UMES Women’s Basketball Falls Short In MEAC Matchup

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore women’s basketball team came up just short in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference match up Monday night, falling 64-59 to South Carolina State University. The Hawks fall to 6-9 overall and 3-2 in the MEAC.

The game was head-to-head through the entire game with the Hawks only seeing their biggest lead reach six early in the second half. Taking a 33-31 lead into the half, UMES shot 50 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes led by 13 points by freshman Moengaroa Subritzky. Continuing the advantage in the second half, the Hawks would surrender the lead late and the Bulldogs would hold on for the five-point victory.

South Carolina State’s Amber Howard led all scorers with 17 for the game, while Subritzky recorded a team-high 16 and freshman Shauntesha Bryant added 12 for the game.

The Hawks look to get back in the win column on Saturday, as they travel to Bethune-Cookman University for another MEAC contest. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.
