BOWIE, Md. – It wasn't pretty, but Bowie State University did just enough to claim a 64-59 win over visiting Saint Augustine’s University in the A.C. Jordan Arena on Monday (1/20) evening. The win sets Bowie State’s season record at 12-8 and 4-2 in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).

Senior Cameron Hayes (Upper Marlboro, Md.) came off the bench to provide a team-high 15 points to lead Bowie State. Senior David Belle (Hyattsville, Md.) added 13 points while Juwan Smith (Lexington Park, Md.) along with Kani Coles (Baltimore, Md.) contributed 12 and 10 points respectively in the victory.
Saint Augustine’s (5-11 / 0-6 CIAA) was led by Jalen Gaddy (Raleigh, N.C.) with a game-high 16 points followed by Nilous Hodge (Charlotte, N.C.) and Aaron Johnson-Cash (San Francisco, Calif.) with 13 and 11 points respectively. Hodge and Johnson-Cash also pulled down double digit rebounds with 10 apiece.
Miguel Brown scored the games’ first points of the game for Saint Augustine’s, but Bowie State answered with a 13-2 run to take a 13-4 advantage by the 15:50 mark of the first half. Bowie State maintained its lead over the next six minutes before Saint Augustine’s trim the deficit to 20-18 by the 9:07 mark. BSU’s lead grew to a game-high 16 (35-19) at the 4:53 mark only to have the Falcons close the first half with a 12-5 run and trailed the Bulldogs 36-31 at halftime.
Saint Augustine’s used a 7-4 run to start the second half and took its second lead since 2-0 at 41-40 on a Hodge 3-pointer. The lead would change hands four times over a span of three minutes until a thunderous dunk by Bowie State senior Saiquan Jamison knotted the score at 46-all. 
Jamison shifted the advantage back over to Bowie State a short time later and a Smith jumper gave the Bulldogs a little breathing room at 50-46 with 8:41 to go in the contest.

Saint Augustine’s Johnson-Cash trimmed the Bowie State lead to 53-52 with 3:36 remaining in the game but that’s as close as the Falcons would get for the rest of the game.
Bowie State will be idle until returning to action on Saturday (January 25) in a pivotal conference clash on the road at Lincoln (Pa.). Game time is 4 p.m. in Manuel Rivero Hall.

Williams got the home team going after a layup to commence the second, period, but St. Augustine’s Kiana Clark’s deep ball cut the Bulldogs lead to 15-10 with 8:19 remaining. From there, BSU used a 10-0 run to build its largest lead of the first half at 13 and went to the locker room up 28-15.

During the third quarter, Williams scored four quick points, added a steal and a finish at the other end to give the Bulldogs a commanding lead at 32-17. The team would later put the game out of reach after Duggins’ 3-pointer with 2:26 left to end the third stanza with Bowie State comfortably in front 43-23.

Bowie State held an impressive 28-16 advantage in points in the paint while outscoring the Falcons 26-8 in points off turnovers.
