Shippensburg Raiders Cruise Past Bowie State Lady Bulldogs 79-55




SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. – Host Shippensburg University led from beginning to end, cruising to an easy 79-55 non-conference win over Bowie State University on Saturday night. The loss evens the Lady Bulldogs record at 1-1 while the Raiders square their season mark at 1-1.

Morgan Griffin recorded a game double-double high of 25 points and 17 rebounds to lead Shippensburg. Lauren Gold scored 13 points and dished out five assists while Logan Snyder contributed 12 points, two assists and one steal for the Raiders.
 Stephanie Knauer tallied seven points and nabbed nine rebounds as Haley Scullion collected five points, three rebounds and two assists in the win.
 Bowie State senior Donia Naylor (Washington, D.C.) notched her second consecutive double-double of the season, leading the Lady Bulldogs with 16 points and a dozen rebounds. For her efforts, Naylor was named to the All-Tournament Team.

Joining Naylor on the All-Tournament Team was Rachel McDaniel (Lock Haven), Lekendra Wilkerson (Johnson C. Smith), Griffith and Stephanie Knauer (Shippensburg) and Tournament MVP Ashley Porter (Johnson C. Smith).

Lady Bulldogs senior Alisha Burley (Baltimore, Md.) scored 12 points in the loss and junior Ty-Nita Baker (Houston, Miss.) added nine points, five rebounds and a team-high three assists. Seniors Keira Phipps (Arlington, Texas), ReVen Smith (Baltimore, Md.), juniors Alauna Jackson (Ellicott City, Md.) and Luna Jefferson added four points each and freshman Lisa Jing (Laurel, Md.) recorded two points to round out Bowie State’s scorers.

Shippensburg jumped out to a quick lead as it opened with a 12-1 run in the first 3:23 of the game. The Raiders led 36-24 at halftime, and were able to keep Bowie State at arm's length, as the Lady Bulldogs were unable to cut into the 12-point lead for the remainder of the contest. As a team, Bowie State shot a season-low 29.9 percent from the field, making just 23-of-77 and missed all 10 of their 3-point shots. Free throws were a huge discrepancy as the Lady Bulldogs attempted 18 over 40 minutes, converting nine. However, Shippensburg made more free throws (29-of-48) than Bowie State had made field goals.

The next opponent for the Lady Bulldogs is a Wednesday (November 19th) date with Division I George Washington University. Tip-off between the Colonials and Bowie State is scheduled for 7 pm in GW’s Smith Center.
