    Morgan State (2-7, 1-0), who was tabbed pre-season as a second-place finisher in the MEAC, led 37-29 at the break.

    Black, the Bears leading scorer (17.8 ppg) accented a second half 48-32 lead with a steal and a two-handed slam at 16:59 and then scored on another dunk two minutes later to go up 53-35.
