Staff report

BOWIE, Md. — Kyaja Williams’ double-double led Bowie State past Livingstone, 62-50, here Monday night in women’s college basketball action.

Williams, a 5-8 senior forward, scored 16 points and grabbed 14 rebounds while playing all 40 minutes for Bulldogs, who improve to 10-0 overall and 3-0 in the CIAA.

The Blue Bears fall to 3-6 and 1-4 in the conference.

The Bulldogs made 21-of-41 shots, including 5-for-12 from 3-point range. In addition to shooting 51 percent from the floor, Bowie made 15-of-21 free throws.

Meanwhile, Livingstone made just 19-of-63 shots from the floor (30 percent) and shot equally as poor at the charity stripe — 6-of-15 (40 percent).

Bowie had 25 turnovers, comparing to just 10 for the Blue Bears, somewhat keeping Livingstone in the game.

Bowie led at halftime, 26-20, after a low-scoring first 20 minutes. The Bulldogs held the lead during the entire second half, although LC cut the deficit to six points (52-46) with 5:27 remaining, on a layup from Mia Terry.

That was as close as the Blue Bears got as, Shawnkia McCallum scored seven points down the stretch, and Amel Duggins had a big 3-pointer.
