SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:
-Congratulations to SunTrust Athlete of the Morning Stephanie Glavaris. She scored 16 points Friday night as Maryvale came up with a big 46-34 win over Bryn Mawr.
-UMBC 65, Boston University 57. The Retrievers can use a win over one of the better America East teams.
-Morgan State 75, Delaware State 66. When you’re the best team in your conference, you should be able to win games on the road.
-Coppin State 70, UMES 53. With no offense to Frankie Allen at all; the Hawks are just not a good team.
-The Cliff Tucker thing is MADDENING. The guy has the ability (he’s not Kobe Bryant, but he’s capable of playing); and he doesn’t appear to be a malcontent. There HAS to be something bigger there.
Talk to you tomorrow.
