Kai Moon: The next face of BU women's basketball continues to show she's ready

Posted: Updated:

VESTAL (WBNG) - "We're at our best when (Kai Moon's) scoring," said Binghamton senior guard Imani Watkins. "When she's attacking and being aggressive and getting to the free throw line, that's when we're winning games. I'm on my way out, so she needs to understand and know that she has the ability and is capable on any given night to be in double figures."

High praise from Imani Watkins for her teammate Kai Moon. Watkins will soon be the program's all-time leading scorer, but as she said, she's nearing the end of her Bearcat career. Soon, the face of the program will be Imani's protege Kai Moon. 

Wednesday night while Watkins was chasing history, Moon made a little of her own. The sophomore recorded her first career double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds. She also added seven assists. The 13 rebounds were a career-high and the five-foot-six guard even blocked a shot. It's the not the first block in her career, but a stat she had some fun joking about after the win.

"I've been working on my post skills a lot," said Binghamton sophomore guard Kai Moon. "(I) think my rebounding really showed that tonight. Anyway I can help my team is honestly is great. To out-rebound Alyssa, I did that so feels pretty good. I also have a block on there, so I was nine away from a quadruple-double."

BU women are back inside the Events Center Saturday at 4 p.m. against UMass Lowell. Watkins is three points away from breaking the program's all-time scoring record.
