Freshman Tamera Giles led six players in double figures with 17 points and she added 13 rebounds, as Cumberland scored 27 points off 24 Fisk turnovers in an 88-55 victory here Thursday night at Henderson Johnson Gymnasium.

Jalita Fason and Terra Pryor each finished with 12 points and Chelsey Hall, Jasmine Smith and Bre Neal all netted 11 for the Bulldogs (2-1), who shot 52 percent from the field in the game.

Cumberland led by 15 points at the half and started the second period with a 16-6 spurt highlighted by nine points from Hall, including a pair of 3-pointers. The Bulldogs maintained a 20-point edge throughout the second half before stretching the lead in the final minutes, including a 19-8 run over the final six minutes to end the game.

Giles netted five free throws during the stretch and Layce Colter posted six points with a final trifecta in the final minute.

Kimetrice Cox led Fisk with 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting while Sommer Griffin was the only other Fisk player in double figures with 11 points.

Giles and Neal netted 14 of the team’s first 15 points in the contest, with Giles picking up three offensive rebounds and converting the putbacks and Neal hitting a pair of short jumpers as well as a layup. Fason’s layup and another field goal from Neal gave the Bulldogs a 19-10 advantage with 11:42 left in the period.

Cumberland went to the press midway through the half and forced five straight turnovers by the home team. Fason had a pair of buckets before a 3-pointer by Pryor and then a 15-footer from Kaitlin Oliver for the Bulldogs. Giles’ fourth putback of the half pushed CU’s lead to 34-13.

Keonna Gray made two free throws and a driving layup before two foul shots by Cox and then a jumper from Cox cut the Cumberland advantage to 36-23, but Hall’s layup with 1:35 left in the half gave CU a 38-23 lead at the break.

Giles and Neal were each 5-for-6 from the floor for 10 points and Giles added six rebounds. The Bulldogs forced 12 turnovers in the half, netting 15 points off the Fisk miscues.

Cumberland plays its fourth game in eight days on Saturday at Oakwood University before returning home next Tuesday for a 6 p.m. contest, also against Oakwood.
