Box Score

ORONO, Maine - Freshman guard Emily Rousseau, sophomore guard Amanda Tewksbury and sophomore forward Brittany Boser each scored a game-high 15 points, leading Maine (6-15, 3-5) to a 63-50 win over Binghamton (6-14, 4-3 AE) in an America East Conference women's basketball game on Saturday afternoon at Alfond Arena. With the loss, the Bearcats have now dropped three of their past four games.

Binghamton jumped out to 8-2 lead just 3:51 into the game. Maine, however, tied the game at 11-11 just under three minutes later.

The decisive run of the half was an 18-2 Black Bear blitz in a span of 7:07 that put the Bearcats in a 33-17 hole. Rousseau had 10 of her points during that stretch.

In the second half, Binghamton got to within 44-37 at the 9:54 mark on a jumper by junior forward Laura Franceski (Moscow, Pa.). From there, however, Maine regrouped and bolted back to a 57-43 lead with two minutes remaining.

Sophomore guard
Erica Carter (Naperville, Ill.) led Binghamton with 11 points and a career-high six assists. She has now reached double figures in scoring the past three games. Senior center Laine Kurpniece (Riga, Latvia) added 10 points.

Binghamton returns home to face Vermont on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Events Center. The game against the Catamounts will be part of "Girls Night Out," which begins with a 4:30 reception featuring former Binghamton All-American Bess Greenberg.
