Lady Bears Fall Apart Against Savannah State

By Benjamin McKnight IIIIn 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.

The Bears opened up the game with a 10-3 run and lead by as many as eight points in the first half after an emphatic putback dunk from junior guard Rasean Simpson.

Bears Lose Nail Biter in Home Opener

By Benjamin McKnight IIIThe shot looked perfect leaving the hands of freshman guard C.J. Vaughan, but as the ball rimmed out, so did Morgan State’s chances of winning their first home game of the season against nearby Towson University on November 17, who left Hill Field House with a 51-46 win. Coming off a loss to Penn State the previous Friday, the Bears looked to redeem themselves in Hill Field House against a Tigers team who was also 0-1. “I drew that play up for C.J., but I’ll take that nine out of 10 times,” said Head Coach Todd Bozeman […]
