Bears continue MEAC dominance with win against visiting Rattlers

Devon Ashby, Staff WriterThe Morgan State University men’s basketball team defeated Florida A&M University, 77-60, to remain first in conference standings. The first half saw the Rattlers miss eight of their first nine shots and while they started to find their rhythm, it was tough to overcome; the Bears shot over 50 percent from the field and connected on several long-range shots. “I’m always going to bring a ton of energy into a game,” said junior guard Tiwian Kendley, who lead all scorers with 21 points. “When I bring energy, it picks [the rest of the team] up.” “Tiwian’s been […]

Basketball Jones continue for the Lady Bears

Ty’Rique Sims, Staff WriterThe Morgan State University Lady Bears (2-19, 0-8) went into Monday’s game searching for their first MEAC victory of the season. Instead, they suffered a second snake bite to the Florida A&M University Rattler Women (6-15, 4-4) losing drastically 61-26. The Rattler Women defeated the Lady Bears 51-48 January 9 in Tallahassee, Fla. This game, however, was far less exciting. Morgan missed their first nine shots in the opening period, resulting in FAMU scoring 16 unanswered points. Junior forward Tykyrah Williams gave the Lady Bears their first bucket of the game with three minutes left in the […]

The Lady Bears fought back to cut the UMBC lead to 35-28 by the half. During halftime, head coach Edward Davis told his team to “look […]

Late game herorics give Bears double-overtime win

Ty’Rique Sims, Staff WriterOne can do a lot in three seconds. Especially in basketball. Morgan State University’s junior guard Tiwian Kendley too realized three seconds was a plenty of time and hit a shot near half-court at the end of regulation to send the Bears into overtime. Kendley’s running three-pointer tied the game up at 67 en route to a Bears 85-82 double-overtime victory Tuesday night against the Manhattan Jaspers at Hill Field House. That tying shot as regulation ended came in response to Manhattan’s Thomas Capuano’s three that gave the Jaspers a 67-64 lead. After seven lead changes and […]

Visiting Panthers erase double-digit lead to win at the buzzer

Devon Ashby, Staff WriterAfter having a 13-point lead diminish one in the final two minutes of Tuesday’s game, Morgan State University’s men’s basketball team headed to the free-throw line needing two points and a defensive stop to win the game. Freshman Stanley Nelson missed the front end of his two free throws and, with four seconds left, High Point University sophomore Anthony Lindauer got open and hit a three-pointer as time expired to give the Panthers a 62-61 win. The Bears defense forced High Point into a mistake-filled first half, keeping them from scoring until nearly eight minutes into the half. […]
