BOWIE, Md. – Mfon Ekanem (Springdale, Md.) stepped up to the free-throw line with 13 seconds left and sank one of two from the charity stripe as the Lincoln University women's basketball team rallied to defeat Bowie State, 61-60, on Saturday afternoon in the CIAA Northern Division opener at A.C. Jordan Arena.

With the game tied at 60, Ekanem hit the first of two shots at the foul line to give Lincoln a 61-60 lead. Her second shot hit the front iron and was rebounded by freshman Sandra Davis (Bronx, N.Y.). However, Bowie State couldn't get off a shot as the Lady Lions got the win.
Tahlar McIntosh (Pittsburgh, Pa.) tied her career-high with 21 points, including going 9-of-14 from the foul line. Cynthia Johnson (Randallstown, Md.) had 17 points, seven rebounds, three steals and three assists. Ekanem finished with six points, including 4-of-6 from the foul line and pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds as the Lady Lions (7-10 overall, 3-4 CIAA, 1-0 CIAA North) were 17-of-53 from the field for 32 percent.

The Lady Bulldogs (4-11, 1-6broke open a close game with an 8-1 run, capped by a Jasmine McIntosh 3-pointer with 3:35 remaining in the first half. Lincoln got a flurry of buckets by Johnson, Courtney Smith (Milwaukee, Wis.) and McIntosh during the final three minutes as the Lady Lions closed out the first half on a 16-5 run to take a 33-30 advantage into the break.

Lincoln opened the second half strong and used a 12-2 run to take a 45-32 advantage after a McIntosh 3-pointer with 15:35 remaining. Bowie State slowly responded and used a 14-1 run during the next seven minutes to tie the game at 46 after a bucket by sophomore Channell Mackey (Clinton, Md.) with 8:48 left.

The Lady Bulldogs grabbed a 56-51 lead after a layup by junior Kammera Johnson (Germantown, Md.) with 4:12 remaining, but the Lady Lions battled back and tied the contest at 60 after a pair of McIntosh free throws with 34 seconds left.

After a missed Bowie State shot, Ekanem was fouled with 13 seconds left, setting the stage for the late-game heroics.

Sophomore Jasmine McIntosh (Bowie, Md.) paced the Lady Bulldogs with 15 points, while junior Brooke Miles (Upper Marlboro, Md.) had nine points and senior Jasmine Jacobs (Baltimore, Md.) recorded eight points and nine rebounds as Bowie State shot 33 percent (22-of-66) from the floor.

Bowie State will look to snap their seven-game losing streak on Wednesday (January 23rd), hosting the Lady Panthers of Virginia Union at 5:30 pm.
