MIAMI SHORES, Fla.—The Barry Buccaneers rebounded from back-to-back losses with an 81-68 win over the Saint Leo Lions in Sunshine State Conference women’s basketball action in the Health & Sports Center on Saturday.

The Bucs (8-4, 1-3 SSC) led by 10, 21-11, with 9:18 left in the first period. But the Lions bounced back to take a 36-35 lead into intermission.

In the second half, however, the Bucs shot a blistering 52.6 percent from the field and out-scored the Lions 23-4 at the free throw line.

Dominique Dixon, who led all players with 20 points, nailed a three-pointer on the Bucs’ first possession of the second period and they did not trail the rest of the game.
