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.

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
