 Defensive Effort Leads Bulldogs Over Elizabeth City State, 55-44


ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. --The Bowie State women's basketball team kept Elizabeth City State to just 29.8 percent shooting from the field on the way to a 55-44 victory over the Vikings on the road Wednesday.

The Bulldogs (8-8, 4-3 CIAA) had two players score in double figures, led by freshman Mia Smith (Clarksburg, MD), who had 12 points. Junior Robyn Howard (Temple Hills, MD) tacked on 11 points and two steals and redshirt sophomore Katerra Myers (Burtonsville, MD) added eight points, seven rebounds and two steals.

Bowie State's defense held Elizabeth City State (10-6, 4-4 CIAA) to only 29.8 percent shooting from the field, including 29.4 percent from beyond the arc.

How It Happened

After jumping out to a 9-5 advantage, BSU went on a 9-0 run with 5:06 left in the first quarter, culminating in a bucket from Smith, to increase its lead to 18-5. The Bulldogs then lost some of that lead, but still entered the quarter break with an 18-7 advantage. Bowie State relied on its three-point shooting in the period, knocking down three shots to account for nine of its 18 points.

The Bulldogs maintained their lead in the game's second frame and entered halftime with a 23-21 edge. Bowie State forced four ECSU turnovers in the period and turned them into four points.

The Lady Vikings then took a 35-33 lead following intermission before BSU went on an 8-0 run, punctuated by a basket from graduate senior Jazmyne Scott (Brooklyn, MD), to grab a 41-35 lead with 23 seconds to go in the third. Before the third period was over, the Bulldogs added one point to that lead and entered the fourth stanza with a 43-36 edge. Bowie State took advantage of seven Elizabeth City State's turnovers in the quarter, scoring five points off of takeaways.

Bowie State kept widening that lead, expanding it to 46-38 before going on a 5-0 run, finished off by sophomore Anii Harris' (Ellicott City, MD) jumper, to grow the lead to 51-38 with 6:14 to go in the contest. The Lady Vikings narrowed the margin somewhat before the game was over, but the Bulldogs still cruised the rest of the way for the 55-44 win. Bowie State took advantage of its opportunities in the post, scoring six of its 12 points in the paint.
