-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.
