All of Davis' points came from three-point range or at the free-throw line. The Hornets' point guard hit five of seven from beyond the arc and nine of 10 free throws.

Morgan State got 25 points from its reserves.

Delaware State (4-7, 3-0) took advantage of Bears miscues, scoring 34 points off 20 turnovers. The Hornets also outscored the Bears, 20-10, at the free-throw line.
