Coppin coach Brown wins 100th

THE BALTIMORE SUN

Derek Brown became the first women's coach in Coppin State history to reach 100 career wins as the Lady Eagles defeated host Norfolk State, 68-51, yesterday at Echols Hall for their 12th consecutive victory.

The Eagles remain one of only 10 Division I teams left undefeated in conference play at 12-0 (13-8 overall) and have notched 20 consecutive victories over Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opposition. Coppin swept the regular-season series with the Spartans (6-14, 3-8) and has won the past three meetings.

Sherrie Tucker shot 50 percent from the field for 13 points and now ranks third in scoring at Coppin with 1,266 career points. With six regular season games left she needs 57 points to take second.

"One-hundred wins, it's nice to have, but I would worry more about percentage than 100 wins, but today's game we played with a lot of poise and we did what we had to do," Brown said.

Navy 73, Lafayette 63 -- Kate Hobbs and Carly Meyer each scored 21 points and reached double figures in rebounds to lead the host Mids (12-11, 5-5). Hobbs (12 rebounds) and Meyer (10 rebounds) helped the Mids (12-11, 5-5) to a 40-27 rebounding advantage over the Leopards (7-16, 2-8), including 11 on the offensive end in the second half.

Fairleigh Dickinson 66, Mount St. Mary's 61 -- LaToya Butler led the Mount (10-12, 7-6 Northeast Conference) with 19 points, and freshman Brianna Gauthier scored a career-high 16 in the loss to the host Knights (7-14, 4-9).
