                (BOWIE, Md. – February 7, 2012)  No. 21 Bowie State University shot nearly 55 percent from the field and drained 10 three pointers en route to a 91-68 thrashing over Chowan University.  The Bulldogs dominated for the majority of the game, going up by 30 on two occasions.

                Bowie State (17-4, 9-3 CIAA, 5-1 North) out-rebounded Chowan 43-30 and scored 16 more points in the paint than did the Hawks.  Four Bulldogs players scored in double figures with senior Jay Gavin leading the charge with 17 points.  Senior Travis Hyman notched a double-double with 15 points and a game-high 12 rebounds.


                Mark Anthony Buright scored 14 points to lead Chowan.  Chris Williams added 12 and Alray Blackmon chipped in nine points.  Quinton McDuffie scored nine and pulled five rebounds for the Hawks.

                Chowan (7-17, 1-11 CIAA, 1-5 North) made just 4-of-17 (23.5 percent) from three point territory compared to 10-of-23 (43.5 percent) for Bowie State.

                Bowie State did not score their first points of the game until a dunk by Hyman got the Bulldogs into a rhythm.  A 16-0 run gave the Bulldogs a 21-4 lead with 12:18 to play in the first half.  The lead later expanded to 30-8.  Chowan brought it within 20 with just under three minutes left in the first half, but could not get any closer.


                The Bulldogs opened its largest lead of the game, 57-27, flowing three Darren Clark free throws at the 16:33 mark of the second half.  A 16-8 Chowan run, capped by a Williams dunk, pulled the Hawks within 22 with 12:18 left to play.  However, that’s as close as the Bulldogs would allow the Hawks to get for the rest of the night.

                Bowie State made a season-high 34 field goals (out of 64 attempts) and recorded a season-high 23 assists.  One negative stat for the Bulldogs came via 24 turnovers, also a season-high.

                “We came out and played well, but I’m not pleased with the number of times we turned the ball over”, said Bowie State head Coach Darrell Brooks.


                The Bulldogs knocked down 18-of-31 first half field goals (58.1 percent) and 16-of-31 (51.6 percent in the second half.  Bowie State blocked a season-high 10 shots with junior Byron Westmorland swatting away a career-high three shots.

BOWIE STATE LADY BULLDOGS SWEEP CHOWAN HAWKS 63-51


                (BOWIE, Md. – February 7, 2012)  The Bowie State University Lady Bulldogs won their second straight game for the first time this season, defeating the Hawks of Chowan University 63-51.  After starting the season 1-13, the Lady Bulldogs have won four of their last six games and sweep the season series against the Hawks.  Chowan’s record falls to 8-14 overall (3-9 CIAA, 1-5 North), and Bowie State improves to 5-14 overall (5-7 CIAA, 4-2 North).

                Chowan made 21 field goals to just 18 for Bowie State, but the Lady Bulldogs held a huge advantage at the free throw line.  For the game, Bowie State shot 23-of-30 at the charity stripe.  The 23 BSU free throws were a season-high for the Lady Bulldogs.  Chowan shot just 6-of-14 overall.  Free throws proved to be a pivotal aspect of the game, as nearly every other statistical category was even between the two teams.


                Bowie State held a slight rebounding advantage (36-32), but Chowan had more steals and forced the Lady Bulldogs into 20 turnovers.

                “The momentum is starting to swing our way and every win, especially at home is a good win”, said first-year head coach Renard Smith.  “The ladies fought hard and everyone stepped up to the challenge.”

                The game was defined by scoring runs, and the Hawks had the first one, going up 7-2 early in the game.  Bowie State came right back with a 15-3 run to take a 17-10 lead with 9:52 left in the first half.  An 8-1 Chowan run tied the game at 18, but the Lady Bulldogs regained an 11 point lead (31-20) at the three minute mark of the first half.


                After holding a 34-23 halftime lead, the Lady Bulldogs opened the second half with a 9-2 spurt to go up 43-25.  However, Chowan would not throw in the towel, holding Bowie State to just three points over the next 9:32 to climb back within seven points.  A Ransheda Jennings layup with 1:20 remaining in the game brought the Hawks within six, but Bowie State went 10-of-11 at the free throw line down the stretch to seal the victory.

                Talaya Lynch scored a game-high 22 points for Chowan and Jennings added a dozen points.  Lynch was also the Hawks’ leading rebounder with six.

                Senior Juliette Turner led the Lady Bulldogs with a double-double; 17 points and 15 rebounds.  Sophomore Brooke Miles was Bowie State’s top scorer with 18 points (one shy of her career-high) to go along with four rebounds and fellow sophomore Chanet Wallace grabbed 10 rebounds off the Lady Bulldogs bench.


                The Lady Bulldogs return to the hardwood – Thursday (February 9th) hosting the Lady Vikings of Elizabeth City State at 5:30 pm in BSU’s A.C. Jordan Arena.
