VESTAL (WBNG) – There’s plenty of optimism surrounding the BU women’s basketball program. The Bearcats won ten more games in 2015-16 than the team did the year before and BU advanced to the America East Conference semifinals for the first time since 2012. Binghamton did it all without the 2015 America East Rookie of the Year.
Jasmine Sina missed all of the 2015-16 season with a torn ACL but she is back at full strength as the Bearcats prepare for the upcoming season.

As a freshman, Sina led the team in scoring, minutes played and three pointers. Now, Sina is a redshirt sophomore and she says she learned a lot from watching last season.
“Last year being on the sidelines, I’ve never had that experience before,” said Sina. “It really allowed me to have a better IQ this year playing on the floor and allowed me to see the floor better. I think being a coach on the sidelines has allowed me to be a better coach on the floor and be a better leader.”
Despite missing all of last season, Sina has been named a captain for the Bearcats. Binghamton’s first exhibition is Sunday, October 30, at home against the University of Rochester.
