BALTIMORE, MD — Morgan State will seek to end a two-man skid when it plays host to Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) outfit Lincoln (PA) on Thursday afternoon.
The Bears (5-7) enter this game on the rear of back-to-back road defeats to CSU Northridge and Old Dominion, but are expected to snap the slide at the Hill Field House, here in Baltimore.
Lincoln (PA) comes into the game on a six-game winning streak, but ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, as anticipated, is backing Morgan State a 98.8 percent chance to end that run.
The Lions (10-4) are led by junior guard Cameron Campbell, who is scoring 14.8 points per game this season, while freshman Deaquan Williams is averaging 13.9 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in this campaign.
Both players will have to play a key for Lincoln (PA) if the travelers are to steal a win on the road, while the likes of Zahrion Blue and Tamir Green, among others, will be called on to step up in support.
Freshman guard Sherwyn Devonish-Prince Jr. leads Morgan State this season scoring with 10.2 points
Devonish-Prince Jr. scored 22 points for the Bears in the 94-86 defeat to CSU Northridge on Saturday.
Stanley Davis had 25 points and nine rebounds in that game.
Thursday’s game will be the second matchup between the two programs, with Morgan State beating Lincoln (PA) 72-60 on Nov. 16, 2017.
