Box score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Freshman point guard Andrea Holmes tallied 11 points, eight assists and eight rebounds, joining three other Bearcats in double figure scoring as Binghamton overcame the University of New Hampshire 76-59, on Wednesday evening at the Events Center.

Junior guard Muffy Sadler and freshman Viive Rebane netted 12 points a piece, and senior Laura Franceski added 11 to join Holmes as four Bearcats scored in double figures for the fourth time this season.

New Hamphire was led by junior forward Candace Williams, who scored a 19 points. Junior guard Amy Simpson added 17 points, and was selected as an America East Player of the Game.

New Hampshire broke into the scoring column first with a foul shot 1:47 into the game, but from then on it was all Binghamton. The Bearcats went on a 20-1 tear to take a comfortable lead 20-2 with 11:39 remaining in the first half, and cruised to a 39-25 halftime lead.

The Wildcats clawed back early in the second half to cut the lead to 11 and give the Bearcats a 41-30 advantage with 19:08 on the clock. However, Binghamton answered with a 14-8 run to go up 55-38 with 10:30 remaining, and the Bearcats would go on to lead by as many as 23 in the second half.

"It was a great team win tonight, we established ourselves on both sides of the court and had a great transition offense," Coach Scholl remarked after the game. "Every win is a crucial win in the conference. Just a great performance by Andrea tonight. She has a lot of the intangibles."

Holmes led the Bearcats in minutes, logging 38 and was selected as an America East Player of the Game.

Binghamton was boosted by strong shooting in the second half, shooting 83.3 percent from three and ended the night 10-19 for 52.6 percent.

Binghamton is in action next this Saturday when the Bearcats travel to Maine. Tip-off is at noon.
