Editor's note: A Quaker boy is none too excited when a sea gull befriends him. But he changes his mind after helping the injured bird.Wherever Obadiah went, a sea gull was following him. It followed him all the way to the candle maker's, and it was waiting for him when he came out of the shop.When he was sent to the wharf for a fresh codfish, it hopped along behind him.And at night when he went to bed, he could see it from his window. There it was, perched on the chimney of the shed, facing into the wind.

In a home finale that was symbolic of its topsy-turvy season Morgan State overcame injury and a crowd disturbance to beat Howard University, 77-69, before 6,849 at Hill Field House last night.The victory gave the Bears (9-7, 9-16) a third-place seeding in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament Thursday in Norfolk, Va. They'll face UMES, a team they've beaten twice this season.Even though Howard finished the regular season at 9-17, last night's game was anything but a lock for Morgan.

There was no fighting this time around, there were no ejections and the game was not suspended. With Morgan State facing North Carolina A&T with third place in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference on the line, what the fans at Hill Field House got was a game played in a tournament-like atmosphere.Unfortunately for the home fans, there was nothing to cheer at the end. After blowing an 11-point first-half lead and staging a furious comeback in the second half, Morgan ended up with a 71-70 loss that knocked it out of third place in the MEAC.

LANDOVER -- In a season in which Morgan State has yet to shoot at a friendly basket, the Bears were reminded yesterday of just how rough the road can be.No. 11 Georgetown went to the foul line for an arm-wearying 60 shots and made 42 of them, both school records, at the Capital Centre.But the Hoyas (5-0) were extended to the final five minutes before securing a 103-85 victory over Morgan (0-6) in front of 9,752.It was a game of diminishing returns for the Bears, who won't play a home game for nearly another month.
