Even when a team's record is 4-23, something about Senior Night seems to inspire those being honored. That was the case at Hill Field House last night, as Morgan State seniors Jimmy Fields and Ronnie Van Hook were important cogs in the Bears' late-blooming offense. The two were part of a three-man show by local high school graduates, Fields from Gilman and Van Hook from Lake Clifton, plus 6-foot-7 sophomore Brandon Reece from St. Frances. Each scored 20 points, as the Bears (5-23, 5-13)

Morgan State lost to Bethune-Cookman last night, 69-64, its late rally not enough to overcome a poor start in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference basketball game. Freddie Cole scored 18 points for the Wildcats (11-11, 10-3), who picked up their fifth win in the past six contests and remained in second place in the conference. For Morgan State (4-19, 4-9), not much was different from any other night except the absence of Jimmy Fields and Ronnie Van Hook, ejected along with Bethune's Larry Gilbert after a first-half scuffle.

In better times, Morgan State coach Chris Fuller might be able to laugh at his team's 6-for-26 shooting from three-point range, or at Norfolk State's 14 steals, 37 trips to the free-throw line and 63 percent second-half shooting. For now, however, the foibles constitute the price of progress for the youthful Bears team, which dropped to 2-13 and 2-3 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference yesterday with a 78-70 loss to the Spartans at Hill Field House. "We are playing a lot of people who didn't play a lot last year," Fuller said.

LOS ANGELES -- It had the potential to be ugly from the start but even this was far worse than anything coach Chris Fuller and his Morgan State squad could have imagined.No. 12-ranked UCLA dropped the bomb on the visiting Bears en route to a 100-39 victory in front of 6,531 fans at Pauley Pavilion last night."This one got away from us," Fuller said. "They beat the [heck] out of us."Morgan State (0-4) beat itself too, by committing 28 turnovers and grabbing zero offensive rebounds in the first half.

Coming off its emotionally charged near-upset of Michigan last week, it was natural to expect Towson University's basketball team to experience a letdown against Morgan State last night.But no one could anticipate how the Tigers would have to struggle before putting away the winless Bears, 62-48, at the Towson Center.Towson (2-1) displayed little of the crispness or cohesiveness on offense it exhibited against the Wolverines while being harassed into 29 turnovers by the Bears' scrambling defense.
