Thu, 08 Mar 2018 02:22:00 EDT

The last thing the University of Maryland Eastern Shore wanted to happen in Wednesday's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament second-round contest against defending champion Bethune-Cookman (24-5) was to get off to a slow start.Then, less than three minutes into the game, the Hawks were staring at a 14-0 deficit. Eastern Shore (11-20) battled back to take their first lead of the game, 30-29, seconds before the half. But, the Wildcats then used a 16-0 run to begin the third quarter burying the Hawks again.The fourth quarter saw another comeback as The Shore would cut the lead to five with 23 second left despite seeing three starters foul out, but ended up on the wrong end of a 71-65 final.

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 22:04:00 EDT

If there is one thing that the University of Maryland Eastern Shore has learned about matching up with Bethune-Cookman (23-5) through two meetings this season, it's that the Wildcats will not give you anything.Eastern Shore (11-19) was within one point of the Wildcats with just minutes remaining in the fourth quarter at Bethune, but a pair of empty possessions on offense and back-to-back 3's by the Wildcats put them on a path to a 73-61 victory.Earlier in the season at home, the Hawks managed just six points in the final quarter at home while the Bethune-Cookman scored eight. But that Wildcat total was enough to escape the William P. Hytche Athletic Center with a 55-48.Now the Hawks will lace ‘em up one more time against The Wildcats in the second round of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament.
