WEST CHESTER, Pa. – West Chester University explodes for 60 second half points and blows past Bowie State University 109-97Tuesday evening in Hollinger Fieldhouse. The loss sets the Bulldogs record at 3-4 overall.

West Chester (5-1), which has rattled off five straight wins after a season-opening loss, posted triple digits for the second straight game. It marked the first time in school history that the Golden Rams ripped off back-to-back 100-point outputs.

Senior Ray Gatling (Oxon Hill, Md.) paced the Bulldogs with 20 points and juniors Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) and Zafir Williams (Philadelphia, Pa.) added 17 and 19 points respectively. Williams’ points contribution was a personal season-high and he also handed out six assists. Bulldogs senior David Golladay (Upper Marlboro, Md.) pumped in a career-best 18 points.

The Golden Rams out-rebounded the Bulldogs 20-14 in the first half and made 16-of-29 field goals (55.2 percent), which included 4-of-11 behind the arc.

Bowie State shot the ball well in the first half as well, making 17-of-33 (51.2 percent), including 3-of-12 behind the 3-point line.  Foul trouble hurt the Bulldogs in the first half as senior Carlos Smith (Baltimore, Md.) was saddled with three fouls and saw just four minutes of action.

West Chester, which led by as many as 29 in the game, went on a 26-5 run over a seven-minute span early in the second half that turned a close four-point contest (58-54) into a rout (84-59) with still well over nine minutes left to play in the game. The Golden Rams did it with its hot shooting from the field.

West Chester shot 54.1 percent from the field in the game (33-for-61), including 47.6 percent from beyond the 3-point arc (10-of-21) and 76.7 percent from the foul line (33-of-43). Bowie State matched the Golden Rams accuracy from the field and the line. But, its 26.1 percent from the 3-point line (6-of-23) was not enough to keep up with the Golden Rams.
