Binghamton women's basketball loses regular season finale at Vermont 72-57
Bearcats enter America East Championship as No. 5 seed
BURLINGTON, VT.--Senior forward Lani Boardman netted a game-high 20 points, leading Vermont (13-14, 9-9 AE) to a 72-57 win over Binghamton (10-17, 9-9 AE) in an America East Conference women's basketball game on Saturday afternoon at Patrick Gymnasium. The game marked the regular-season finale for both teams, who will meet again in the quarterfinal round of the America East Championship on Thursday at noon. The Catamounts are the No. 4 seed while the Bearcats are the No. 5 seed.
The host Catamounts wasted little time taking control of the game, jumping out to a 16-6 lead in the opening 6:22 of play. They then powered their way to a 38-21 lead at the break by shooting 51.7 percent during the first 20 minutes of action.
In the second half, the Catamounts maintained a double-didgit lead and at one point, led by as many as 21 points (42-21). Although Binghamton outscored Vermont 36-34 over the final 20 minutes, it could not overcome the decisive first half deficit.
Junior forward Jen Haubrich (Bow, N.H.) had a team-high 16 points and nine rebounds. Junior guard Jen Blues (Overland Park, Kan.) added 10 points.
NOTES: Binghamton and Vermont will meet for the second time in the America East Championship. The Catamounts won a 69-58 decision in the 2003 quarterfinals.
