Shaw Lady Bears Advance to Second Round of NCAA Tournament
Kyria Buford, Aslea Williams and Brittany Ransom had over 20 points apiece, but it was a stifling second-half defense that made the difference as Shaw downed West Virginia Wesleyan in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
With the win, the Lady Bears improve to 24-6 on the season and advance to the regional semifinals where they will take on Gannon, who defeated Johnson C. Smith earlier in the afternoon. West Virginia Wesleyan finishes the season 24-7.
“It’s always good to advance,” said Shaw head coach Jacques Curtis. “Everyone here is a good team. What we saw on the tape is pretty much the game we got.”
