Coming up / / Norfolk State at Coppin Center, Saturday, 4 p.m.

Comment / / Junior forward Antwan Harrison is averaging 11.1 points on 51.3 percent shooting in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games. The Eagles play five of their last eight at home.

Maryland (17-6, 3-5)

Coming up / / Virginia at Comcast Center, tomorrow, 9 p.m., Comcast SportsNet; Duke at Comcast Center, Sunday, 5 p.m., Ch. 45

Comment / / Five of the Terps' last eight regular-season games will be at Comcast Center. If they had beaten Miami there on Jan. 10, there would be a lot less angst in College Park.

Morgan State (8-12, 6-3)

Coming up / / At Delaware State, tonight, 7:30; Hampton at Hill Field House, Saturday, 4 p.m.

Comment / / The Bears' four-game winning streak in the MEAC means nothing in Dover, but they can make a run at second place by holding serve at home. All three big men are shooting better than 50 percent from the field.

Navy (11-12, 1-7)

Coming up / / At Lehigh, Wednesday, 7 p.m.; at Lafayette, Saturday, 4 p.m.

Comment / / The Midshipmen's only Patriot League win came over Lafayette. Still searching for the right combination, coach Billy Lange used 14 players against Bucknell.

Coming up / / At Northeastern, Wednesday, 7 p.m.; Georgia State at Towson Center, Saturday, 2 p.m.

Comment / / Gary Neal and Tommy Breaux were the only Tigers to attempt a free throw in Saturday's loss at Drexel. On Saturday, they can avenge a double-overtime loss in Atlanta.
