SHEPHERD KEEPS BOWIE STATE WINLESS WITH 65-54 VICTORY


(SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va.) A very young Bowie State women’s basketball team continues to search for its first win of the season after falling 65-54 to the Rams of Shepherd University. The Lady Bulldogs (0-6) were led by senior Juliette Turner and sophomore Chanet Wallace who scored a combined 25 points.


The Shepherd Rams were never threatened from beginning to end and led by as much as 20 points (50-30) with 14:22 remaining in the game. Shepherd made 13-of-29 field goals in the first half (44.8 percent), which included 6-of-8 (75 percent) beyond the 3-point arc. In comparison, Bowie State made only 8-of-27 from the field in the first 20 minutes (29.6 percent).


Shepherd (5-3) opened the game with a 9-0 run before BSU’s Turner scored on a 3-pointer to stop the run. Shepherd’s Katie Biggs answered with a triple of her own to give the Rams their first double-digit lead of the game at 11-3 at the 16:15 mark.


The Shepherd lead grew to 14 points twice and the host Rams cruised into intermission leading by a dozen at 36-24. Bowie State committed 10 of its total 13 turnovers in the first period which resulted in 11 Rams’ points.


Bowie State and Shepherd had similar success shooting the ball in the second half. The Lady Bulldogs hit 11-of-28 (39.3 percent) from the floor and 8-of-11 (72.7 percent) from the free throw line. On the other side of the ledger, the Rams hit 13-of-31 (38.7 percent) from the field and 3-of-4 (75 percent) from the charity stripe.


Defensively, senior Kimberly Jones swatted away a career-high four shots to go and added 10 points and six rebounds.


Gabby Flinchum led Shepherd with 13 points to go along with six rebounds, one assist and one block. Biggs and Jenn Prine also scored in double figures with 12 and 11 points respectively. Emily Daniel grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds for the Rams.


Turner paced Bowie State with team-highs 13 points and seven rebounds. Wallace finished the afternoon with a dozen points and six rebounds. Junior Cortney Baynard and Jones rounded out the Lady Bulldogs’ double figure scorers with 11 and 10 points respectively.


The Lady Bulldogs hit the road again next weekend (December 18th-19th) participating in the Susan B. Komen Shoot for the Cure hosted by Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Bowie State will play California University of Pennsylvania on opening day at 12:30 pm and will wrap up the weekend against IUP at 2:30 pm on Monday (12/19) in the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex.
