HAWKS PREPARE FOR REGULAR SEASON FINALE WITH TIGERS
March 7, 2013
SAVANNAH, Ga. --The University of Maryland Eastern Shore will take its last trip south Thursday. Savannah State will host the Hawks for its final regular season contest. Scheduled for 8:00 p.m., the Hawks enter the Thursday's game with a 2-24 record.
The Savannah State University Tigers will enter Thursday's contest with an overall record of 17-13 and 10-5 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The Hawks are 2-13 in the MEAC.
UMES has struggled with keeping depth on the bench. Traveling with eight players at its disposal, the Hawks have several key pieces on the floor at all times. Kevin Maysleads the team in points per game (14.3), and holds the top spot in rebounds.
All three players have marked game highs in rebounds or points this season. Such marks show their ability to light up a stat-line; however, a team effort is needed to compete against Savannah State Thursday.
This will be the Hawks' last contest before preparing for the MEAC Tournament March 11-16 in Norfolk, Virginia. Held at the Norfolk Scope, UMES will have to focus on its match-up with the Tigers before eyeing its tournament appearance.
