Bowie State Women's Basketball Post Game Story vs. Washington Adventist (12/11/13)

BOWIE, Md. - All 14 players of the Bowie State women’s basketball team roster scored in a 91-56 rout of Washington Adventist University on Wednesday evening in the A.C. Jordan Arena. The win improves the Lady Bulldogs record to 5-1 on the year.

Junior Denver Clyde (Glen Burnie, Md.) recorded a double-double of 17 points 10 rebounds and graduate students Ashley Davis (Odenton, Md.) and Brooke Miles (Upper Marlboro, Md.) added 14 and 12 points respectively for Bowie State. Graduate student Uchechi Ahaiwe (Riverdale, MD.) chipped in a personal season-best 10 to round out the Lady Bulldogs double figure scorers.

Washington Adventist (4-8) who had only seven active players, were led by Courtney Cayard (Washington, D.C.), Rashawnda Carter (Washington, D.C.) and Ebonie Ellison (Middletown, Conn.) with 18, 14 and 13 points respectively. Ellison grabbed a team-high nine rebounds for the Lady Shock.

The Lady Bulldogs jumped out to a quick 7-2 lead and stretched the lead to a first half high nine points (17-8) by the 9:49 mark of the first half. However, Bowie State went cold and the Lady Shock used a 9-2 run to pull within two (19-17) with 5:32 left in the first half.

A 3-pointer by Ellison followed by a steal and a 3-pointer by Courtney Cayard gave Washington Adventist their first and only lead of the game at 29-26 with 2:28 remaining in the first period.

Bowie State countered with an 8-0 run to close the first half and sent the Lady Bulldogs into intermission with a 34-29 advantage.

The Lady Bulldogs opened the second half with a 16-4 run, putting the game out of reach in a hurry. Bowie State’s lead increased to 20 points (55-35) at the 12:35 mark of the second half and ballooned to 30 points (81-51) with 3:17 left to play.

“We simply just wore them down … Shot 50 percent from the field (including 3-pointers), almost double them in rebounds and finally got double digit assists as a team, so overall I’m pleased”, said third year head coach Renard Smith.

The Lady Bulldogs’ bench produced 48 points compared to 18 for the Lady Shock and BSU dominated on the glass 52-28. As a team, Bowie State was credited with a season high 18 assists with junior Ashley Castle responsible for a third of them.

Bowie State made 36-of-72 field goals which included 10-of-20 beyond the arc, but made 56 percent of their free throws (9-of-16).

Washington Adventist made 15-of-49 total field goals (31 percent) and 22-of-31 (71 percent) tries from the charity stripe.

The Lady Bulldogs will head into first semester final exams before returning to action on Friday, December 20th against Glenville (W.Va.) State College on opening day of the Sheetz / Herb Sims Classic hosted by Bluefield (W.Va.) State College.
