The gym is small, the crowds subdued. About half the seats are filled each game. And the place is nearly bare of banners trumpeting the basketball success at Coppin State College.Daunting, the Coppin Center is not. It seats 3,000. There are college arenas 10 times its size and high school gyms with more pizazz. Not that Coppin's players seem to care. The Eagles have won 31 straight games at home, a streak that leads the nation.It has been three years since Coppin slipped on its own floor, and the Eagles have mopped up ever since.

It was a tribute to a 41-game win streak at the Coppin Center, a fourth straight Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular-season title and the hours that they've invested in those accomplishments.Watson, the point guard otherwise known as "Smooth," was academically ineligible as a freshman, and went 31-0 at the Coppin Center.

Ahead is this week's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament, but looming ever closer on the horizon is a bright, sunny vision of the future. Literally bright and sunny. What excites the Coppin folks most about the new arena rising along Gwynns Falls Parkway? "Windows," said men's assistant coach and former player Larry Tucker. It's a fairly standard amenity, one that the coaching offices in Coppin Center don't have.
