BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – Trailing by one point with two seconds remaining the Binghamton women could not complete the comeback losing to New Hampshire, 54-53. Annie Ramil was unable to get a shot off at the buzzer and no foul was called on the play.
Binghamton put up 71 points in a win against New Hampshire the first time these two teams met but the Wildcats held the Bearcat offense to just 54 points on Saturday.
Rebecca Carmody had twelve points and ten rebounds in the loss. The senior is now eight points shy of 1000 for her career.
“Unfortunately we came up short,” said Binghamton head coach Bethann Shapiro Ord. “You can’t wait until the end because you never know what will happen, we could have got a call that went our way like say they would have called a foul and Annie is shooting free throws you know and it is a different story but you cant leave it in anybody elses hands but yourself.
Final score: Binghamton (9-15, 4-7) – 53, New Hampshire (6-18, 3-8) – 54
The game was Binghamton’s annual play 4 kay game in the honor of former NC state coach Kay Yow and cancer awareness. At halftime, head coach Bethann Shapiro Ord honored cancer survivors at half court and players from both Binghamton and New Hampshire wore pink from everything to their shoes, socks, and headbands.
“For all the survivors and people fighting right now it is a special day where we are trying to celebrate the people who have fought and are fighting and there are so many people who have been touched by cancer,” said Ord.
Binghamton is next in action at UMBC on Wednesday. Tip off is set for 7 p.m.
