Junior point guard Andrea Holmes scored a game-high 24 points and added five assists, powering Binghamton (9-6, 2-0 AE) to a 72-60 win over New Hampshire (3-12, 0-3 AE) in an America East women’s basketball game on Jan. 9 at the Events Center.
The Bearcats, who have now won three games in a row, improve to a perfect 6-0 at home this season.
Holmes was one of five Binghamton players to reach double figures in scoring. Junior Orla O’Reilly had 13 points and five rebounds; junior forward Viive Rebane finished with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists and four steals; senior guard Jackie Ward chipped in 11 points while sophomore forward Kara Elofson had 10 points and a team-high nine rebounds.
“New Hampshire is a good team and they came out and gave us problems in the first half,” head coach Nicole Scholl said. “I was proud of the way we were able to adjust, especially in the second half.”
Down 17-11 midway through the first half, the Bearcats went on a 13-1 run to take a 24-18 lead with 2:25 left before the break. The Wildcats clawed to within 25-23 at the half.
Up 59-53 with 3:14 left in regulation, Holmes led a 12-2 run which gave Binghamton a 70-55 lead with 52 seconds remaining. She had six points during that span, going 4-for-4 from the free throw line in the process.
Denise Beliveau, Cari Reed and Jill McDonald each finished with 14 points for the Wildcats.
