Binghamton women's basketball loses 68-56 to unbeaten Duquesne

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.- Visiting Duquesne (5-0) nailed nine three-point shots en route to defeating Binghamton (2-3) 68-56 in a non-conference women's basketball game on Tuesday night at the Events Center. The game marked the third of a season-high four game homestand for the Bearcats.

The Dukes had three players finish in double figures with senior guard Kristi Little leading the way with 13 points. Freshman forward Alex Gensler netted 12 points while junior guard Rachel Frederick turned in a 10-point, 11-rebound effort. Together, the trio of players accounted for five of the Dukes' three pointers.

It was junior guard
Muffy Sadler, however, who finished with the game high of 18 points. In the process, she tied her career high, which she established last week at Colgate. Freshman guard Andrea Holmes chipped in 10 points.

"Duquesne is a very good team," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "We came out and stuck to our game plan tonight but they shot the ball very well."

Duquesne established control of the game early, jumping out to a 19-9 lead with 9:48 left in the first half. From there, the Dukes kept rolling and took a 38-21 lead at the break.

The Bearcats pulled to within 47-36 with 13:34 left in the second half but back-to-back three pointers by junior guard Keri Pryor and Frederick launched a 9-2 Duquesne run that opened the lead to 56-38 with 8:25 remaining.

Sadler hit a pair of her three pointers in the final 2:35 as the Bearcats clawed to within 12 points as time expired.

The Bearcats struggled from the field and in the paint against Duquesne. The Bearcats shot just 27 percent while the Dukes shot 44 percent, including 9-of-17 from beyond the three-point arc. Duquesne also won the rebound battle 43-27.

Binghamton wraps up its homestand against Canisius on Saturday at 6 p.m.
