WBB: Shaw Cruises Past Goldey-Beacom For Fifth Straight Victory

Posted December 28, 2012

— The Shaw Lady Bears used a late first half surge combined with a dominant second half to defeat Goldey-Beacom 82-69 on Friday afternoon at the Joseph West Jones Center.

The Lady Bears used a 13-3 run in the final five minutes of the first half and a series of runs in the second half to win their fifth straight game.

Shaw, who is currently ranked No. 18 in Division II, improves to 5-1 on the season and is currently 3-0 on their current eight-game road trip. Goldey-Beacom drops to 8-7 overall and has lost two of their last three contests.

For the game, both teams shot pretty evenly. The Lady Bears were 28-of-67 from the field for 41.8 percent while Goldey-Beacom was 22-of-53 for 41.5 percent. The Lady Bears controlled the rebounding margin as they outrebounded the Lightning 45-40, including pulling down 16 offensive rebounds compared to 10 for Goldey-Beacom.

The key difference in the game was turnovers. The Lady Bears forced the Lightning to commit 20 turnovers, which Shaw used to its advantage. The Lady Bears scored 23 points off of those 20 turnovers.

Shaw also scored over half of their points in the paint, outscoring Goldey Beacom 42-26. The Lady Bears had a strong bench presence, which they’ve had much of the season, outscoring Goldey-Beacom 32-20 in points off the bench.

The first half was a series of scoring runs by both teams. After the Lightning scored the first two points of the contest, Shaw responded with a 7-0 run with five of the points coming from Crystal Gordon to give the Lady Bears a 7-2 cushion with 17:18 remaining in the period.

Goldey-Beacom answered by going on a 14-7 run over the next four minutes to take a 16-14 lead with 12:55 left. Both teams traded baskets for the next eight minutes and neither team would lead by more than five during the stretch.

With 4:58 left in the first half, Goldey-Beacom’s Ashley Rosario trimmed the Lightning’s deficit to two at 27-25 with a jumper. Shaw closed out the first half with a 13-3 run. During the late run by the Lady Bears, Taylor Dalrymple scored eight of the 13 points, including the last six of the first half to give them a comfortable 40-28 halftime lead.

In the second half, Goldey-Beacom opened on a 7-0 run to get back to within five. During that stretch, Dalrymple and Crystal Gordon picked up early fouls that put them on the bench for much of the rest of the game, allowing Goldey-Beacom to climb back into the contest.

The Lightning’s Irene Hudson scored on a layup to trim the deficit to 40-35 with 15:56 remaining in the contest. Shaw’s Adana David ended the scoring drought for the Lady Bears as she hit a layup while being fouled on the play. After her successful three-point play, the Lady Bears held a 43-35 cushion with 15:37 left.

Rosario’s layup at the 14:18 mark brought the Lightning back to within five at 45-40. The Lightning pulled even closer when Devonne Richardson connected on 1-of-2 free throws to pull within four at 45-41 with 13:52 remaining.

That would be as close as Goldey-Beacom would get for the remainder of the contest. After Richardson’s free throw, Shaw would score five points in 39 seconds to build the lead to nine. David put the Lady Bears back up by six with a layup. Following a turnover by Goldey-Beacom, Shaw’s Whitney King drained a three-pointer to put Shaw up 50-41 with 13:13 remaining in the game.

At the 10:39 mark, David capped off a 14-2 Shaw run by successfully completing a three-point play. David, who sank the free throw after hitting a layup, helped give Shaw a 59-43 lead.

Dalrymple came back into the game for the final 10 minutes of the contest. When she came back in, she picked up right where she left off. At the 9:17 mark, she converted a three-point play of her own to put the Lady Bears up 62-47.

The Lady Bears would go scoreless for almost a three-minute stretch. Goldey-Beacom’s Jacinda Jones drained a three-pointer to bring the Lightning to within 11 at 62-51.

Dalrymple ended Shaw’s scoreless drought after sinking a pair of free throws at the 6:33 mark. A Crystal Gordon layup put Shaw back up by 15 at 66-51 with 6:13 remaining in the contest.

Goldey-Beacom went on a 5-0 run to pull to within 10 (66-56) thanks to a layup from Rosario with 5:40 remaining. On the other end, Dalrymple answered with a three-pointer from the top of the key to put Shaw up 69-56.

Jones drained a three-pointer of her own for the Lightning to bring them back to within 10 once again at 69-59. Once again, it was Dalrymple who was there to help the Lady Bears increase their lead on a layup, which made it 71-59 with 4:35 left to play.

Sixteen seconds later, Dalrymple found Crystal Wilson, who successfully completed a three-point play of her own to put the Lady Bears up 74-59.

Wilson scored again with 1:49 left to put Shaw up 76-62. In the final two minutes of the game, the Lady Bears sank four of their final eight free throws to pull away from the Lightning. For the game, Shaw shot 22-of-35 from the charity stripe.

Dalrymple led all scorers with 23 points and nine rebounds. Wilson finished with 15 points and David contributed with 14 points and hauled in eight boards for the Lady Bears. After scoring five of Shaw’s first seven points, Gordon finished with nine points and 12 rebounds in the victory.

Goldey-Beacom was led by Jones, who finished with 18 points and eight rebounds. Rosario added 14 points while Hudson finished the game with 13. Richardson rounded out the double digit scorers for Goldey-Beacom with 10 points.

The Lady Bears will return to action on Saturday, December 29 as they
