Morgan State junior forward Tracey Carrington scored a double-double of 25 points with 11 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to put a stop to a dreadful losing slump as the Lady Bears fell to Delaware State, 86-66, in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) game on Feb. 1 at Hill Field House in Baltimore, Md. It was the 11th straight loss for the Lady Bears, who haven’t won a game since Dec. 18, 2013.

Delaware State took control early after a 19-2 scoring run midway through the first half, as reported by the MSU Sports Information. The Lady Hornets led 47-30 at halftime and maintained their comfortable lead throughout the second half.

The Lady Hornets played without their best player, redshirt sophomore guard-forward Tierra Hawkins, who averages more than 20 points scored per game. But her teammates filled the void as junior guard-forward Deanna Harmon scored 14 points with nine rebounds, and freshman forward Mi’Queara Lewis added 13 points with eight rebounds.

Redshirt freshman guard Daniele Robinson followed Carrington with 14 points in the loss.

Morgan State will make another attempt as ending their losing funk when they take on Hampton on Feb. 3 at Hill Field House.
