Final Stats

OMAHA, Nebraska -

Maryland Eastern Shore mens basketball played catch up all night, falling at Creighton 87-36 on Friday night at CenturyLink Center Omaha.

Thats a top-25 caliber team, and they shot the ball well, said Hawks head coach Bobby Collins after the game. We definitely shot the ball poorly, had some open looks and missed. We definitely need to knock those open shots down when the opportunity presents itself.

All-Big East selection Marcus Foster hit a three-pointer 17 seconds in for the Bluejays (8-2), kicking off a 13-0 run to start the game. Logan McIntosh (Atlanta, Georgia) hit a pair of free throws to get the Hawks (3-9) on the board at 13-2 nearly five minutes in. That began a 9-4 flourish for The Shore, and a Miryne Thomas (Cleveland, Ohio) layup from the left post made it 17-9 with 12:03 to play in the first half.

Creighton turned on the jets from there, finishing the opening session on a 28-8 clip. The Bluejays swarmed the Hawks on defense and had quick, crisp passes on the offensive end, overmatching the visitors at every turn.

McIntosh finished with 13 points to lead Eastern Shore, hitting 5-of-5 free throws as the only Hawk to make it to the charity stripe all night. Cameron Bacote (Hampton, Virginia) notched 12 points of his own on four three-pointers, his second straight 12-point game.


 

 

Foster led a balanced scoring attack for the Bluejays, scoring 15 points in just 21 minutes of action. Four other Creighton players scored in double figures on the night, including 12 each from Khyri Thomas and Ty-Shon Alexander.

The Hawks shot just 23.6 percent from the floor (13-of-55), while the Bluejays connected on 52.4 percent (33-of-63) of their looks.

Eastern Shore returns back home for a couple days before flying out for a pair of games in Iowa, starting Wednesday night at Iowa State. Tip from Hilton Coliseum is set for 8 p.m. Eastern Time. Wednesdays game will be broadcast locally on flagship radio station Fox Sports 960 AM WTGM and online at EasternShoreHawks.com. Pregame coverage starts at 7:45 p.m. with Will DeBoer on the call for The Shore Sports Network.
