women's basketball beats Mansfield 66-49 in exhibition game
nets game-high 24 points, Elofson adds 19 points and 13 rebounds
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Junior point guard Andrea Holmes netted a game-high
24 points and sophomore forward Kara Elofson added 19 points
and 13 rebounds, powering Binghamton to a 66-49 win over Mansfield
in a women's exhibition game on Tuesday night at the Events Center.
The Bearcats now prepare to open up their 2010-11 season on Friday
night at St. Bonaventure at 7 p.m.
Holmes scored 20 of her points in the first half, draining five
three pointers in the process as Binghamton took a 35-25 halftime
advantage. The Bearcats shot an even 50 percent in the first
20 minutes, hitting 14 of their 28 shots, including six of 12
attempts from beyond the three-point arc.
Elofson, meanwhile, had 13 points and 10 rebounds after the break.
Binghamton got the cushion it needed in the opening five minutes
of the second half, going on a 10-0 run to take a commanding
47-25 lead. Freshman guard Jasbriell Swain hit back-to-back three
points during that run. She finished with eight points but tied
Elofson for the game high with 13 rebounds.
"I thought we came out right at the start and played with
a lot of energy," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "I
was pleased with how we played tonight."
Mallory Moore led Mansfield with 17 points and 10 rebounds.
