Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

The path through the America East tournament got more difficult for the B.U. women's basketball team.
Leading scorer Andrea Holmes is out for the season after tearing the ACL in her left knee.

The injury happened with about 9 minutes to go in the Bearcats 59-53 win over Boston.

Holmes had been averaging 14.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
In a university release, Holmes says she is confident in the players who will be on the floor for the rest of the year, especially with way they rallied against Boston the other night without her.

B.U. ends the season with a trip to Stony Brook on Sunday.
The America East conference tournament starts next Thursday, March 3rd in Hartford.
