The Morgan State Bears and the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks meet in college basketball action from the Hytche Athletic Center on Monday night.

The Morgan State Bears will look to build on an 82-70 win over Delaware State last time out. De’Torrion Ware leads the Bears in scoring with 11.5 PPG while Keith McGee has 10.9 PPG and Malik Miller has 10.8 PPG in six games this season. Lagio Grantsaan has 9.6 PPG with a team-high 5.6 RPG while Sherwyn Devonish leads the Bears in assists with 3.5 APG this season. As a team, Morgan State is averaging 76.9 PPG on 43.3% shooting from the field, 31% from three and 68% from the foul line while allowing 74.6 PPG on 44.8% shooting from the field and 37.6% from three this season.

The Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks will look to build on their 64-61 win over Coppin State last time out. Dom London leads the Hawks in scoring with 11.1 PPG and Zion Styles has 10.4 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for UMES up to this point in the season. De’Shawn Phillip has 9.5 PPG with 4.6 RPG and a team-high 3.2 APG while Nathaniel Pollard Jr. has a team-high 6.1 RPG to lead the Hawks on the boards as well this season. As a team, Maryland-Eastern Shore is averaging 68.1 PPG on 40.7% shooting from the field, 31.7% from three and 65.9% from the foul line while allowing 66 PPG on 42.5% shooting from the field and 33% from three this season.

Morgan State is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record. Maryland Eastern Shore is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.

I get why the Hawks are favored because they’re at home, but that’s about where it ends. The Hawks haven’t covered a game against D-I opposition this season and all of a sudden we have to lay a bucket with them? I’m not buying it. Morgan State’s been scoring fairly well in their last few games and I think they just blow past UMES and get the win and cover in this one.
