PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — For the first time since the 2017-18 season opener, the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks were back inside the Hytche Center.

The Hawks went 1-5 on their six game road trip, with all five losses coming by at least 26 points. Their lone win came against the Jackson State Tigers in the Emerald Coast Classic, 66-63.

On Saturday, the Hawks took on the American University Eagles for the third season in a row. It’s the first meeting on the Hawks’ home floor. Eastern Shore won the first meeting back in the 2015-16 season, 79-64, with the Eagles picking up a 61-58 win last year.

Both teams came into Saturday with two wins on the year, and were looking to inch closer to the .500 mark as they opened the month of December. While the Eagles held the lead for most of the afternoon, they were unable to hold off the Hawks down the stretch.

Timely free throw shooting from Ahmad Frost and Miryne Thomas in the closing minutes sealed the deal for Eastern Shore, who came away with the 74-70 win over the Eagles. Continue reading Maryland Eastern Shore Uses Second Half Comeback for 74-70 Win Over American

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Saturday afternoon, the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks continued their six-game road swing with game against the Georgetown Hoyas.

The Hawks have had an extra day of rest, as their game against the St. Bonaventure Bonnies from Wednesday was cancelled due to power failures inside the Reilly Center. That game was rescheduled for November 20th at 7:00pm EST.

Georgetown and Maryland Eastern Shore last met in the 2015-16 season, with the Hoyas picking up a 68-49 victory over the Hawks inside Capital One Arena.

On Saturday, the Hawks were looking to get back on track after suffering a lopsided defeat at the hands of the Maryland Terrapins in their previous game. Logan McIntosh was still out of the lineup for the Hawks against the Hoyas, leaving the Hawks short-handed once again.

Eastern Shore was simply overwhelmed by the Hoyas from the outset of the game. Georgetown opened the day on a 10-0 run, holding the Hawks scoreless for over three minutes in the process. They had runs of eight and nine points in the first half, and took a 21-point lead into the locker room.

Georgetown had five players score in double-figures on the day, and the Hoyas cruised to the 83-57 win over Maryland Eastern Shore. Continue reading Slow start dooms Maryland Eastern Shore on the road at Georgetown

CANMORE, Alta. — With all of the injuries that the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks have had to endure leading up to the 2017-18 season and through the first two games, they needed someone new to step up and take on a starring role.

Enter freshman guard Cameron Bacote, who has more than risen to the occasion through the Hawks’ first two games of the year.

The 6’3” guard from Hampton, VA came to the Hawks after a stellar career at Bethel High School. He recorded more than 1,000 points over his collegiate career, and averaged 20 points per game during his senior season. Hus AAU team, Team Loaded VA (Richmond), advanced to the Adidas Summer Championship Final Four.

Bacote has a ton of talent on the hardwood, and that was on full display over the Hawks’ first two games of the season. The Hawks earned a split over the weekend, picking up a win over Valley Forge on Friday before falling to the Maryland Terrapins on Sunday night.

In both games, Bacote led the attack for the Hawks, and the fans recognized that on Sunday night and into Monday morning.

For his efforts over his first two games in the NCAA, fans selected Maryland Eastern Shore guard Cameron Bacote as the College Court Report Fan-Voted Freshman of the Week(end) for November 10-12, 2017!

Bacote earned the most votes in our weekly Twitter poll. The other weekly candidates were Zack Bryant (UAB), Kellan Grady (Davidson), and Abayomi Iyiola (Stetson). Continue reading College Court Report Fan-Voted Freshman of the Week: Cameron Bacote, Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — The depth for the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks was tested on Sunday night, and it didn’t go well.

Eastern Shore hasn’t been dealt the best of hands to start the 2017-18 season. The list of injuries keeps growing with each passing day, and the depth of the team will be tested all season long. On Sunday, the Hawks took on the Maryland Terrapins, a day after news broke that guard Ryan Andino would be sitting out 2017-18 as a redshirt.

The Hawks went into battle with the Terrapins without another guard in the lineup, as Logan McIntosh missed the game due to an injury sustained in the Hawks’ season-opening win over Valley Forge on Friday night.

With the Hawks battling injuries, Eastern Shore’s six-game road swing didn’t get off on the right foot. Maryland seized control from the outset, and never took their foot off the gas.

The Terrapins shot 61.1% from the floor as a team on Sunday night, and they cruised to the 96-43 victory over the Hawks, moving to 2-0 on the year in the process. Continue reading Terrapins cruise past Maryland Eastern Shore, 96-43

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — The list of players who won’t suit up for the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks added another name on Saturday afternoon.

Guard Dontae Caldwell and forward Isaac Taylor are expected to miss the entire 2017-18 season due to injuries. Both were expected to be focal points on both ends of the court for the Hawks this season.

Now, on Saturday afternoon, senior guard Ryan Andino took to his Twitter account to update his friends, family, and fans on what the future holds for him this season.

Andino had been battling an ailment of his own, and was rumoured to miss ‘a handful of games’ to open the season. Andino put to rest all of the rumours on Saturday, announcing that he would be sitting out the 2017-18 season as a redshirt.
