Redshirt freshman guard Te'Shya Heslip scored 15 points, along with a career-high 10 assists as the Howard Lady Bison edged the Morgan State Lady Bears, 71-66, in the first Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) game of the season for both teams, played on Jan. 4 at Hill Field House in Baltimore, Md.

Howard’s sports information director, Ed Hill Jr., reported that Howard controlled the lead for nearly the entire game. The Lady Bison led 30-25 at halftime and maintained that much of a cushion throughout the second half of the game, according to Howard Sports Information.

Howard freshman forward Sydni Johnson also scored 15 points for the Lady Bison to share team-high scoring honors with Heslip. Redshirt senior Cabria Johnson followed with 11 points for Howard.

Morgan State junior guard Tracey Carrington scored a game-high 33 points along with 8 rebounds, according to box score.

The win extended Howard’s current win streak to three games as they now carry a 6-8 overall record on the season, while the Lady Bears dropped to a 2-10 record.

Next-Up: Howard will next face non-conference opponent Cornell on Jan. 8 at Burr Gymnasium in Washington, D.C., while Morgan State returns to action on Jan. 6 in its own non-conference matchup against Cornell at Hill Field House in Baltimore.
