ELIZABETH CITY STATE, N.C. – The Bowie State women’s basketball team picked up a good CIAA division victory on Saturdayafternoon, defeating Elizabeth City State 65-55. With the win, the Lady Bulldogs improve their overall record to 8-11, 3-8 CIAA and 2-3 in the North.

Jasmine Boyd was the top scorer for the Lady Vikings in the first half with 10 points. Elizabeth City State shot 40 percent from the field (10-of-25) in the first 20 minutes.

Bowie State opened the second half with an 8-0 run before ECSU’s Jadda Jefferies made one of two free throws to stop the run.

A layup by BSU junior Ashley Castle (Brooklyn, N.Y.) 41-36 gave the Lady Bulldogs a little breathing room and pushed the lead to 47-41 with 5:27 to play on a baseline jumper by junior Jasmine McIntosh (Bowie, Md).

The Lady Vikings were able to close the gap down to two (48-46), but a 6-0 run was all the momentum Bowie State would need to finish the game.

Elizabeth City State (5-14, 2-8 CIAA, 2-2 North) had trouble shooting the ball in the second half, making only 8-of-31 (25.8 percent) compared to 15-of-25 (56 percent) for Bowie State.
