Bearcats fall at home to Vermont

VESTAL, N.Y.  Kristina White scored a game-high 19 points, leading Vermont (6-14, 3-4 AE) to a 65-57 win over Binghamton (4-16, 1-6 AE) in an America East womens basketball game on Sunday afternoon at the Events Center. The loss marked the fifth straight setback for the Bearcats.

White drained five three-point field goals, four of which came in the second half. The Catamounts had a double-digit lead for much of the first half but had to rely on Whites heroics to hold off the Bearcats over the final 20 minutes.

It was frustrating today, head coach Nicole Scholl said. We got outworked in the first half and even though we played better in the second half, (White) hit some big shots for them.

The first half belonged to Whites teammate, Niki Taylor, who scored 10 of her 14 points during that stretch. The Catamounts shot 44 percent (15-of-34) and took a 34-22 lead at the break.

Binghamton pulled to within 39-34 in the first 3:28 of the second half. The Bearcats got to the free throw line 10 times during that span and made nine of their attempts.

White halted the comeback by draining back-to-back three-point field goals, stretching the lead to 45-34. Her next three pointer gave Vermont a 58-43 lead with 9:58 left in regulation.

The Bearcats pulled to within 62-53 on a three-point play by sophomore Kandace Newry with 3:45 left to go. White, however, sank her final three-point field goal with 2:58 left, giving the Catamounts a 65-53 advantage.

Sophomore forward Morgan Murphy led the Bearcats with 14 points and six rebounds. She has now reached double figures in two of the last three games. Senior guard Vaneeshia Paulk finished with 13 points.

Kaylea Britton added 10 points for the Catamounts.

Vermont outrebounded Binghamton 44-30 for the game and finished with 16 offensive rebounds. The Catamounts also held an 18-4 edge in second-chance points.

Binghamton hosts UMass Lowell Thursday at 7 p.m.

NOTE: White and Murphy were the America East Players of the Game.
