    CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Brandon Carter scored the tiebreaking basket on a 10-foot jump shot with 40 seconds left in regulation and Binghamton beat the University of Maryland, Baltimore County 59-56 Wednesday night.

    Nick Billings led the Bearcats (9-11, 5-4 America East) with 21 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks. Binghamton, which hit seven of 18 3-pointers, extended its winning streak to a season-high three games.

    Kareem Washington scored 17 points for the Retrievers (6-12, 3-6), who have dropped two straight and four of six.

    After Carter, who scored 12 points, broke the tie, UMBC's Andrew Feeley missed a layup in traffic, recovered his miss but was stripped of the rebound. Billings slam-dunked an outlet pass for a 58-54 lead with 19 seconds remaining.

    UMBC closed within 58-56 on Eugene Young's layup with seven seconds to go and Carter was fouled on the ensuing inbounds play, sinking the second of two free throws for a three-point lead.

    Washington's desperation 3-point attempt at the buzzer fell short.

    Seth Davis' running one-hander gave the Retrievers a 45-42 lead with 6:22 left in the second half, but Binghamton responded with eight unanswered points on a bank shot by Alex Adediran and consecutive 3-pointers by Troy Hailey.

    Washington's right-side 3-pointer knotted the game at 52 with 2:35 left.

    UMBC used an early 11-2 run to take a 19-9 lead before the Bearcats retaliated with 11 unanswered points, capped off by Billings' dunk off a turnover.
