The Bowie State University Lady Bulldogs got their first win of the season, claiming a 50-41 road win at the Chowan University Hawks on Sat., Nov. 21. Seniors Denita Hill and Bianca Lee led BSU with 10 points each.
The Hawks offense was slow to get started and scored just 11 first half points. Chowan bounced back with 30 second half points and cut the Bowie State lead to five (46-41) with 2:10 left in the game. However, the first half damage was too much for the Hawks to overcome.
Bowie State (1-2, 1-0 in the CIAA) out rebounded Chowan 48 to 39 in the game and hit 19-of-31 (37 percent) from the floor. After shooting 16 percent from the floor in the first 20 minutes, Chowan€s Hawks came out to hit 36 percent (11-of-31) in the final period of play. Lee and senior Flodysha Peterson led Bowie State on the glass, grabbing eight boards each.
Brittany Nicholson scored a game-high 14 points and added seven rebounds and three assists to lead Chowan. Naomi Walters chipped in 12 points to go along with six rebounds and Tameka Christopher pulled down a game-high nine rebounds for the Hawks.
Eight other Bowie State Lady Bulldogs scored in the game, which included a half dozen each from junior Teaunsha Robinson and sophomore Juliette Turner. The BSU trio Peterson, junior Lakisha Walker and sophomore Andrea Watson added four points apiece in the victory.
