PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — With the conference title long out of the picture, Monday night’s contest is for pride.

The Delaware State Hornets visit the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks in the only meeting of the 2017-18 season between the two schools, and both will be looking for a win to avoid the last-place spot. Monday marks the final game for the Hawks in the regular season, and a win would keep them out of the final spot.

As for the Hornets, who enter the day in 13th place of the 13-team league, they are hoping to pick up a win that would move them into a tie with the Hawks for 12th. The win would give Delaware State the 12th spot in the field, keeping them out of a solo last-place finish.

Nobody wants to finish in last place in the regular season standings, which is why both teams will bring their best on Monday night inside the Hytche Athletic Center. The Hawks will be honouring their seniors, and will want to send the pair of Logan McIntosh and Najee Fitzgerald off with a win.

Here’s what you need to know in advance of Monday night’s MEAC battle between Delaware State and Maryland-Eastern Shore.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Charles Williams had himself a stellar freshman campaign in 2016-17 for the Howard Bison, and he hasn’t slowed down in year two.

Add in the play of freshman RJ Cole in 2017-18, and the Bison have arguably the best young tandem in the MEAC, and one that could rival the top pairs from other conferences around the country. When Howard welcomed the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks to town on Monday night, the pair were at their best as the Bison looked for the regular season series sweep of the Hawks.

Back in January, the Bison picked up an 85-75 win over the Hawks in Princess Anne, MD, behind 28 points from Cole.

On Monday, it was the same result for Howard, but by a much larger margin. The Bison used three big runs in the first half to take a 44-16 at the break, and they would go onto win by that same margin of 28 points. Howard cruised to the 84-56 win over Eastern Shore to complete the regular season sweep. Continue reading Howard Routs Maryland-Eastern Shore by 28 Behind Williams, Cole

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — Don’t look now, but the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats are tied atop the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference standings. The Wildcats used a second-half comeback to top the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks on Monday night, 89-84.

It marks the third straight win for Bethune-Cookman after a four game losing streak that brought them to the end of 2017.

In the MEAC preseason poll, the Wildcats were picked to finish ninth out of the 13 teams in the league. Through three games, Bethune-Cookman has proven the voters wrong, and look like a team that could very well take home the conference title come the end of February.

On Monday, senior guard Brandon Tabb had one of his better shooting games of the season. The Preseason First Team All-MEAC selection went 7-of-14 from three point range, finishing with 28 points to lead the Wildcats past the Hawks.

AMES, Iowa — Both the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks and the Iowa State Cyclones came into Wednesday’s tilt short-handed.

The Hawks have been dealing with injuries all season long, and with the recent injury to guard Colen Gaynor, the Hawks were down to just six active scholarship players against the Cyclones. Their freshmen have been thrown into the fire from the get-go this season, and would play a prominent role yet again on Wednesday.

As for the Cyclones, they were down to eight players themselves. Then, graduate transfer Hans Brase suffered an ankle injury in practice on Tuesday, and it was announced shortly before game-time that he wouldn’t be able to go against the Hawks. That left Steve Prohm’s crew with just seven players in uniform.

From start to finish, it was a low scoring affair. The Hawks held Iowa State to their lowest offensive output of the season. It was the third time this season that the Cyclones were held below 60 points, but unlike the previous two times, they managed to come away victorious on Wednesday.

Iowa State took a 17-point lead at half-time, and looked to be in control. But, the Hawks outscored the Cyclones by 11 in the second frame, and made things interesting. When all was said and done, Iowa State held off a late rally from Eastern Shore to notch their ninth straight win by way of a 55-49 decision over the Hawks.
