Coppin hopes to bounce back Saturday against Norfolk State

Posted on 21 February 2014 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE – The Coppin State men’s basketball team knows it has at least four games remaining: Three home regular season contests and at minimum, one game, in next month’s Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) tournament.

Anything beyond four games will be strictly up to how the Eagles perform over the next two weeks beginning Saturday afternoon when they host Norfolk State at 4:00 p.m. in a MEAC contest at the Physical Education Complex. The Eagles lost 82-71 to the Spartans on Jan. 20 and would like nothing more than to deliver a punishing payback.

Coppin State (9-17 overall, 6-7 MEAC) confidently believes that it will be the last team standing from the conference in March. The Eagles are talented and skilled. They have a road win at Hampton. Coppin State has also let a few late leads dissipate into defeats. So the Eagles won’t be an easy out for whoever they play. They had Morgan State wobbling for a period at raucous Hill Field House and enjoyed a seven-point second half lead before falling, 78-69 Wednesday night.

“The season hasn’t turned out the way we exactly wanted it to,” Coppin State junior forward Brandon St. Louis said. “We definitely believe our last three games are winnable. We are focused on finishing strong and heading into the tournament with momentum.”

Of course, once the madness of March commences, anything can happen. Nobody knows that better than Coppin State’s legendary head coach Ron “Fang” Mitchell, who has built his share of championship teams. He has witnessed more funny things and craziness during his 28 years at the helm of the Eagles than every Kevin Hart movie combined.

In 2008, the Eagles became the first team in the history of the NCAA championship to qualify for the tournament with 20 losses after winning four games in four days by a combined six points to win the MEAC tournament. That Coppin State squad led by Tywain McKee overcame a 4-19 start to the season to get to the tournament.

So things may not look good presently for the Eagles, who are riding a three-game losing streak, but the MEAC tournament offers hope and a fresh opportunity to experience that championship feeling. Anything is possible.

“We know we can compete against everybody in our conference,” St. Louis said. “It’s tough right now, but the good thing is everybody is still working hard and keeping a positive attitude. The whole team knows and feels that we are better than our record.”

St. Louis has had bursts of brilliance this season for the Eagles. He snatched eight rebounds against Morgan State Wednesday night. Earlier this year in a 91-71 win over UMBC, St. Louis was large and in charge for the Eagles as he stuffed the shat sheet with 12 points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots.

He is quite simply a player that every team needs. St. Louis doesn’t need his name in lights. He enjoys during the dirty work, battling for loose balls and keeping possessions alive. In 22 games, St. Louis averages 4.9 rebounds per game, which is second on the team.

The Eagles have plenty of scorers led by senior Michael Murray, who averages 14.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. Both marks are team highs for Murray, who posted his fifth double-double of the season against Morgan State with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Senior guardAndre Armstrong is second on the team in scoring with a 12.4 point per game scoring average. Sophomore guard Sterling Smith contributes 11.2 points per outing for outing. Armstrong and Smith have combined to make 97 3-pointers.

St. Louis along with Murray, Arnold Fripp, Charles Ieans and many others will be counted on heavily to rebound. Former Laker and Knick coach Pat Riley always preached to his teams, “no rebounds, no rings.” The Eagles were challenged against Morgan State to do a better job of rebounding after the Florida A&M game. The Eagles were outrebounded by FAMU, 54-28. They improved significantly against Morgan State, only losing the board battle, 38-37.

The Eagles will need to be at their rebounding best against the Spartans, who are second in the MEAC in rebounding margin (+2.1 per game). Norfolk State won the rebounding battle, 42-31, against the Eagles in the first contest.

“We’re looking to try to rebound better against Norfolk this time,” St. Louis said. “The mindset is for us to just stay aggressive, get good position and go for every ball that goes up like it’s going to be a missed shot.”

Coppin State knows it has a great opportunity in front of it to fire a shot heard around the MEAC if it can trip up Norfolk State. The Eagles biggest win this year was against Hampton on the road. A few weeks later, the Eagles had the Pirates beat at home on Feb. 1 before falling in overtime.

Norfolk State dropped a 79-73 overtime decision to Hampton last Saturday. Senior Pendarvis Williams led all scorers with 18 points to go along with eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. Senior Brandon Goode added 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting, 10 rebounds and tied his career high with six blocks. Jamel Fuentes totaled 15 points, five assists and four rebounds, and senior Riley Maye also reached double figures with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting to lead the Spartans. For the game, the Spartans hit 24-of-63 (38.1 percent) after shooting 48 percent in the first half. HU connected on 24-of-58 (41.4 percent). The Spartans also hit 8-of-23 (34.8 percent) from 3-point range.

Malcolm Hawksins (16.7 points per game) and Williams (15.9) are sixth and eighth, respectively in the MEAC in scoring. Goode is the Spartans leading rebounder at 6.9 per game As a team Norfolk State leads the MEAC in scoring offense (74.2 points per game) and field goal percentage (46.8). The Spartans were the preseason MEAC favorites to win the conference. They are currently in third place, two games behind North Carolina Central, who has an 11-1 conference record.

For St. Louis, who will earn his accounting in May after completing three years of college, he is not taking the Eagles’ remaining games for granted.

