MUNICE, In. — If all goes according to plan, the Ball State Cardinals could very well have the best front court rotation in the Mid American Conference come the 2019-20 season.

The Cardinals already boast a pair of the top forwards in the conference in Tahjai Teague and Kyle Mallers. Both will be juniors in 2018-19, and are coming off of breakout seasons. Teague was second on the team in both scoring and rebounds with an average of 12.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per game, while Mallers posted 9.6 points and 4.9 rebounds of his own.

Add in Zach Gunn, who posted 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds per game as a freshman in 25 games, and the front court rotation looks strong heading into the 2018-19 season.

On Thursday afternoon, the Cardinals added another talented forward to the mix for the 2019-20 season. Freshman forward Miryne Thomas committed to the Cardinals after one season with the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks. Continue reading Ball State Lands Maryland Eastern Shore Transfer Miryne Thomas

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

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The race for the regular season crown in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference is shaping up to be a three-horse race between the Savannah State TigersNorth Carolina A&T Aggies, and the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats.

On Saturday, the Wildcats were looking to keep pace with the Tigers and Aggies atop the league, as they came into the day in third spot. Bethune-Cookman welcomed the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks to town, who were looking to play the role of spoiler on the road.

It was the second of two regular season meetings between the two programs in 2017-18. Back on January 8th, the Wildcats picked up an 89-84 win over the Hawks in Princess Anne, MD.

Eastern Shore was looking for a bit of redemption, but the Wildcats had other ideas.

The Hawks trailed for most of the day, but managed to get within two points at the midway point of the second half. From there, Bethune-Cookman kicked things into high gear, pulling away for the 87-67 victory over Maryland-Eastern Shore to keep pace atop the MEAC standings.

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — The weather outside is frightful, at least for some on the East Coast of the United States right now.

A winter storm led to the closure of some schools on Friday, and some college basketball games have been rescheduled due to the high amounts of snow that have fallen in recent days. When you add in the wind chill and the cold weather warnings, it makes for a frigid time outdoors.

Luckily, the heaters will be on inside Hytche Arena on Saturday afternoon for college basketball action, as the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks host the Hampton Pirates in MEAC play. Both teams come in looking for their first conference win, and Saturday marks the MEAC opener for the Pirates.

The 2017-18 season is the last for Hampton in the MEAC, as they will be making a move to the Big South Conference come the 2018-19 campaign. A win over the Hawks on the road would be a great way to kick off their final season in the league as they have their sights set on the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Here’s what you need to know in advance of Saturday’s tilt between Hampton and Maryland Eastern Shore. Continue reading Maryland Eastern Shore Basketball: Previewing the Hampton Pirates

BALTIMORE, Md. — Wednesday marks the beginning of conference play for teams in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), and what a time it is!

The MEAC is often the butt end of jokes around the college basketball landscape, as it is regarded as one of the worst conferences in the country. Entering Wednesday night, all 13 teams in the conference have sub-.500 records, and nine teams have double digit losses after non-conference play. The Coppin State Eagles are still looking for their first win of the year (0-15).

With all the negativity surrounding the conference, there is plenty of talent to be had across the board. Star freshmen emerged early in the 2017-18 season, and the top scoring guard from last season has picked up right where he left off, despite playing just three games this year.

On Wednesday, a pair of those star freshmen lead their team into battle against a team with the top inside-out duo in the conference. Freshmen Cameron Bacote and Miryne Thomas lead the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks into Baltimore for a Wednesday night match-up with Tiwian Kendley and the Morgan State Bears.

The Bears are looking to end a seven game losing streak, while the Hawks are looking to build off a win in their last outing. Both teams were projected to finish in the top six in the preseason polls, so Wednesday night will be a test for both programs.

Here’s what you need to know in advance of the first of two meetings this season between Maryland Eastern Shore and Morgan State.
