Bearcats lose to Wagner 85-65

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.--The Wagner Seahawks (1-3) put four players in double figures and used nine first-half steals to defeat the Binghamton Bearcats (1-3) in a non-conference game Saturday afternoon at West Gymnasium.

Wagner, which never trailed, jumped out to a 34-12 lead as Binghamton turned the ball over 14 times in the game’s first 14 minutes. The Seahawks took a 45-24 lead into the break and never led by less than nine in the second period.

Binghamton made a run early in the second half, outscoring the Seahawks 26-12 to cut the deficit to 59-50 with 11:16 remaining. However, the Bearcats could get no closer than nine, and Wagner scored the next seven points to put the game away.

Senior guard Kim McGhee (York, Pa.) scored a game-high 21 points for Wagner, and classmate Toni Roker (Baldwin, N.Y.) added 19 as the tandem contributed 40 points on 15-for-21 shooting off the bench. Each drained four three-pointers as the Seahawks made 10-of-19 shots from long range. Freshman forward Vanessa Wyffels (Portland, Ore.) added 12 points and junior forward Carrie Walker (Gibsonia, Pa.) nearly had a “triple-double” with 13 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds.

Freshman guard Jen Blues (Overland Park, Kan.) scored 19 points, but was the lone Bearcat in double figures. She poured in 13 points in a 2:59 span early in the second half, and wound up shooting 9-of-12 for the game. Junior guard Kate Townley (St. Paul, Minn.) added seven points, eight rebounds and six assists, and five players had at least seven points.

Binghamton maintained a 37-33 rebounding edge--including 18 offensive rebounds--but were ultimately done in by 57 percent shooting from the Seahawks.

The Bearcats return to action on the road against Columbia Monday night at 7 p.m. The game is the first of five straight that BU will play away from home.

NOTES: Wagner’s 85 points were the most allowed by Bingahmton since an 85-74 loss to Minnesota on November 18, 2000 ... The 20-point deficit was the largest margin of defeat since a 71-51 loss to Vermont on Feb. 13, 2002 ... The loss was only the third non-conference regular season loss at home since the beginning of the 1994-95 season ... BU is 87-10 overall at home in that span.
