RALEIGH, N.C. - The Bulldogs rolled out to an 11-point halftime lead and cruised to a 90-72 road victory against the Falcons of Saint Augustine's University. With the win, Bowie State pulls even at 2-2 in the CIAA and sets their season record at 6-7.

BSU senior Byron Westmorland paced both teams with a game-high 18 points and junior Ray Gatling added 16 points and tied his season-high of seven assists. Five other Bulldogs scored in double figures with senior Najee White recording his fifth double-double of the season (13 points and tied his career-high in rebounds with 16. Seniors Dameatric Scott and Bryan Wilson recorded 12 points each and junior Carlos Smith added 10 points and two blocked shots.

The Falcons did battle back to pull within two, using an 11-2 run following a traditional 3-point play by Tyquan Stroman at the 5:46 mark.

A third, first half dunk by Bowie State’s Smith pushed the Bulldogs lead back up to double digits at 43-22 with 54 seconds left in the opening period and that’s where the scored stayed heading into intermission.

The Falcons trimmed the Bulldogs lead to 48-43 early in the second half only to have Bowie State Wilson triple push the lead back to 10 at 62-52.

A 22-11 burst by the Bulldogs over the final 7:15 of the game was all the visitors needed to seal the lopsided victory.

 The Bulldogs ended the evening shooting 30-of-64 from the field (46.9 percent), which included 7-of-19 behind the 3-point line (36.8 percent) and 23-of-31 from the charity stripe (74.2 percent).

Saint Augustine’s (9-5 / 2-2 CIAA) was led by Stroman with 15 points and Joel Kinard along with Percy Woods finished the very physical contest with 12 and 11 points respectively. Chris Johnson fell just short of a Falcons double-double, adding nine points and a team-high eight rebounds.
