Immediate Release: November 27, 2004
Junior guard Rachel Laws (Wyncote, Pa.) scored 13 of her game-high 21 points in the first half as BU built a 19-point bulge at the break. Laws led four players in double figures as the Bearcats exploded for their largest offensive output since a win over Maine on January 19, 2002. The 25-point margin of victory also tied the program's largest in its four-year Division I tenure.
Laws connected on 6-of-14 from the floor and chipped in eight rebounds, four steals and three assists.
Junior guard Jen Blues (Overland, Kan.) was perfect from the floor in her 23 minutes, hitting 4-of-4 from three-point range and making both free throw attempts for 14 points. Sophomore guard Rebecka Lindgren (Oskarshamn, Sweden) had a strong all-around game with a career-high 14 points, six rebounds and two assists. Junior forward Jen Haubrich (Bow, N.H.) also put up her career high in points with 10, and chipped in seven rebounds.
"It was a good win against a very good Marshall team," head coach Rich Conover said. "We had to play consistent and we did. We had a good week of practice after North Texas (a 62-44 loss) and we were focused tonight."
The Bearcats exploded out of the gate, scoring 22 of the game's first 27 points, including seven from Laws and six from senior center Kristin Hibler (Hutchinson, Kan.), who wound up with eight points. Binghamton converted 61% from the floor in the opening period (17-of-28) and the Thundering Herd never closed to closer than 17 points in the second half. The score could've been even more lopsided if Binghamton had converted its free throws. The Bearcats missed 15 foul shots (63.4%) and nearly shot better from the field than from the charity stripe.
