Today's games

January 27, 1996

Navy (9-8) at Dartmouth (9-6)

Site: Leede Arena, Hanover, N.H.

Time: 3 p.m.

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: After routing Army in Annapolis on Wednesday, 75-44, to regain the Patriot League lead at 4-1, Navy must play six of its next seven games on the road. Michael Heary (11.1 ppg) has regained the team scoring lead from fellow sophomore Eddie Lucas (10.9). A preseason favorite to win the Ivy League, Dartmouth already has defeated three Patriot League teams -- Holy Cross, Army and Lafayette. Junior Seamus Lonergan leads the Big Green in scoring (18.1).

Coastal Carolina (4-12) at UMBC (2-15)

Site: UMBC Fieldhouse

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: UMBC is 0-6 in the Big South Conference and still without point G Eric Hayes, who is recovering from Jan. 18 knee surgery. He'll be out one or two more weeks. In its most recent game, UMBC received 20 points and nine rebounds from senior Tony Thompson (17.2 ppg, 6.0 rpg), but North Carolina-Greensboro took a 77-65 victory. These teams split two games last season, but Coastal Carolina leads the series, 6-2. UMBC has won the past two at home. Coastal Carolina shares last place in the conference with UMBC at 0-6 and has lost eight in a row overall. Junior F Ben Avery averages 15.5 points and 5.8 rebounds.

Morgan State (4-12) at Coppin State (9-7)

Site: Coppin Center

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Radio: WOLB (1010 AM)

Outlook: Morgan State continued its revival with a 73-64 win over Howard on Thursday night, its third victory in four games. The Bears improved to 3-2 in the MEAC behind a balanced offense. Scott Deas (9.5 ppg) scored 18 points, Jerard Rucker and Rasheed Sparks added 14 each and Paul Grant (10.7 ppg) had 10. Morgan, which is 1-11 on the road, will have its hands full tonight, though. Coppin, winner of six in a row overall and 35 straight at home, leads the series, 27-9, and has won 13 of the past 14. The Eagles are 6-0 in the MEAC after Thursday night's 69-60 win over UMES -- the 400th victory for coach Fang Mitchell. Junior Terquin Mott (20.7 ppg, 6.3 rpg) had another sensational game with 25 points and 10 rebounds.

Mount St. Mary's (9-6) at Marist (14-1)

Site: McCann Center, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Freshman G Tony Hayden's three-pointer with nine seconds left lifted Mount St. Mary's over Fairleigh Dickinson on Thursday night, 76-73. Hayden had a career-high 16 points, as the Mount improved to 5-2 in the NEC. Senior Chris McGuthrie led the Mount with 19 points, and senior Riley Inge added 12 points and nine assists. The Mount leads the series with Marist, 9-5, and has won four of the past five. Marist has won nine straight and leads the NEC at 8-0. Alan Tomidy, a 6-foot-11 senior, has nine double doubles this season.
