I was flipping channels last night, and I was surprised to find Coppin State versus University of Maryland-Eastern Shore on ESPNU. It was a welcome surprise to see the Eastern Shore get a little love on ESPN, although UMES didn’t have such a great performance. They ended up losing 65-48 and really played an overall sloppy game, committing 21 turnovers and shooting only 32 percent from the field.
Apparently, the UMES women’s team played on ESPNU prior to the men’s game, but I didn’t get a chance to check that out. The women played a closer game, losing by a margin of two made free throws with four seconds left in the game.
So although the outcomes weren’t the best, it was still good to see the Shore get some love.
