Know your opponent: Morgan State Bears

| No TrackBacks
As I was walking to class this morning three mini-vans impeded my progress as I came down the stairs by the Nipper Stadium concourse. Marked with Kentucky license plates these vans were holding the women of Morgan State, Cincinnati's non-conference opponent for tonight.

You may have already read about the Bears via yesterday's press release, but here is some more information regarding the team from Maryland.

Morgan State (2-2) is coming off a 54-52 road win at Bucknell. The Bears leading scorer, DeKeisha Martin, is a senior, who coach Donald Beasley counts on for consistent play. She is very efficient from the guard position and is one of the leaders on her team. Her game resembles that of Bjonee Reaves because she is similar in size and is especially good from three-point range.

Other key players for the Bears are Jamesia Smith, who is contributing nine points per game and Omara Parker, who is their leading re-bounder and third leading scorer.

Morgan State's other win this season came against local-rival, George Washington. Their two losses were to Maryland-Baltimore County and St. Bonaventure. Their losses were both by double-digits, while their wins were by single-digit margins. This is the Bears fifth straight road game.

Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. from Fifth Third Arena.
