WBB: No. 18 Shaw Women Easily Handle Chowan 79-50

Posted January 5, 2013

— The Shaw University women's basketball team claimed their first conference win of the season by downing Chowan 79-50 in a game played at the Helms Center Saturday afternoon.

Less than 48 hours after dropping the conference opener to Elizabeth City State, the Bears played a smothering defense, holding the Hawks to only 25.4 percent shooting on the afternoon. The win improves Shaw's record to 9-2 overall, 1-1 in the CIAA. The Hawks are still winless i9n their 11 attempts, dropping to 0-3 in the conference.

"It's always good to get a win, but we're not going to measure ourselves on beating Chowan," said Shaw Head Coach Jacques Curtis. "This time (Shaw) is still trying to find itself. We're still trying to figure this team out. Hopefully, in the next five games or so, we can start developing some chemistry. It was ugly but we won."

The Lady Bears were paced by Sequoyah Griffin, who scored 18 points and dished out three assists.

"She had a better offensive game than earlier in the year when she wasn't scoring the ball," Curtis said of Griffin. "We took her off the point today and put Ronika (Ransford) there. We moved Sequoyah back to the wing where she was last year."

The Lady Bear defense forced 19 Hawk turnovers, as well as holding them to 18 for 71 from the field, and only one for 13 (7.7 percent) from beyond the arc.

"We played all man (defense)," said Curtis. "I challenged our perimeter people to play better defense. We're putting more pressure on those three, they know they have to bring it every game."

In a foul-plagued first half, the Bears managed to shoot only 28.6 percent, but held Chowan to only 18.2 percent shooting.

The teams opened the game with poor shooting and fouls. Before four minutes had passed in the first half, the two teams had combined for 11 team fouls. While the whistles would slow down the rest of the way, 23 fouls would be committed by the two teams in the first - 12 for Chowan and 11 for Shaw.

Taylor Dalyrmple came into the game late in the first, but managed to haul in seven rebounds in only five minutes in the period. Crystal Gordon also pulled in seven in her 16 minutes in the first.

With the score tied at five, Shaw scored 13 unanswered points, fueled by points from five different Lady Bears. With 12:59 left in the half, Sequoyah Griffin hit a three to close out the scoring run and boost the Shaw lead to 18-5.

Chowan's Shanice Henry then sank a layup, was fouled and converted the free throw with 12:53 left to trim the Shaw lead to ten, but it would be the last points the Hawks scored for over eight minutes. While the Lady Bears would miss 13 shots in those eight minutes, they did score 12 to lift their advantage to 26-8.

With 4:28 left in the half, Talaya Lynch stole the ball and hit a jumper to get the Hawks back on the scoreboard. That would begin a 12-7 run to close out the half, but Shaw would still hold a sizable lead at 33-20 as the teams went to the locker room.

In the second half, the Lady Bears slowly built their lead to 22, reaching that margin when Griffin hit a free throw to give Shaw a 45-23 lead with 15:29 on the clock.

With 13:44 left in the game, Adana David hit a free throw to give Shaw a 20-point, 49-29 lead. Over the next three minutes, Chowan went on a 13-5 run, , trimming the Shaw lead to 12 when Lynch hit a layup to make the score 54-42, Shaw.

That would be as close as the Hawks would get. With 8:25 on the clock, Griffin hit a pair of free throws to begin a 17-point run that concluded with a layup from Diamond Mitchell that gave them a 75-45 lead with 3:46 left.

The scoring slowed to a trickle the rest of the way, with Chowan closing out the game with a 5-4 run, cutting their final deficit to 29 points.

Griffin led all scorers with her 18 points. Ransford had 14, while Adana David added 11 and Kearah Jeffreys had 10. All but one of the 12 Shaw players who saw action scored. Dalrymple finished the game with ten rebounds.

Lynch finished the game with 15 points and Henry added another 11. Naima Harrington had four assists and Lynch led Chowan with nine rebounds.

The Lady Bears return to action Monday night when they travel to Ettrick, Va. for a game against Virginia State. Tip is 5:30 p.m. Shaw returns home on Thursday, January 10, when they host Virginia Union at 6:00 p.m. at Shaw's C.C. Spaulding Gymnasium.
