Athens, WV- Bluefield States Women's Basketball went back on the road after a gritty win over Washington Adventist. The women did not have to travel far as they went up Interstate 77 to Athens, WV to face Concord University. The Mountain Lions shot the ball much better than Washington Adventist and capitalized on BSC's mistakes. This caused the Big Blues to fall behind in the second quarter and Concord never looked back, winning 81-60.

Offensively the Big Blues had two players in double figures. Maggie Tien scored 14 points, connecting on four 3's for the game. Tanasia Blake continued her impressive senior season scoring 18 points and getting 12 rebounds. This makes for her 9th double-double this season. As a team the Big Blues shot 37% from the field and 35% from three. They actually did well from the stripe, going 8 for 11 on the night.
The women have a little time off to rest and recover before traveling to Tacoma Park, MD to take on Washington Adventist again. BSC will look to pick up their second win of the season against the Shock. Bluefield State will not be back at home until February 7th when they take on Alderson-Broaddus.
