Binghamton women's basketball wins 66-41 at Colgate

Box Score

HAMILTON, N.Y.- 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 points. Junior guard Darryll 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.
