The Morgan State University Lady Bears lost their fifth straight game, falling on the road to George Washington University, 75-60, on Dec. 14 at the Charles E. Smith Center in Washington, D.C.

Morgan State jumped off to a decent start offensively in the first half and led by three at halftime. But GWU went on a 35-15 run in the second half, using defense to suffocate the Lady Bears in the final minutes of the game.

Morgan State turned the ball over 35 times in the game, 11 of those turnovers committed during GWU’s second-half run, according to MSU’s Sports Information department. Morgan State junior guard Tracey Carrington led all scorers with 25 points, but scored only 8 points in the second half.

Megan Brown led George Washington with 18 points and Caira Washington followed with 15. Sophomore forward Dinah Jones scored six points with nine rebounds for the Lady Bears.

Morgan State dropped to 1-7 this season. They will face Towson on Dec. 18 at Hill Field House in Baltimore.
