Binghamton women's basketball loses 70-65 to Hartford

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Junior Mary Silva drained three three-pointers in the final 4:09, leading Hartford (13-3, 4-0 AE) to a 70-65 come-from-behind win over Binghamton (5-12, 1-3 AE) in an America East women's basketball game on Saturday afternoon at the Events Center. The game, which was televised regionally, marked the 11th straight time the Hawks have beaten the Bearcats.

Hartford trailed 52-50 with 4:09 left in regulation when Silva drained a three pointer, giving them the lead for good. Binghamton failed to score on its next possession and Silva converted another three pointer with 3:10 left to go. Senior guard Darrryl Peterson cut the deficit to 56-54 with 2:54 remaining but Silva answered with her third straight three pointer, giving the Hawks the cushion they'd need down the stretch.

"This is a tough loss for us," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "I thought we played hard but Hartford hit the shots they had to at the end of the game."

Sophomore point guard Andrea Holmes led Binghamton with 22 points, marking the seventh time in her career that she has reached the 20-point mark in scoring. Senior guard Erica Carter added 19 points while junior guard Jackie Ward chipped in 11 points. Sophomore forward Viive Rebane grabbed a game-high nine rebounds.

Carter scored 13 of her points in the first half as Binghamton took a 32-30 lead at the break. From there, the lead swung back and fourth until the Bearcats took a 52-48 lead with 5:59 left in the second half. In the ensuing five minutes, however, Silva's heroics led a 14-2 Hartford run that sealed the game.

Binghamton heads to UMBC on Monday for a 7 p.m. game.

NOTES: Silva and Holmes were the America East Players of the Game ... Carter now has 976 career points. She needs 24 points to become the 12th player in program history to reach the 1,000 point mark for her career.
