Senior forward Michael Murray led Coppin State with 13 points as the Coppin State Eagles were crushed, 71-49, by the Richmond Spiders on Dec. 14 at the Robins Center in Richmond, Va.

Coppin shot a dreadful 28 percent from the field, while Richmond shot 50 percent. Eagles sophomore guard Sterling Smith averages nearly 15 points per game, but scored only eight points on 3-for-12 shooting against Richmond.

Richmond had to play without its leading scorer, senior guard Cedric Lindsay. But junior guard Kendrick Anthony made up for the absence with a game-high 18 points. Sophomore forward Tre Davis added 12 points and eight rebounds off the bench for Richmond.

Coppin State fell to 4-5 this season while Richmond improved to 8-3. The Eagles will face Southern Miss (9-1) on Dec. 20 in Hattiesburg, Miss.
