Indiana (Pa.) Holds Off Late Bowie State Charge to Edge Bulldogs 61-59



BOWIE, Md. – The seventh-ranked Crimson Hawks held off a late run by host Bowie State to come out with a big 61-59 road win in Atlantic Region men's basketball action on Tuesday night.

Sophomore Enuoma Ebinum (Greenbelt, Md.) tallied a team and career-high 22 points for the Bulldogs and grabbed six rebounds. Freshman Ahmaad Wilson (Baltimore, Md.) chipped in 11 points and junior Justin Beck (Ellicott City, Md.) contributed nine points.

The Bulldogs went on a 15-4 run over the last 7:51 of action, helping cut IUP's lead to 61-57 with 1:25 left in the game. Cameron Knox (Baltimore, Md.) drilled a three-pointer to bring their deficit to four, forcing an IUP timeout.

After a turnover by the Crimson Hawks, Knox again stepped up by making a pair of free throws on the other end to make it a two-point game with 46 seconds to go in the game.

Indiana (Pa.) salted away the clock, but a three-point try by Jeremy Jeffers (Wilson, N.C.) with 12 seconds to go rattled off the rim, giving Bowie State the ball back, with the Bulldogs calling a timeout with 6.2 seconds left on the clock.

Inbounding the ball next to their own bench, the Bulldogs tried to get a shot off in the far corner, but the Crimson Hawks played smothering defense and knocked the ball away, not allowing Bowie State to get a shot off in the final seconds.

The Crimson Hawks improve to 5-0 on the season with the victory while Bowie State drops to 3-2. The Bulldogs had previously beaten then-4th-ranked East Stroudsburg earlier this season.

Daddy Ugbede (San Meteo, Calif.) led Indiana (Pa.) with 22 points in just 20 minutes off the bench. He finished 7-of-8 from the field and 8-of-10 from the foul line and also grabbed a team-high six rebounds for the Crimson Hawks.

The Crimson Hawks shot 42.0 percent from the floor after starting the game making half of their shots, going 12-of-24 in the opening 20 minutes. IUP also turned the ball over 21 times on the night, but forced Bowie State into 12 turnovers and outrebounded the Bulldogs 37-to-26.

IUP used a 14-4 run in the first half to break an 11-11 tie and take a 25-15 lead on a three-pointer by Devante Chance (Philadelphia, Pa.) with 6:56 on the clock. The Crimson Hawks led by as many as 11 in the first half before heading into the locker room with a 34-27 lead.

The Crimson Hawks stretched their lead to 14 points early in the second half at 41-27 and later led by as many as 16 points at the 11:22mark before Bowie State mounted their comeback.

Chance nearly notched a double-double with nine points and nine rebounds, adding four assists and a steal. Devon Cottrell  (Pittsburgh, Pa.) had eight points and five rebounds after fouling out in just 22 minutes, while Jeffers added seven points.

The Bulldogs will break for Thanksgiving before returning to action on Saturday (November 29th), hosting Cheyney University at 4 pm.


Shippensburg Early Run Sinks Lady Bulldogs 88-52



BOWIE, Md. - The Shippensburg University women's basketball team used an 18-0 run during the first half on Tuesday night to build a 20-point halftime lead over Bowie State before ultimately dispatching the Bulldogs, 88-52, inside A.C. Jordan Arena.

Shippensburg (2-2) fell behind 4-2 in the first two minutes of play before holding Bowie State (2-3) scoreless for the next eight-plus minutes. The Raiders shot 7-of-11 from the field during its 18-0 run, making three 3-pointers during the decisive stretch. The Raiders led 45-25 at halftime.

Five Raiders finished the game in double figures, while Shippensburg's bench players combined for 50 points – just two shy of the entire Bowie State team.

Vicky Tumasz led the Shippensburg reserves with 16 points in just 18 minutes, shooting 5-of-8 from the floor including 3-of-5 from three-point range. She scored 12 of her 16 points in the first half.

Colleen Young paced the starting five, matching Tumasz with a career-high 16 points. Caitlyn Deeter delivered 13 points off the bench on 3-of-5 shooting and making two of her three three-point attempts. Deeter was also 5-of-5 from the free-throw line with five rebounds. 
Victoria Blackburn scored five points on Shippensburg’s decisive run and finished the game with 13 points. Stephanie Knauer contributed 13 points and six rebounds, while Morgan Griffith had five points, seven rebounds and four assists for the Raiders.

As a team, the Raiders ended the evening shooting 50 percent from the field (29-of-58), which included 8-of-18 behind the arc and Shippensburg made 22-of-36 free throws (61.1 percent).
