OMAHA, Neb. — Playing away from home hasn’t been to kind for the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks this season.
In games played away from the Hytche Athletic Center, the Hawks are a combined 1-9. Their lone win came against the Jackson State Tigers in the Emerald Coast Classic. Eastern Shore went 1-1 in the event, and while they don’t count as road games due to the event being a neutral site, they weren’t playing on their home floor.
On Friday, the Hawks were in Omaha to take on the Creighton Bluejays for the first time in program history. The odds weren’t in their favour, but the Hawks were looking to put forth a strong effort to try and end their three game losing streak.
Unfortunately for the Hawks, the Bluejays put the game away early in the first half, thanks in large part to strong shooting from all areas of the floor.
As a team, Creighton shot over 52% from the floor, while holding Eastern Shore to just 23.6% shooting on the night. The Bluejays cruised to the 87-36 win over the Hawks, extending the Hawks’ losing streak to four games in the process.
