Binghamton women's basketball beats Maine 66-46

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.- Junior Darryll Peterson scored game-high 17 points, leading Binghamton (11-15, 6-7 AE) to a 66-46 win over Maine (4-22, 2-11 AE) on Saturday afternoon at the Events Center. The win snapped the Bearcats' three-game losing skid.

Peterson tied her career high in points and with nine rebounds, just missing her first career double-double. She also finished with four steals. Senior center
Laura Franceski added 12 points and a game-high five blocks.

Up by just 19-17 with 3:43 left in the first half, the Bearcats went on a 7-0 run to go up 26-17 with 1:01 remaining before the break. In the second half, Binghamton came out smoking, going up 36-19 in the opening 4:17. Peterson had eight of her points during that run.

Maine pulled to within 37-29 at the 12:01 mark and kept the deficit at around 10 points for the next eight minutes. The backbreaking spurt for the Bearcats, however, was an 11-0 blitz in a span of 2:19 which made the score 66-43 with 1:14 left in regulation.

Freshman guard
Andrea Holmes was held scoreless, attempting just seven shots, but she still played a significant factor in the game. She dished out six assists, grabbed five rebounds and recorded a career-high six steals.

Maine was led by Tanna Ross, who scored a team-high 12 points.

Binghamton hosts UMBC next Saturday at 2 p.m. in its regular season home finale.

NOTES: Peterson and Ross were the America East Players of the Game ... Holmes' six steals is the highest total turned in by a Binghamton player since Jen Blues also had six steals against New Hampshire on Jan. 7, 2006 ... Franceski now has 12 career games with five or more blocks. With 211 career blocks she is 25 rejections shy of Leah Truncale (1998-02), who holds the school record with 236.
