SALISBURY — Livingstone’s women’s basketball team shot 1-for-13 in the first quarter on Wednesday to dig a hole.

Playing in front of 135 fans at New Trent Gym, the Blue Bears (3-11, 2-4) suffered a 61-40 loss to CIAA Southern Division opponent Fayetteville State.

Livingstone shot 23.1 percent for the game but still had a great chance entering the fourth quarter. That’s when the Broncos outscored LC 24-7 to pull away.

Victoria Onozie scored nine for the Blue Bears. Alexis Lake had eight points and eight rebounds.

Fayetteville State (6-7, 3-2) put two in double figures. The visitors made 23 turnovers, but they shot 42 percent from the field and shot a sizzling (7-for-12) from the 3-point line.
