BOWIE, Md. – In front of a packed house between two heavyweights, the Lincoln University men's basketball team outlasted Bowie State and a buzzer beater attempt as the Lions edged the Bulldogs, 66-64, in overtime in a CIAA Northern Division contest on Saturday night at A.C. Jordan Arena.

Derrick Washington (Washington, D.C.) scored 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting and Kenny Sharpe (Chester, Pa.) had 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists as Lincoln (10-6 overall, 3-4 CIAA, 1-0 CIAA North) won at Bowie State for the first time since the 2010 season. George Jackson (Baltimore, Md.) poured in 10 points and Will Cole (Newark, N.J.) led the way on the glass with a game-high 12 rebounds as the Lions shot 36 percent (25-of-70).

Bowie State (7-9, 3-4, 0-1) jumped out to a 13-8 advantage after a layup by senior Bryon Westmorland (Baltimore, Md.) with 11:24 remaining in the first half, but Lincoln rallied and tied the contest after an 11-6 run at 19 as Sharpe sank a jumper with 6:37 left.

The Bulldogs closed out the final six minutes of the half on a 7-2 run to take a 26-21 lead into the break.

Bowie State extended the advantage to 33-23 with 17:08 left in regulation after a huge dunk by senior Najee White (Jamaica Queens, N.Y.), but Lincoln (Pa.) rallied with a 20-9 run during the next nine minutes to grab a 43-42 lead after Washington drained his third 3-pointer of the game.

The Bulldogs quickly answered and took a 54-49 lead after a pair of free throws by Westmorland with 2:04 remaining. However, the Lions answered with a 3-pointer by Sharpe and a pair of free throws to tie the game at 54 with 23 seconds left.

In overtime, the Lions used a small 5-1 run to take a 60-55 advantage after a layup by Sharpe with 3:26 left. The Bulldogs closed the gap to 64-61 after a three-point play by Westmoreland, but the Lions got a layup by Richard Glover (Baltimore, Md.)with 1:18 to push the advantage to 66-61.

A Westmorland 3-pointer cut the Lincoln (Pa.) lead to 66-64 with 1:18 left and the Lions survived a buzzer beater attempt by White to get the win.

Westmorland led Bowie State with 31 points on 9-of-23 shooting, including 5-of-12 from behind the 3-point line. He also added eight rebounds and one steal. White finished with 10 points and added with six rebounds. The Bulldogs were 20-of-55 from the field for 36 percent. Junior Carlos Smith (Baltimore, Md.) led Bowie State on the glass, tying his career-high with nine rebounds.

The Bulldogs will open the doors to the A.C. Jordan Arena to the Panthers of Virginia Union on Wednesday, January 23rd for a 7:30 pm CIAA Northern Division matchup.
