LINCOLN (PA) LADY LIONS SWEEP SEASON SERIES WITH 65-50 WIN OVER BOWIE STATE



                                                                                                                                                                                  
LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. - Courtney Smith (Milwaukee, Wisc.) scored a team-high 13 points as Lincoln University of Pennsylvania toppled Bowie State University 65-50. The Bowie State loss marks the first ever season series sweep by the Lady Lions.

The Lady Lions’ Tahlar McIntosh (Pittsburgh, Pa.) also scored in double figures adding 11 points. Four Lincoln (Pa.) players had five rebounds each. As a team, the Lady Lions knocked down a season-high 30 (of 50) free throw attempts.

Bowie State (6-14, 3-9 CIAA, 2-4 North) was led by sophomore Bria Robinson (Richmond, Va.) with 13 points and senior Jasmine Jacobs (Baltimore, Md.) added 11 points in the loss. Robinson also hauled down a game-high nine rebounds.

It was pretty much a nip and tuck first 20 minutes of action until the Lady Lions used a 6-0 run to take a 24-18 lead. A layup by Bowie State junior Anisha Wilson (New Haven, Conn.) at the 4:53 mark stopped the Lincoln (PA) run.  

The Lady Lions lead grew to a first half high of eight points as Lincoln (Pa.) headed into intermission with a slim 31-29 advantage.  Lincoln (Pa.) shot a chilly 8-of-27 (29.6 percent) from the field in the first period and made 13-of-19 (68.4 percent) free throws.

Bowie State’s Lady Bulldogs made 8-of-24 (33.3 percent) first half field goals and 11-of-14 (78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Lady Bulldogs defense created 17 Lady Lions’ turnovers in the first half.

Lincoln (Pa.) (8-14, 4-8 CIAA, 2-4 North) opened the second half with a 14-6 run to take a 45-37 lead at under 12 minute media timeout of the second half.

A 3-point field goal by Bowie State sophomore Jasmine McIntosh (Bowie, Md.) followed by a layup by senior Cortney Baynard (Dover, Del.) cut the Lincoln (Pa.) lead to 48-42 with 7:57 left to play in the game. A pair of free throws by BSU’s McIntosh trimmed the deficit to four only to have Lincoln answer with a 6-0 run.

The Lady Lions pushed the lead to 54-44 and were not threatened the rest of the way.  

Bowie State was out-rebounded by Lincoln (Pa.) 51-42 but the Lady Bulldogs scored 18 points off 22 Lady Lions’ turnovers.

Bowie State will return to action on Wednesday, February 13 when they hit the road for a key divisional matchup at Virginia Union University. Game time is scheduled for 5:30 pm in VUU’s Barco-Stevens Hall.
