Watkins now second in scoring in BU program history

Posted: Updated:

VESTAL (WBNG) - Imani Watkins poured in 21 points in Binghamton's loss to Stony Brook on Thursday night to move into second place all-time in scoring in Binghamton women's basketball program history. The senior guard passed Sarah Carmtill for second place and now has 1,849 career points. 

The High Point, North Carolina native also moved into 12th all-time in scoring in America East history. 

After Thursday, Watkins is 175 points behind Bess Greenberg for the program scoring record at Binghamton. 

"Just means that I've been hungry for three and a half years," said Binghamton senior guard Imani Watkins. "Staying consistent and doing anything I can to help my team win."

"Imani came into the season with three goals," said Binghamton head coach Linda Cimino. "To win a championship and get into the NCAA Tournament, to break the all-time scoring record, and to be the player of the year. She's hopefully on target to do all three." 

Imani and the Bearcats are back on the court Sunday at UMass Lowell.
