Canton, OH- Bluefield State started their swing road trip with a trip to Malone University. The Big Blues could not muster any offense in this game, and were held to under 40 points for the 2nd time this season. Malone led from the tip and never looked back winning 86-39.
Malone was very efficient with the ball, shooting the ball 48.5% from the field and 42.1% from downtown. That coupled with Bluefield State's poor shooting night, going 23.5% from the field and 18.2% from downtown helped the Pioneers pull away early and never look back.
Bluefield State had two players score double digits in Lyndsay Hatfield and Tanasia Blake. Hatfield scored 14 pooints and was 3 rebounds short of a double-double. The "walking double-double" that is Tanasia Blake had a team high 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, 8 of those on the defensive end.
Bluefield State now will take on the GMAC Regular Season Champions in Ursuline College. Tip-off will be at 5:30 pm and Arrows will provide live stats, so be sure and check go-bstate.com for the links.
