In the 1990s, the route to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference men's basketball championship almost always traveled through Baltimore. Along West North Avenue. Directly to Coppin State College. Six miles to the northeast, Morgan State usually didn't offer much resistance to MEAC opponents. Coppin State had supplanted North Carolina A&T as the dominant MEAC force, winning outright or sharing nine regular-season titles and capturing the league's postseason tournament three times. But the power began to shift southward.

Just when things were looking particularly bad for the North Carolina A&T basketball team, they got a bit worse last night when the Aggies visited the Coppin Center.Forced to play without three players suspended for their contribution to an ugly fight Monday night with Morgan State, the Aggies were drubbed by Coppin State, 85-51, in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference contest."We just haven't played well in '93," said A&T coach Don Corbett. "We played like hell in '92, but '93 just hasn't done it for us."

Coppin State's home winning streak is safe, but only after the Eagles sweated out their closest call since they began their dominant run at the Coppin Center. The Eagles started poorly against UMES last night, then spent more than 33 minutes catching the Hawks. And they needed a heroic final three minutes from senior guard Sidney Goodman to escape defeat.With UMES collapsing around forward Stephen Stewart -- who had scored his game-high 19 points -- Goodman hit four consecutive shots down the stretch to lift Coppin State to a hard-earned, 58-54 victory before 1,528.

Streaks. It's what Coppin State's basketball team is all about.The Eagles won their 27th straight Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game, stretched their home winning streak to 17 and their current winning streak to eight by defeating Howard, 72-60, at Pullen Gymnasium last night.But Howard coach Butch Beard was not overly impressed."I'm guaranteeing a win back at our place Saturday, and you can print it," the former NBA guard said. "They're not that good. Everyone is afraid of Coppin. They're a nice team that takes advantage of opportunities, but, believe me, they're beatable."

Until recently, Coppin State had a tendency to play down to the level of its inferior Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference competition before putting away victories.However, with the MEAC tournament approaching, not to mention an anticipated berth in the NCAA tournament, the Eagles have been taking care of business more efficiently lately.Bethune-Cookman was the latest MEAC punching bag to get bruised early and often by the Eagles.Last night, Coppin State pretty much had its way with the overmatched Wildcats as the Eagles broke open a respectable game in the second half, then cruised to a 95-76 victory before 725 at the Coppin Center.
