Big runs get the best of Bearcats

VESTAL, N.Y.  Blake Dietrick poured in a game-high 21 points, leading Princeton (5-4) to a 75-49 win over Binghamton (1-8) in a non-conference womens basketball game on Wednesday night at the Events Center. The shorthanded Bearcats, who only dressed nine players, have now lost five straight.

The Tigers came into the game averaging 75.9 points per contest and proceeded to nail 11 three-point field goals and dish out 23 assists. They shot 49 percent for the game (31-of-63) and turned the ball over just nine times.

Princeton is a good team, head coach Nicole Scholl said. They like to run the ball in transition and their big players get open. It was tough for us tonight missing some players but give (Princeton) credit for how they played.

The two teams traded leads for the opening 10 minutes but the Tigers went on a 20-5 run in a span of 6:12 to go up 35-19 with 4:33 left in the first half. Princeton made three of their three-point field goals during that stretch.

From there, the Tigers went up 42-27 at the break.

Binghamton stayed within 56-41 with 12:14 left in regulation. From there, however, Princeton outscored the Bearcats 19-8 the rest of the way. Dietrick had her final eight points during that stretch.
Senior guard Vaneeshia Paulk paced the Bearcats with a team-best 15 points for the second game in a row. Fellow senior guard Stephanie Jensen drained four three-point field goals to finish with 12 points.

The Bearcats were missing starting sophomore forward Morgan Murphy, who had the flu. Senior forward Julia Barac took her place and finished with a career-high nine points and nine rebounds.
Michelle Miller added 11 points for the Tigers.

Up next for Binghamton is a 1 p.m. game on Saturday at Rider.
