Bowie State's Mens and Womens Basketball Results

Alderson Broaddus Edges Bowie State Bulldogs 73-72

BOWIE, Md. – The Bowie State Bulldogs (3-1) came into Saturday afternoon’s home opener riding a 3-game winning streak but came up short in the end, falling to Alderson Broaddus by a score of 73-72. It was Bowie State’s first loss of the season while the Battlers improve their record to 3-1.

Freshman Ahmaad Wilson (Baltimore, Md.) and senior Zafir Williams (Philadelphia, Pa.) scored 16 and 13 points respectively for Bowie State in the non-conference loss. Senior Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) and junior Justin Beck (Ellicott City, Md.) added nine and eight points respectively before both fouled out late in the contest. Junior Andre Jackson (Baltimore, Md.) just missed a double-double, contributing eight points and a team-high nine rebounds.

The Bulldogs took the loss in spite of a solid overall effort as the team shot 42.6 percent from the field (26-for-61), but were out-rebounded for the first time this season with Alderson Broaddus holding a 38-34 advantage on the glass.

The one stat that stands out the most were free throws as Bowie State made 12-of-20 (60.0 percent) compared to 25-of-37 (67.6 percent) for Alderson Broaddus.

“Free throws made a huge difference in this game as they made more free throws than we attempted”, said Bulldogs head coach Darrell Brooks. “They were very patient in the offense and forced us to foul them with the clock running down”

Bowie State’s defense held the Battlers to just eight first half field goals (on 23 attempts) but Alderson Broaddus converted 9-of-12 first period free throws and really controlled the glass in the first 20 minutes, holding a 23-14 advantage at intermission.

The Bulldogs went 10-for-27 from the floor in the first half of play and went into the break toed at 27-all.

Alderson Broaddus’ Thylas Perkins (Chicago, Ill.) stroked a triple to start the second half and the Battlers never trailed again. In fact, Alderson Broaddus held their largest lead of the game at 66-57 with 2:21 left to play.

The Bulldogs trimmed that deficit down to one with six tenths of a second remaining in the game following a pair of free throws by Williams. Williams’ final free throws came after an intentional foul was called on A-B’s Devin Colston (Baltimore, Md.).

Alderson Broaddus’ Malcolm Tatum (Columbia, Md.) led all scorers with 23 points (13 coming at the free throw line) to go along with four assists, four rebounds and a steal. Perkins tallied 13 points while Richard Lemon (Philadelphia, Pa.) and Ali Bilal (Cleveland, Ohio) contributed 11 and 10 points respectively for the Battlers.

“I’m excited that we played really hard … It was a heavyweight fight with both teams throwing blows … They deserved to win tonight”, stated Brooks.

The Bulldogs host undefeated Indiana University of Pennsylvania on Tuesday (November 25th
) at 7 pm in the A.C. Jordan Arena.

Bowie State Lady Bulldogs Top Alderson Broaddus Battlers 78-60

BOWIE, Md. – Senior Alisha Burley (Baltimore, Md.) led four Bowie State players in double figures, pumping in a career-high 18 points to lead the Lady Bulldogs to a 78-60 home opening victory over Alderson Broaddus. The win pulls the Lady Bulldogs season record at 2-2 and the Battlers falls to 0-3.

“Our win tonight can be attributed to four players scoring in double figures, distributing the ball for scores, second chance points and controlling the glass”, said Bowie State head coach Renard Smith.

Seniors Jasmine McIntosh (Bowie, Md.) and Donia Naylor (Washington, D.C.) scored 16 and 15 points respectively and junior Ty-Nita Baker added 15 points in the win. Naylor notched her 10th career double-double (third this season), hauling down a game-high 13 rebounds to go along with two assists and a pair of blocked shots. Junior Jourdan Stanhope (Columbus, Ohio) played her best game this season, contributing six points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots

Bowie State recorded a season-high 17 assists with Baker responsible for a personal season-best five. The Lady Bulldogs dominated the Battlers in the glass, holding a 50-34 advantage and blocked a season-high seven shots. The Lady Bulldogs shot 19-for-53 from the field (35.8 percent) and 20-for-27 (74.1 percent) from the charity stripe.

Jordan Parker (Tupper Plains, Ohio) paced Alderson Broaddus with 20 points while Rachel Ashley (Teays Valley, W.Va.) and Sydney Shaffer (Toledo, Ohio) tallied 15 points each. Ashley and Madeson McCaster (Memphis, Tenn.) led the Battlers in rebounds with nine and eight respectively.

As a unit, Alderson Broaddus went 28-for-68 (38.2 percent) from the field and knocked down 15-of-20 free throws (75.0 percent) in the loss. The Battlers committed 21 turnovers in the game which translated into 19 Bowie State points.

The first half featured six lead changes and one tie. Bowie State’s Burley scored the first bucket of the game but A-B’s Jordan answered with a 3-pointer for the Battlers first lead of the contest. Alderson Broaddus maintained until a Burley 3-pointer tied the game at 18-all at the 12:25 mark of the first half.

The lead would change hands for more times before a triple by BSU’s McIntosh shifted the advantage over to the Lady Bulldogs at 24-22 with 8:11 remaining in the opening period. Bowie State extended their lead to nine and took a 38-29 score into halftime.

Alderson Broaddus begin the second half with an 11-0 run to regain the lead at 42-38 at the 16:11 mark. Back-to-back layups by Naylor and McIntosh created a 42-all tie less than two minutes later. The game was nip and tuck over the next 10 minutes.  The Battlers held a 55-54 advantage with 6:32 left in the game but that’s the last time the visitors went hold a lead.

Bowie State closed the game with a 24-5 burst with 22 of those points coming in the paint or at the free throw line.

The Lady Bulldogs will entertain Shippensburg in a rematch on Tuesday (November 25th) at 5 pm in BSU’s A.C. Jordan Arena. Shippensburg beat Bowie State a week ago (11/15) by a score of 79-55 in the Lady Raiders’ Wolf’s Bus Lines Classic.
