday evening at Cotterell Court.
It marked the first career Division I triumph for first-year
Bearcat head coach Nicole Scholl.
"This was good win for our team to get," Scholl said.
"It gives them a taste of what it is like to win heading
into our home opener on Friday."
The Bearcats scored on their first five possessions to open up
a 12-2 lead just 3:30 into the game. The Radiers cut the lead
to 12-11 at the 13:00 minute mark before Binghamton responded
with an 11-0 run to go up 23-11 midway through the first half.
From there, the Bearcats went up 38-22 at the half.
In the second half, Binghamton never led by fewer than 20 points.
All 12 players saw playing time in each half.
Senior center Laura
Franceski added 10 points while freshman foward Viive
Rebane and junior guard Erica Carter each chipped in nine
Peterson had eight points and a team-high seven rebounds.
No one from Colgate reached double figures in scoring.
Binghamton hosts Portland State in its home opener on Friday
at 7 p.m. at the Events Center.
