Lady Bears Fall Apart Against Savannah State

Lady Bears Fall Apart Against Savannah State

In their first home contest since January 19, the Morgan State Lady Bears struggled to find their rhythm when they needed it most against the visiting Lady Tigers of Savannah State University. The Lady Bears were down by two points at halftime, but the intermission only hurt them as the Lady Tigers took a double digit lead midway through the second half two win 72-58. “If we win this, we’re close to second or third,” said assistant coach Ed Davis, who was filling in for head coach, Donald Beasley, who is recovering from an injury. Instead, the Lady Bears fell […]
