The Coppin State men's basketball team snapped a seven-game losing streak by outlasting Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opponent South Carolina State, 75-69, Monday night. A little more than 12 hours later, coach Fang Mitchell didn't even try to downplay the importance of the victory. “It was as big as it could come,” he said Tuesday morning. “Being in that seven-game losing streak, you worry about people losing faith or starting to have doubt in their ability. We needed a win, and we needed one bad, and I think it did a lot for their confidence.

The outcome was familiar, but the product wasn't.Morgan State lost another game yesterday, 21-6, to South Carolina State before 7,231 at Hughes Stadium, but the winless Golden Bears displayed proficiency both blocking and tackling, lost arts in the program in recent years.Subtract a handful of Morgan State mistakes, and the Bulldogs might not have maintained their status as the lone unbeaten in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.South Carolina State is 5-0 overall, 2-0 in the MEAC. Morgan State is 0-6, including 0-3 in the conference, and the Golden Bears of first-year coach Ricky Diggs needed even a moral victory after being bombed by a combined 113-28 in their previous two outings, both on the road against nationally ranked opponents.

When a team shoots as poorly as Morgan State does, it had better play stellar defense or it's in for a long season.Morgan continued to learn that lesson last night, shooting just 35 percent and falling to South Carolina State, 72-56, in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener for both teams before 448 at Hill Field House. The Bears (1-11) lost their eighth straight, and South Carolina State (5-4) showed why it was the coaches' preseason pick to win the MEAC.The Bears are shooting well under 40 percent as a team and have no player averaging in double digits.

It wasn't as painful as last year's 50-point loss on the road, but Morgan State was again outclassed in another season-ending loss to South Carolina State. The Bears bungled their way to a 41-16 loss to the Bulldogs at Hughes Stadium last night. Morgan State committed five turnovers - two in the span of three first-quarter touches - and had a pair of ignominious season highs. The defense surrendered 419 yards and the Bears were flagged for 13 penalties, one for having 12 men on the field.
