The first nine games of the season went perfectly for the Binghamton Bearcats women's basketball team and their second-year coach Bethann Shapiro Ord.  Perfect as in 9-0.  The Bearcats went to final exams week undefeated.  The last game before the break saw the Bearcats come-from-behind to defeat the Cornell Big Red 59-56 in Ithaca.
