                (BOWIE, Md. – February 11, 2012) Junior Dameatric Scott scored a Bowie State career-high to lead the No. 21 Bulldogs to a 69-63 victory over the Lincoln University of Pennsylvania Lions in a nationally televised contest.

                The Bulldogs got some distance from Lincoln in the final two minutes as Bowie State took their largest lead of the opening half 31-24 after a pair of free throws by senior Travis Hyman.  However, the Lions got a 3-pointer from Justin Jackson to close the gap to 31-27 right before halftime.


                Lincoln (11-14, 6-8 CIAA, 4-4 North) opened the second half on a 13-4 run to take a 40-35 lead following a Kenny Sharpe 3-pointer from the right wing with 15:40 remaining.  Bowie State quickly responded and tied the game at 40 after a Scott 3-pointer and putback with 13:57 left.

                Scott’s trey sparked a 14-9 run to give Bowie State a 54-49 advantage with just under eight minutes left in the game.  Lincoln’s Lions had a small spurt to trim the deficit to 54-53 after a Sharpe free throw at the 6:55 mark.

                The Bulldogs used a 10-4 run, capped by a three-point play by senior Darren Clark to give Bowie State a 65-57 lead with 1:37 remaining.  The Lions tried to rally with buckets by Denzel Mooney and Richard Glover to cut the deficit to 65-61 with 29 ticks left on the A.C. Jordan Arena scoreboard.


                Junior Byron Westmorland missed a pair of free throws with 18 seconds left and Lincoln took advantage as Sharpe scored on a tip-in.  BSU senior Jay Gavin was fouled on the throw in and sank a pair of free throws with 11.4 seconds left and sealed the win with two more free throws with 3.6 seconds remaining in the CIAA Northern Division matchup.

                Sharpe recorded game-highs of 22 points and nine rebounds to pace Lincoln.  George Jackson scored 14 points and Mooney added 13 points.

                The Lions shot 34 percent from floor (23-of-67) compared to 40 percent (21-of-52) from the floor for the Bulldogs.


                Besides Scott’s production, Clark and Westmorland chipped in 13 and 12 points respectively and Gavin finished with 10 points.  Bowie State was credited with 16 total assists with Clark and Gavin handing out six and four respectively.

                Bowie State (19-4, 11-3 CIAA, 7-1 North) will take a break from play before hosting the Trojans of Virginia State University next Saturday (February 18th) at 4 pm in another live television event.





MILES LEADS BOWIE STATE TO 78-45 WHITEWASH OF LINCOLN (PA)


                (BOWIE, Md. – February 11, 2012)  Bowie State played their best half of basketball in the first 20 minutes and sprinted to a convincing 78-45 whipping of Lincoln University of Pennsylvania.  The BSU Lady Bulldogs, winners of four straight, improve to 7-14 overall (7-7 CIAA) and move into first place in the Northern Division with a record of 6-2.

                Bowie State, which shot 58 percent from the floor and 20-of-22 from the free throw line in the first period, opened the game with an 1804 run, capped by a pair of free throws by senior Juliette Turner with 12:55 remaining in the opening half.  The hot-shooting Lady Bulldogs strolled into the break with a very comfortable 52-23 lead.


                Lincoln (7-19, 3-11 CIAA, 3-5 North) really struggled from the floor in the first half, making only 8-of-21 from the field (38 percent).  The Lady Lions made almost as many free throws as field goals in the first half making 5-of-8 from the charity stripe.

                The BSU Lady Bulldogs shooting dropped significantly in the second half, falling to a chilly 24 percent (5-of-21).  Bowie State continued their good free throw shooting, knocking down 16-of-20 in the final half of play.

                The Lady Lions field goal shooting decreased in the second half as well, dipping to 30 percent on 8-of-27 from the floor.  Just like the first half, Lincoln (PA) made 5-of-9 at the free throw line.


                Cynthia Johnson scored a team-high 17 points to lead Lincoln (PA) to go along with five rebounds and Denyse Moore finished with 10 points for the Lady Lions.

                Sophomore Brooke Miles paced Bowie State’s Lady Bulldogs with a career-high 22 points which included a perfect 10-of-10 at the foul line.  Turner and senior Kimberly Jones rounded out Bowie State’s double figure scorers with 16 and 10 points respectively.

                Bowie State will have a six-day layoff before returning to action – Saturday (February 18th) hosting Virginia State University to close out the home portion of their 2011-2012 campaign.  Three Lady Bulldog seniors (Turner, Jones and Chanita Jordan) will be honored with a special awards presentation at the conclusion of the game.
