JCSU Rides 40-4 Free Throw Advantage in Nine Point Win
November 23, 2009
CHARLOTTE, NC - The Johnson C. Smith Lady Golden Bulls converted 21-40 free throw attempts to remain perfect on the season in a 51-42 win over Elizabeth City State University.
On the other side Lady Vikings went 1-4 from the free throw line as the home team was only whistled for 8 fouls during the game. Despite the difference in the foul calling the second half was tightly contested yet JCSU, (17-30 free throws in the second half) was able to close out the game even though they only hit 4 field goals from the floor.
The Lady Golden Bulls (4-0, CIAA 1-0) dominated the glass 47-30 behind 10 rebounds apiece from Sheria Hatcher (12 points) and Brittane Neely (11 points). Shaquella Johnson was the only Lady Viking in double figures with a career high 19 points off the bench.
ECSU (2-1, CIAA 1-1) will return to action at the Virginia State University Thanksgiving Classic November 27-28 in Petersburg, VA. They will face Washington Adventist on November 27th at 1:00 pm and will play Bloomfield College November 28th at 5:00 pm. For more information on ECSU Athletics, visit www.ecsuvikings.com.
