GLENVILLE STATE ESCAPES BOWIE STATE WITH AN 81-78 VICTORY OVER LADY BULLDOGS


GLENVILLE STATE ESCAPES BOWIE STATE WITH AN 81-78 VICTORY OVER LADY BULLDOGS


BOWIE, Md. – Sophomore Jasmine McIntosh recorded her first double-double of the season, leading the Lady Bulldogs with 18 points and 11 rebounds, but Glenville State escapes Bowie State with the 81-78 victory.

“I was truly impressed and can’t be disappointed about the overall effort of the ladies tonight”, said second-year head coach Renard Smith. “We had some second chance opportunities down the stretch but just couldn’t convert.”

Bowie State jumped out to a 12 point lead, 17-5 with 13:23 left to play in the first half, but Glenville State would battle back. McIntosh was responsible for nine of the Lady Bulldogs’ points during that opening game run.

The Lady Pioneers would re-take the lead, 29-28, at the 6:32 mark when Kenyell Goodson hit a deep three pointer. Glenville State would end up taking a 12 point lead into halftime, 53-41. The Lady Pioneers made 16 first half field goals with 13 of those coming beyond the 3-point line. In fact, Glenville State shot better behind the arc, (13-of-25) 52 percent, than they did on two point shots (3-of-18).

In the second half, Bowie State would make a strong run as they would regain the lead at 76-73 with only 3:09 left to play in the game. The Lady Bulldogs trimmed the halftime deficit to 61-60 on a free throw by McIntosh at the 12:25 mark and seized the lead on a 3-pointer by junior Brooke Miles on its next possession.

The second half would feature three ties and four lead changes with Bowie State holding a commanding 22-2 points in the paint advantage. In total, the Lady Bulldogs controlled the paint, closing out the non-conference contest with a 42-6 points in the paint advantage and 62-49 advantage on the glass.

Glenville State’s Ginny Mills tied the game at 76-76 on her sixth three-pointer of the night and the Lady Pioneers would not trail again. Glenville State closed out the game with five straight free throws.

The Lady Pioneers bench would out score Bowie State’s bench 52 to 20 as Glenville ran substitutes in and out of the game (five and a time) the majority of the night.

Mills led Glenville State with a game-high 23 points and pulled down six rebounds and handed out three assists. Kenyell Goodson scored 15 points in the victory while Ashleigh Fossett went three for three from behind the three point line and went two for two from the free throw line scoring 11 points each. Kenyona Simmons led the visitors with seven rebounds, while Jessica Parsons led the team with four assists.

Sophomore Bria Robinson just missed a double-double, scoring 16 points to go along with eight rebounds and personal season-highs of four assists three blocks. Junior Moriah Goodman and senior Cortney Baynard both chipped in with 10 points.

The Lady Bulldogs close out the first semester home portion of their schedule on Thursday (December 6), hosting the Rams of Shepherd University at 6 pm.
