Diggs sparks Lady Blues to victory

BLUEFIELD — Charlene Diggs came off the bench and scored 19 points in 31 minutes of action to spark Bluefield State women’s basketball to their fifth WVIAC win of the season, 65-51 over Davis & Elkins Monday night in Ned Shott Gymnasium.

The Lady Blues improve to 7-3 (5-2 WVIAC) on the season and have already matched their win total from last season.

Diggs, who missed the last game due to flu-like symptoms, shot 9 of 16 from the field. Dragana Tomic also played well for the Lady Blues, shooting a near-perfect 6 of 7 from the floor for 14 points.

Tasia Nolan had her third consecutive double-digit scoring effort as she recorded 13 points off the bench going 6 for 9 from the field. Nolan and Mebane led BSC on the boards for the second consecutive game, grabbing eight apiece. Tiffany Moorer led the game with four assists.

Co-WVIAC Player of the Week Jordan Lykes and Alicia Lentz shared scoring honors for the Senators (5-6, 4-3) with 10 points each. Lentz also grabbed a game-high nine boards.
