Binghamton scores last 11, tops Sacred Heart 51-48
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — J.C. Show scored 21 points, including three 3-pointers to help Binghamton score the last 11 points of the game for a 51-48 win over Sacred Heart on Sunday, the Bearcats’ seventh straight win.
The Pioneers didn’t score again after a jumper by E.J. Anosike gave them a 48-40 lead with 9:16 to play. Sacred Heart missed its last 13 shots, including four on its first possession with an eight-point lead, two free throws and had a turnover.
The Bearcats (8-4) didn’t exactly light it up, going 4 for 10 with two turnovers and missing the front end of a potentially-clinching one-and-one with 10 seconds left. Show hit 3s at 6:37 and 5:27 before a tip-in by Willie Rodriguez tied it at 48 with 3:02 to play. Show hit the game winner at 1:36.
Show was the only double-figure scored for the Bearcats, who have their longest winning streak since winning 11 straight nine seasons ago.
Joseph Lopez and Sean Hoehn had 11 each for the Pioneers (5-7), who scored just 15 points in the second half after building a 33-23 lead at the break.
