Lady Bearcats confident they can beat anybody

Don't call it over-confidence, but the Binghamton Bearcats are pleased with their quality of play lately. They've won four of their last six including three of those on the road. The most recent game was a loss to UMBC on the road but after watching back the game tape the next day, they were upset with the quality of play feeling that that was a game they should have won.

BU's next game is at home against Maine on Saturday. The Black Bears are 15-7 overall, 6-1 in conference and in second place behind Albany. Despite the odds, the
Bearcats are confident in their chances after playing the Black Bears close in the conference tournament last year.

"I preach all season long 'one possession.' Every possession counts in a game and if we can keep the game within one or two possessions we can beat anybody and that's all you want," said Head Coach Linda Cimino. "You want a shot to win at the buzzer, you want a shot to be right there when the game is on the line and I think right now the team is playing in such a way that they really believe if we do what we're supposed to do, we're just as good as anybody."

Tip-off at the Events Center is at 2:00. Saturday's game is part of BU's #Play4Kay fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness.
