LADY BULLDOGS BASKETBALL OPENS SEASON WITH 67-50 WIN AT WASHINGTON ADVENTIST


LADY BULLDOGS BASKETBALL OPENS SEASON WITH 67-50 WIN AT WASHINGTON ADVENTIST


TAKOMA PARK, Md. – The Bowie State University women’s basketball team had little trouble in their season opener, using a 22-4 second half burst to defeat Washington Adventist 67-50. BSU is 1-0 in the overall standings, while the Lady Shock drop to 0-3 overall.

The Lady Bulldogs struggled throughout the first half of play but managed to take a 26-23 lead into halftime after trailing most of the first 20 minutes of non-conference action. BSU sophomore Bria Robinson opened the game with a triple but WAU’s Quianna Tiggle answered with a 3-point field goal of her own. Washington Adventist went on a 17-9 run to take a 20-12 advantage at the 5:22 mark.

Following a Bowie State timeout, the Lady Bulldogs outscored the Lady Shock 14-3 to close out the half.  BSU made 11-of-32 field goals (34.4 percent) in the first period compared to 9-of-35 (25.7 percent) for Washington Adventist.

Angelica Nevarez began the second half with a layup to pull Washington Adventist within one (26-25), but the Lady Shock would get no closer. The Bowie State lead quickly grew to double-digits on another 3-pointer by Robinson at the 15:08 mark and the rout was on.

The Lady Bulldogs lead ballooned to as much as 22 points late in the second half with second-year head coach Renard Smith substituting at will. “Everyone played and everyone scored … A win is a win, no matter how ugly it was”, said Smith.

BSU’s Robinson led all scorers with a game-high 22 points in her Lady Bulldogs debut, hitting 7-of-10 field goals, which included three 3-pointers. Robinson also tied for team-high rebound honors with seven and added 5-of-6 free throws. Sophomore Jasmine McIntosh contributed nine points to go along with five rebounds and senior Jasmine McIntosh added seven rebounds and seven points.

Tiggle paced the Lady Shock with a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds and Briana McClain scored nine points that included 6-of-8 from the charity stripe.

Bowie State will have one day off before playing back-to-back neutral site games against Florida Southern on Saturday (November 17) and Glenville State on Sunday (November 18) as part of the University of D.C. Classic.
