For the first time since Todd Bozeman elevated Morgan State to prominence in mid-major basketball, the Bears are no longer the team to beat in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. When they open defense of their MEAC title against North Carolina A&T in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Thursday at 8 p.m., the fourth-seeded Bears will carry the school's first three-game losing streak since Bozeman arrived five seasons ago. Any number of teams will vie for Morgan's title this week, including No. 1-seed Bethune-Cookman (19-11)

After Coppin State lost the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament championship and a bid to the NCAA tournament by three points, coach Derek Brown made the walk upstairs to the concourse level of Norfolk Scope Arena in to meet family and friends.  He looked around the crowded scene and found two of his former players: Sherrie Tucker and Shalamar Oakley, with whom he won league titles in 2005, 2006 and 2008. He approached them, then called over Larissa Carter, who had just played her last game for the Eagles, a demoralizing 50-47 loss to Hampton.  “Even though this group didn't win a championship, I love these girls just as much as you guys,” Brown said to his former players.  Part of it is because of the fight the team showed all season.

By the time Coppin State completed the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular season last week, coach Fang Mitchell no longer knew what the Eagles' best defense was, only that it had to get better for this week's tournament. Traditionally a man-to-man team, Coppin used a second-half zone to erase a big deficit and get within striking distance of Morgan State in the final minute before losing the finale. It was enough to make Mitchell reconsider strategy. "I think we can play both" defenses, Mitchell said, "but I think the team wants to play man-to-man, and that's where the problem is. That might not be what is good for them.

Poor shooting and defensive woes doomed the top-seeded Navy women in their Patriot League tournament semifinal at home Monday night against No. 5 seed Holy Cross, as the Midshipmen lost, 75-56. The Midshipmen (24-7) allowed five Crusaders (20-11) to score in double digits and shot 33.8 percent from the field and 17.9 percent from 3-point range. Forward Jade Geif's 20 points paced Navy on offense, but her team-high performance wasn't enough. Audrey Bauer had 14 points and Alix Membreno added 10 points, but no other Midshipman recorded more than five points.

Morgan State got a tournament-type atmosphere in its regular-season finale last night and squeezed out a gritty 68-62 victory over Coppin State in a game that closed down Coppin Center. A near-capacity crowd watched Morgan sweep the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference season series from its crosstown rivals and notch its second straight 20-win season under coach Todd Bozeman. Reggie Holmes (St. Frances) had game highs of 23 points and 12 rebounds, and it was barely enough to keep the Bears (20-11, 13-3)

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Twice in the regular season, Coppin State hung tough before falling to Delaware State, the class of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Last night the Hornets showed why this is their third straight season as regular season champion and top tournament seed, however, as they used 15 straight points that spanned halftime to rout the Eagles, 68-49, at the RBC Center. It was Coppin State's most lop-sided loss ever in the MEAC tournament, and its worst to a conference foe since Feb. 4, 2002, when it fell, 78-51, at Hampton.

The rout was over, and the race was on between Kyle Locke and Allen Watson.After an 87-54 pounding of Howard last night that marked the final home game for Coppin State's only seniors, they --ed to the center circle, knelt and kissed the Eagle logo. 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.

NORFOLK, Va. -- In a season greatly affected by injuries and turmoil, Larry Yarbray admits it hasn't been a smooth ride for Coppin State.A senior guard from Chester, Pa., Yarbray is the only Eagles player who started two years ago, when they won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament and went to the NCAA tournament. One game into this season, Yarbray's attitude got him suspended for three games by coach Fang Mitchell. He also missed three games in January because of ankle problems that still are bothering him.All but three Coppin State players have "DNP" -- Did Not Play -- somewhere in their season's statistics report, but now it appears the Eagles are of sound mind and body.

Morgan State lost a game that coach Todd Bozeman says the Bears shouldn't have on Monday. They came out flat against Delaware State (8-18, 4-9 MEAC), a team they took too lightly. “[My players] realize they let one slip away on Monday,” said Bozeman, whose team is 11-14 (9-4) with three regular-season games reamaining. “They realize that. That is probably an eye-opener for them. It may be good to get us refocused as we finish up the conference schedule.” For now, Bozeman warns that the conference tournament is still a long way off, and the Bears need to stay focused on getting better.

Coppin State's Jordan Lee didn't play the first time the Eagles played Morgan State this season, and he was scoreless in five minutes of the first half Thursday night. The second half, it turned out, was all he needed. Lee, Coppin's version of Instant Offense, erupted for 19 second-half points and helped deliver a 73-60 victory over the rival Bears in front of an announced - and raucous - 3,118. The victory sends the Eagles (16-13, 11-5) into the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament as the third seed.
