Watkins and James reflect on historic senior day

Posted: Updated:

VESTAL (WBNG) -- Binghamton women's basketball seniors Imani Watkins and Alyssa James reached personal milestones in Saturday's 14-point victory over UMass Lowell.

Watkins scored five points to become the program's new all-time leading scorer.

"Thank you that it's over," said Watkins afterwards. "You have goals that you want to meet, but the anticipation and just the pressure, once it's gone it's gone, and we can move past this. The record is broken, it's there, we can move past it, and we have bigger goals in mind." 

James grabbed her 1,000th career collegiate rebound.

"It's really great to reach that milestone with Coach Cimino on my side, and with my teammates on my side, and I'm glad that I did it this game with my family here," James said on her accomplishment.

The two talented seniors have helped Binghamton win eight of its last nine games and move within one game of first place in the America East standings with just one week left in the regular season.
