Binghamton women's basketball loses 62-51 at Stony Brook

Box score

STONY BROOK, N.Y.-- Junior guards Kirsten Jeter and Kairsten Nunn each scored 14 points, leading Stony Brook (6-16, 4-6 AE) to a 62-51 win over Binghamton (10-14, 5-6 AE) in an America East women's basketball game on Saturday afternoon at Pritchard Gym. The loss was the second straight setback for the Bearcats.

"Stony Brook did a good job of making us play faster than we are used to," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "We had a lot of open looks that were ours for the taking but we just did not make our shots today."

Jeter scored 12 of her points in the first half as the Seawolves took a 34-23 lead at the break. The Bearcats got to within 42-38 with 12:08 left in regulation but the Seawolves scored the next five points to go up 47-38 with 9:11 left. Binghamton got no closer than seven points the rest of the way.

Freshman forward Viive Rebane had a game-high 15 points and a career-high 15 rebounds. It marked her first career double-double and as well as the most rebounds turned in by a Binghamton player since Leah Truncale grabbed 19 rebounds against Colgate on Dec. 21, 2001.

Freshman point guard Andrea Holmes added 13 points, a career-high nine rebounds, four assists and two steals. The Bearcats were once again missing senior center Laura Franceski and junior guard Muffy Sadler, both of whom were out with injuries.

Binghamton hosts first-place Boston on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

NOTE: Rebane's 15 rebounds is the third-highest total turned in by a Binghamton player since the program moved up to the Division I level prior to the 2001-02 season. Truncale's 19 rebounds represents Binghamton's Division I era game record.
