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.
OMAHA, Neb. — On Friday night, the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks make their first-ever trip to Omaha, Nebraska to take on the Creighton Bluejays and their high-octane offense.
The contest marks the fourth game of a six-game road trip for the Hawks, who have lost the first three contests, all by at least 22 points. Maryland Eastern Shore has been short-handed all season due to injuries, and the Bluejays will look to take full advantage of that from the get-go on Friday inside CenturyLink Center Omaha.
On paper, the Bluejays come in as heavy favourites, and for good reason. If the Hawks want to have any shot at pulling off the massive upset, they need to have a perfect night on both ends of the floor. A perfect night almost never happens, and the odds are stacked against the Hawks, who have just one win in their last six outings.
