Box Score 

The Princeton women’s basketball team extended its winning streak to two behind its 75-49 victory over Binghamton Wednesday evening on the road, marking an opponent low in points conceded for the Tigers who improve to 5-4 with the win.

The midweek contest concludes Princeton’s four-game road swing and sends the Tigers home for a pair of games before the holiday break, beginning on Sunday with Delaware at 2 p.m.

Blake Dietrick scored a game-high 21 points, reaching the double digit scoring mark for the sixth time this season. She went 8-for-13 from the field, adding three triples, four assists and was tied for the team’s leader in rebounds with six.

Princeton missed on its first four attempts and Binghamton jumped out to a 7-3 advantage behind five uncontested points, before a pair of triples by Michelle Miller was the lift the Tigers were searching for.

Miller had nine first half points, all treys, and finished with 11. She also grabbed three rebounds and dished three assists.

A Dietrick layin at 13:25 tied things up 10-10 and it was all Princeton for the remainder of the game. The Tigers carried their momentum to an 18-6 run and a double figure lead, 28-16, behind freshman Taylor Brown’s first career three-pointer at 6:45.

Princeton distributed the ball well over opening half after overcoming its early fluxes, tallying 14 dishes en route to a 42-27 advantage at the break.

The Tigers managed their double figure lead comfortably over the second half, expanding it to 20, 61-41 at 9:03, on a Vanessa Smith three.

Princeton shot nearly 50 percent, going 49.2 percent (31-for-63) from the field, while limiting Binghamton to 34.7 percent (17-for-49). The Tigers held a 41-29 rebounding margin, tallying 14 second chance points and finished with 23 assists.

Alex Wheatley was just shy of reaching the double figure scoring mark, tallying nine points, while Amanda Berntsen finished with six points and a six rebounds, all coming in the first half. Kristen Helmstetter added six points of her own and a season and game-high five assists.

In a game where the stats were fairly evenly distributed, Princeton also forced 16 Bearcat turnovers and converted it into 23 points.
