Bearcats fall on the road

DURHAM, N.H.  Elizabeth Belanger scored a team-high 16 points and Kristen Anderson finished with 14 points, leading New Hampshire (13-8, 7-1 AE) to a 72-53 win over Binghamton (4-18, 1-8 AE) in an America East womens basketball game on Sunday afternoon at Lundholm Gymnasium. The game marked the first of three straight road games for the Wildcats.

The Wildcats, who trailed 30-29 at the half, ended up shooting 50 percent for the game. Over the final 20 minutes alone, they were 16-of-27 (59 percent) from the field as well as 4-for-8 (50 percent) from beyond the three-point arc.
I thought we played well in the first half but give New Hampshire credit for how they came back, head coach Nicole Scholl said. We just werent able to stop them in the second half.

In the first 20 minutes, however, junior forward Sherae Swinson was difference in the game. She led all scorers with 12 points and added seven rebounds in leading the Bearcats to the one-point lead.

Sophomore forward Morgan Murphy, who finished with a game-high 19 points, made a three-point play in the opening minute of the second half, stretching the lead to 33-29. From there, however, New Hampshire took control of the game with a 22-6 run to go up 51-39 with 11:23 left in regulation. Belanger had five of her points during that stretch.

Binghamton got to within 55-45 on a three-point field goal by senior guard Stephanie Jensen with 8:20 left in the second half. The Wildcats, however, answered with a 14-2 run to go up 69-47 with 2:43 left to go. Belanger netted another four points during that span.

Corrine Coia added 14 points in the winning effort while Kelsey Hogan chipped in 10 points.

Swinson finished with 17 points for Binghamton.

Murphy has now reached double figures in four of the past five games. She has averaged 20.5 points and 8.5 rebounds the past two games.

Binghamton heads to Stony Brook on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. game.
