The Coppin State University Eagles lost a seventh straight game after struggling in a 75-53 blowout loss to the Savannah State University Tigers on Jan. 11 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) game at the Coppin State Physical Education Complex (PEC) in Baltimore.

The Eagles (4-11) haven’t won a game since beating UMBC on Dec. 11.

Coppin State had high hopes of ending the losing slump after taking an early lead against Savannah State (4-12). But the Tigers managed to spark a double-digit scoring run in the second half to run away with the victory.

Freshman guard Jeremiah Hill led Savannah State with a game-high 16 points while senior forward Jyles Smith followed with an amazing double-double of 14 points and 20 rebounds. Freshman guard Alante Fenner also scored 14 points off the bench for the Tigers.

Coppin State senior forward Michael Murray scored a team-high 15 points and senior guard Andre Armstrong scored 11 points.

The Eagles will host MEAC rival South Carolina State (5-10) on Jan. 13 at the PEC in Baltimore.
