SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. – The Bulldogs dug a huge hole for themselves, rallied in second half, but fall 81-79 overtime to Alderson-Broaddus College in Bowie State’s final game of the Clarion Hotel Tipoff Classic.

"For the second consecutive night we get off to a slow start, so I have to figure that out", stated an obvious dejected Bowie State head coach Darrell Brooks. "What's really disappointing is that we're just getting out-rebounded and we shouldn't ... We're a big, athletic, physical team and we should not get beaten on the glass like we did today." Alderson-Broaddus dominated on the glass, holding a 54-32 advantage with 25 of those rebounds coming on the offensive end.
The Battlers (1-1) did not need to wait until the second half for Kurklin Bohanon to put points on the board against the Bulldogs as he did in Saturday night’s opener. Bohanon nailed a pair of 3-pointers and scored eight first-half points to help propel Alderson-Broaddus to an early 18-point lead. 
Bowie State trailed 36-24 at the intermission and shot just 30 percent in the opening period. Second chance points helped bolster the Battlers offense as Alderson-Broaddus cleaned up the glass and tallied 17 in the first half.
The Bulldogs (0-2) stormed out of the locker room and nibbled away at the A-B advantage until they captured their first lead going up 61-60 with 5:04 left in regulation. Bowie State’s offensive explosion was led by Byron Westmoreland, who scored a career and team-high 31 points and went 10-of-24 from the floor with four 3-pointers. Westmorland was named to Clarion Hotel Tipoff All-Classic Team. 
Alderson-Broaddus fell behind as Bowie State shot 60 percent in the final period and built up a four-point lead in the final four minutes.
Bohanon connected on a late trey to tie the game and O’Dell Eargle gave the Battlers a 71-69 lead with close to a minute left, but Bowie State senior Najee White hit a short endline jumper, forcing overtime as time expired. White closed out the afternoon with 17 points and a career-high nine rebounds. 
The lead changed hands four times in overtime and the Battlers went 8-for-8 from the charity stripe to capture the lead and the season’s first victory.
Bohanon and Eargle compiled double-double performances in the win; both scored 22 points and pulled down 11 and 10 rebounds respectively. Eargle also collected a pair of blocks, Stuart Clark led Alderson-Broaddus with five assists and Casey Ainsle had 10 points.

Bowie State will travel to PSAC powerhouse Indiana University of Pennsylvania for a non-conference tilt on Wednesday (November 14th) at 7:30 pm.
