Reggie Holmes scored 20 points and Morgan State claimed its first NCAA tournament berth by beating Norfolk State 83-69 on Saturday night in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship game.
Jermaine Bolden added 18 points and Kevin Thompson had 15 points
and 11 rebounds for the top-seeded Bears (23-11).
They reeled off 18 consecutive points in the first half and 11
straight in the second, shot 49 percent and figured out the
Spartans' energetic full-court press in plenty of time to send
two-time MEAC coach of the year Todd Bozeman to his first NCAA
tournament since he guided California there in the mid-1990s.
The next stop for these Bears: The sport's grandest stage, most
likely as either a 15th or 16th seed.
