SENIORS LEAD LADY BULLDOGS TO 60-53 HOME FINALE WIN OVER CHOWAN





BOWIE, Md. – Bowie State University sent their two seniors out on a high note as the Lady Bulldogs defeated Chowan University 60-53. The win puts the Lady Bulldogs in third in the CIAA Northern Division with Virginia State.

Seniors Cortney Baynard (Dover, Del.) and Jasmine Jacobs (Baltimore, Md.) led the way for the Lady Bulldogs with 12 points each. Sophomore Bria Robinson (Richmond, Va.) added eight points and three blocks junior Moriah Goodman (Baltimore, Md.) contributed six points and a game-high eight rebounds.

Bowie State (7-15, 4-10 CIAA, 3-5 North) trailed early in the first half before taking a six point lead (12-6) at the 12:59 mark.

The Hawks used an 8-2 run to regain the lead four minutes later only to have the Lady Bulldogs take the lead back on a three-point play by sophomore Alisha Burley (Baltimore, Md.).

Bowie State went into halftime with a slim 27-24 advantage on 36.4 percent shooting from the floor. Free throws were a key to the Lady Bulldogs’ lead as they converted 11-of-14 (78.6 percent).

The Hawks made 8-of-22 first half field goals (36.4 percent), which included 5-of-6 beyond the arc. Over half of Chowan’s first half points were generated by their bench as the reserved were responsible for 14 in the first 20 minutes.

Chowan (4-19, 4-10 CIAA, 2-6 North) was paced by Naima Harrington (Newport News, Va.) with a team-high 10 points.

The Hawks tied the game twice early in the second half with the last coming at 30 at the 17:39 mark following a lay-up by T’Arra Cutting (Randallstown, Md.).

A 3-pointer by BSU’s Baynard gave the advantage back over to the Lady Bulldogs for good on their next possession at 33-30.

Both teams shot an identical 33.3 percent from the field in the second half, with BSU going 7-of-21 and CU making 9-of-27.

“This was a good win … I thought will played together as a team”, said Bowie State second-year head coach Renard Smith. “The 22 points off (17) Chowan turnovers was the difference in the game.”

The Lady Bulldogs return to action on Wednesday (February 20) at 5:30 pm at Virginia State University. Game time is set for 5:30 pm in VSU’s Daniel Gymnasium.
