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.

The Tigers dominated the second overtime, scoring the first seven points to take a 74-67 lead.

The only two teams with undefeated records in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference this season -- Morgan State and Savannah State -- won't play each other until possibly the conference tournament. With 13 teams in the league and limited room in the MEAC schedule, each conference team plays 11 opponents at least once and five opponents twice in home-and-away games. That leaves each team failing to face one league opponent, and for the Bears (6-10 overall and 4-0 in the MEAC), that means no games with Savannah State (7-12, 5-0)

Morgan State @N.C. Central Saturday, 1 p.m. Radio: 88.9FM Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley and running back Travis Davidson had an enjoyable homecoming of sorts Saturday night at the expense of Savannah State. After a sluggish first half, Morgan State (3-2, 2-0) exploded in the third quarter and coasted to a 45-6 win over the host Tigers (0-5, 0-3) in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game before an announced 1,978. The Bears led 14-6 at the half, but used a 38-yard kickoff return by Tyrone Hendrix to jump-start a 24-point outburst in the third quarter.

The combination of an opponent that had never beaten them, a huge and enthusiastic crowd, the memory of a stinging defeat the previous week and a head coach who directed the offense from the press box proved the proper mixture for the Morgan State Bears on Saturday. They broke open a tight game with two quick third-quarter touchdown strikes and proceeded to pummel Savannah State, 44-17, to delight a homecoming throng of an announced 14,356 watching in ideal football weather at Hughes Stadium.

Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley has challenged his team with the motto "Fact or Fiction," believing the time has come for the Bears to make their presence felt. In a penalty-marred opener last night at Hughes Stadium, his players' response was mostly factual. Savannah State offered little opposition as Morgan State rolled to a 47-7 victory, its fifth straight in the series. Morgan State has outscored the Tigers 185-53, including 147-47 in the past three meetings. Fresh Bears jerseys were all over the field in the fourth quarter when backup kicker James Meade made a 28-yard field goal for the game's final points.

The Morgan State men's basketball team's bid for a 3-0 start in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference will unfold Saturday, but it won't be easy. Norfolk State, which will host the Bears (4-10 overall and 2-0 in the league), is 10-7 overall, but sits atop the conference with a perfect 4-0 record. Saturday's contest pits two of the MEAC's four undefeated teams (Hampton and Savannah State at 3-0 each are the other two) against each other, but Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said every league game is crucial.

Homecoming was nothing short of a smashing success yesterday at Morgan State, but Bears coach Stanley Mitchell still found some things to fuss about. The offense was a bit sluggish, the defense gave up too many rushing yards, and he said his team would certainly have to play better in the future for more wins. This all came after a thorough 26-0 victory over Savannah State that not only gave the Bears (2-4) consecutive wins for the first time since the third game of the 1997 season, but also their first shutout since a 29-0 blanking of Cheyney in 1996.