“Graduating in three years means a lot to me because it shows that I was able to set a goal for myself and I was able to attain it,” St. Louis said. “It was a hard goal, but I was able make things happen and it just worked out for me. I feel very blessed every time I step out on the court. There aren’t a lot of people who get the chance to play Division I ball. I know a lot of people try. Every chance I get to play; I try to make the most of my opportunity. That’s what we’re looking to do as a team in these final three games.”

Coppin returns home Saturday to face Towson

Posted on 03 January 2014 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE, Md. – After spending the last four weeks on the road, out of the country and in the home state of LeBron James, the Coppin State University men’s basketball team is looking forward to starting a three-game homestand against cross-town rival Towson University Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. inside of the cozy Physical Education Complex.

Nobody would mind if the Eagle players clicked the heels of their sneakers three times and said, “There’s no place like home,” like Diana Ross did while sporting stylish silver high heels in “The Wiz.” The Eagles have played three home games this season and traveled more than 13,000 miles.

The Eagles (4-9 overall) will stay in Baltimore for a while as they begin the first of two season-long three-game homestands. This will be the Eagles first home game since Dec. 11 when they beat UMBC, 91-71. Coppin hosts an 8-6 Towson squad that has lost all five of its road games this season. One of those road losses was at Oregon State, a place where Coppin State won in its second game of the season.

Senior forward Michael Murray led the Eagles to a 64-61 triumph at Towson in last year’s meeting with 15 points and nine rebounds. Senior guard Andre Armstrong made four of Coppin State’s 10 3-pointers in the win. This is the fourth year in a row Coppin State and Towson is meeting each other. Although the Tigers lead the series, 6-5, the Eagles have won the last two matchups.

During its 77-66 loss to Akron on New Years Eve, Coppin State was led in scoring by Murray, who scored 19 points on 9-for-18 shooting from the field. Armstrong scored 13 points, senior forward Charles Ieans added 12 points and sophomore guard Sterling Smith contributed 11 points. It was the fourth time this season, Coppin State has had at least four players score in double figures.

Murray and Armstrong have been on fire for the Eagles over their last five games. They have been the team scoring leaders. Murray is averaging 15.5 points during that span. Murray has made at least 50 percent of his shots five times this season. Murray, who led the MEAC in rebounding last season, has pulled down at least four rebounds in seven straight games. Armstrong is averaging 11.8 points. He scored 15 points against Toledo and made four 3-pointers against Akron.

One of Coppin State’s strengths this season has been its free-throw shooting. The Eagles lead the MEAC in free-throw shooting percentage (76.0). Junior guard Taariq Cephas made 36-of-40 (90 percent) of his foul shots, including 22 straight. He is one of four CSU players shooting over 78 percent from the foul line: Daquan Brickhouse (28-for-33, 84.8 percent), Armstrong (37-for-45, 82.2), and Murray (25-for-32, 78.1).

In addition to Murray and Armstrong, sophomore guard Sterling Smith(11.2 points per game) and Cephas (10.4) also average double figures for the Eagles. Smith has made at least one 3-pointer in 11 games this season. He is third in the MEAC in 3-point shooting percentage (42.4 percent). Cephas also leads the Eagles with 54 assists, which is fourth in the conference.

Towson senior Jerrelle Benimon registered his fifth straight double-double with 24 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Tigers to their 12th straight home win, a 72-64 victory against New Hampshire Monday night. Benimon has eight double-doubles on the year and 28 in the last two seasons. He has five 20-point games this season, including two straight. Benimon scored 32 points to fuel the Tigers win over Temple earlier this season.

Also, in the win against New Hampshire, senior Marcus Damas was one of four Tigers in double figures with 11 points on 4-for-7 shooting from the floor and 3-for-5 shooting from beyond the arc. Senior Rafriel Guthrie and sophomore Timajh Parker-Rivera chipped in 10 points each. Senior Mike Burwell added eight points and a career-high nine assists in the win.

Overall for the Tigers, Benimon averages 17.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per contest. Also providing balance for Towson are Guthrie (11.5 points per game) and Damas (11.1). Towson averages 73.1 points per game.

Coppin State enjoys a week off before focusing exclusively on MEAC competition when it meets Savannah State on Jan. 11 at 4 p.m.

RETRIEVER UPDATE: UMBC played three games in six days last week and all three were decided by six points or less. The Retrievers edged UMES, 64-59, at home on Dec. 2, but fell at Duquesne (94-88) two days later and at Lehigh (70-68) on Dec. 7. SR F Chase Plummer has scored 48 points in his last two outings, while FR G Rodney Elliott has scored in double figures in the last three games. Both players are averaging 13.9 points per outing.

EAGLE UPDATE: Coppin State opened MEAC play with a convincing 73-54 victory at Delaware State on Dec. 7. Senior forwarrd Michael Murray was named Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference men’s basketball player of the week Monday morning. He scored a career-high 28 points, hitting 11-of-15 shots from the floor. Murray was selected to the MEAC preseason All-Conference First Team after leading the MEAC in rebounds per game last season (8.9) while averaging 12.4 points per game. Sophomore guard Sterling Smith leads the squad at 14.6 points per game and has converted 17-of-36 shots (47.2%) from behind the arc.

Who’s Up Next: UMBC begins the exam period tomorrow and will not be in action again until Sat., Dec. 21, when they make the short trip to Washington, D.C., to face a red-hot George Washington (8-1) squad.
