BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - Thursday night Binghamton guard Imani Watkins became the second player in program history to surpass the 2,000 career points milestone. Watkins made a mid-range jumper becoming the tenth player in America East women's basketball history to reach 2,000.
The senior is in the midst of her best season with the Bearcats. Watkins leads the conference in scoring with more than 21 points per game. She's scored 120 more points than anyone else in the America East this season. After the game Thursday, Watkins talked about reaching the prestigious milestone.
"It's just special," said Binghamton senior guard Imani Watkins. "You're leaving your mark, you're making history and that's something no body can ever take from you. It's just a testament to my coaches and my teammates."
Watkins is now 19 points away from breaking the all-time program record for points scored (2,024), set by Bess Greenberg in 2001. She could do it in BU's next game Wednesday night at home against Vermont.
