Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
Talk about a major bargaining chip.
Yesterday the coach of the BU men's team get an extension and a pay raise to 170-thousand a year.
And they've lost their last 8 games in a row.
So how to you reward the women's coach that has won 7 of the last 8?
Besides that the Bearcats are undefeated at home this season, a streak they'll try to extend on Saturday against Vermont.
They know what to expect, after beating the Catamounts in overtime in their first meeting. But they say things can be even tougher the second time around.
Viive Rebane says, " Me personally I like second round play really better because I know all the players and they know all the offenses, so it's all about making plays and the better athletes succeed better in the second round."
Coach Nicole Scholl says, " You get scouted and more teams know what your strengths and weaknesses are. You really have to dig in and it becomes more about details. For us right now I think defensively and rebounding we're playing really well and I think that's really pulled us through in a lot of games."
BU is in second place in the America East.
They host Vermont Saturday at 2:00
