Some time before 4 p.m. tomorrow, when the University of Maryland Eastern Shore prepares for the tip-off against Morgan State at Hill Field House, Thomas Trotter Sr. will have made a transformation. Left in the locker room will be the attentive, gentle father. Out will come the no-nonsense, unrelenting coach of UMES. Though by no means easy for Trotter, such transformations have become commonplace for the second-year coach of the Hawks (5-8, 2-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference). The team is led by point guard Thomas "Tee" Trotter Jr., the coach's son. After making names for themselves in New Mexico, the two decided to make the trek to Princess Anne.

After four largely unsuccessful seasons, the UMES men's and women's basketball programs are headed in different directions. The university announced yesterday that the contract of men's coach Thomas Trotter will not be renewed when it expires June 30, and that women's coach Surina Dixon has resigned, effective on the same date. Athletic director Nelson E. Townsend said a search for replacements will begin immediately. Trotter's teams compiled a 36-78 record, including 28-46 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, over four years and never finished higher than fifth (his first season)

RICHMOND, Va. - One of the greatest careers in UMES history ended on an individual high note and a team low note last night. Tee Trotter scored 36 points to finish with 1,923, second in UMES history, but received almost no offensive help and top-seeded South Carolina State trounced the Hawks, 84-56, in the quarterfinals of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament. The game was typical of so many others during the senior's four years at the Princess Anne school when he had to shoulder a heavy load.

RICHMOND, Va. - The lesser lights turned on for the UMES men yesterday at the Arthur Ashe Center. With high-scoring guards Tee Trotter and Aaron Wellington held without a field goal in the second half, the Hawks' inside players took command of the scoring and rebounding to pace a 51-50 squeaker over Bethune-Cookman in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference's play-in game. "If you had told me Aaron and Tee weren't going to get a basket in the second half and we would win, I wouldn't have believed it," said UMES coach Thomas Trotter.

Will Lamont Pennick forget his first game as a head coach? Probably not, and for that, he has Thomas Trotter Jr. to thank. Pennick led Morgan State against UMES last night in place of suspended coach Chris Fuller. Trotter, of UMES, put his personal stamp on the coach's debut early, scoring 19 of his 28 points in the first half of a 72-53 victory for the Hawks. From Trotter, a freshman from Las Cruces, N.M., the bulk of the damage came in a four-minute stretch in which he scored 14 points.

RICHMOND, Va. - The Arthur Ashe Center is turning into Heartbreak Hotel for the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore men. Last season, Tee Trotter struck for a then-career high 40 points, but the Hawks couldn't get out of the play-in round. Last night, UMES couldn't stop opposing center James Wilkinson during the game's crucial stretch, and Trotter and Aaron Wellington missed three-point tries at the end that would have forced an overtime. Howard held on for a 71-69 victory to advance to the quarterfinals.

The Coppin State men's basketball team has been emotionally ravaged since the death of head coach Fang Mitchell's wife, Yvonne, last week. Last night, only hours after the first lady of the Eagles was buried in New Jersey, the players went all out to provide the absent Mitchell with a victory at the Coppin Center. It wasn't to be in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game against Maryland-Eastern Shore, a team that has been an upstart in the league. Coppin toiled hard, but crashed in the final five minutes and lost a 64-59 decision in a game postponed from Monday night.

Sophomore forward Renneika Razor scored a career-high 25 points to lead Maryland (8-2) past visiting Lafayette, 80-61, last night in women's college basketball at Cole Field House. Junior Marche Strickland added 19 for the Terps (8-2). Razor hit all seven of her field-goal attempts in the first half to send the Terps into the locker room with a 42-25 advantage. Lafayette (4-6) whittled away at the Terps' lead in the second half, sparked by 14 points from guard Jen Bayer. But the Leopards, who were pressured into 26 turnovers for the game, would get no closer than eight points.
