Bearcats struggle in road loss to Hartford

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. Alyssa Reaves and Deanna Mayza each had 12 points, leading Hartford (6-13, 3-3 AE) to a 66-42 win over Binghamton (4-15, 1-5 AE) in an America East womens basketball game on Thursday night at the Chase Family Arena.  The Hawks used a torrid start in the first half to hand the Bearcats their fourth straight setback.

Hartford scored the games first 14 points and took a 27-4 lead with 7:47 left to go in the first half. The Hawks shot 55 percent over the games first 12 minutes (11-20) while the Bearcats made only two of their first 14 field goal attempts.

It was a rough first half for us, head coach Nicole Scholl said. We did not come out and execute well. Give Hartford credit. They got off to a great start tonight.

Binghamton got to within 36-15 at the half but shot only 25 percent (5-of-20) over the first 20 minutes. The Hawks, meanwhile, scored 11 second-chance points as well as 15 points off of Bearcat turnovers.

The second half was a different story with the two teams playing even most of the way. Late in the game, however, the Hawks went on a 9-1 run in a span of 4:07 to go up 63-35 with 3:47 left to go.
Senior guard Stephanie Jensen led the Bearcats with nine points while senior forward Julia Barac finished with eight points. Jensen also added five rebounds, a pair of assists and two steals.

Binghamton returns home to face Vermont on Sunday at 2 p.m.

NOTES: Reaves and Jensen were the America East Players of the Game.
