Lincoln’s Long Range Game Deadly in Bowie State Bulldogs 71-50 Division Loss


LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. – The Lincoln Lions shot a blistering 66.7 percent behind the 3-point line in the first half and cruised to a 71-50 victory over Bowie State. This marked the worst loss to Lincoln since the 1985-1986 season. In that game, also played at Lincoln, the Lions won 100-88.

Bulldogs junior Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) paced Bowie State with a team-high 12 points, while senior Carlos Smith (Baltimore, Md.) added 10 points and a team-high six rebounds.

The Bulldogs shot a disappointing 5-of-23 from the field in the first half (21.7 percent) but did manage 62.5 percent (10-of-16) from the charity stripe in period one.

Lincoln began the second half just as the first, as Tony Efese (Spring Valley, N.Y.) drilled back-to-back 3-pointers. Efese recorded 20 points and 10 rebounds, both game-highs to lead the Lions. Kyle Aiken (Randolph, N.Y.) chipped in 13 points and Justin Jackson along with Derrick Washington added 10 points each.

The Lions lead ballooned to 32 points twice in the second half (54-22 and 56-24). Bowie State was close only once the entire game, with Lincoln holding a 3-2 lead in the first minute of the contest.

Bowie State was out-rebounded 43-34 but held a 24-20 points in the paint advantage. The Bulldogs did manage to shoot better in the second half, hitting 10-of-24 from the field, but missed all nine of their 3-point field goal attempts.

Lincoln cooled down a bit in the final period, making only 8-of 28 field goals with three of those being 3-pointers.

The Bulldogs had plenty of free throw opportunities, making 20-of-31 from the charity stripe compared to 10-of-13 for the Lions.

Bowie State’s Bulldogs will look to get back on track when they travel to Virginia Union for a  night clash with the Panthers. Game time in VUU’s Barco-Stevens Hall is 7:30pm

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. – Bowie State University women’s basketball started strong but fizzled in the end, dropping a 52-43 decision to The Lincoln University. The loss marks BSU’s sixth consecutive setback and puts the Lady Bulldogs record at 6-9 overall, 1-6 in the CIAA and 0-1 in the North.

The Lady Bulldogs jumped out to an early 4-0 lead and extended that lead to 12-4 by the first media timeout. In the first 10 minutes, Bowie State is shooting 47 percent from the field, which includes 42.9 behind the 3-point line.

Bowie State pushed the lead to 21-9 on a short jumper in the paint by junior Ashley Castle (Brooklyn, N.Y.). However, the Lady Bulldogs went without a field goal over the final 4:16 of the first half and held a slim 26-24 lead at halftime.
