BLUEFIELD, W.Va. -     The 15th ranked Lady Pioneers of Glenville State College rolled to a 130-85 neutral site victory over Bowie State University in the opening game of the Sheets / Herb Sims Classic hosted by Bluefield State College. Bowie State’s record sets a 5-2 while Glenville State improves to 8-1.

Five Lady Bulldogs scored in double figures with graduate student Ashley Davis (Odenton, Md.) leading the way with a personal season-high 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, to go along with two steals, four rebounds and one assist.

The first half featured five ties and seven lead changes with Bowie State’s largest lead (15-12) coming at the 15:38 mark on a jumper by Castle. A Clyde jumper with 12:34 left in the opening period created the games’ final tie at 23. From that point, the Lady Pioneers slowly inched away to take its first double-digit lead of the non-conference contest at 35-25 following a jumper by Tasia Bistow. Bowie State was able to trim the deficit to five twice but went into halftime trailing 58-49.
