BOWIE, MD–It was a competitive one in Bowie as Johnson C. Smith clashed with Bowie State. The Lady Bulls and Lady Bulldogs were both coming off wins in conference play. Things were close but the Lady Bulldogs continued their winning streak with a 60 to 57 win.

It turned into a showdown in the fourth quarter as both teams took their best shot. The Lady Bulls had 19 possessions as the Lady Bulldogs had 20 possessions. BSU’s 17 fourth-quarter points proved to be the difference at the end, sealing their tenth straight win.
