UMES 82, Bethune-Cookman 81, OT: Bakari Copeland scored 22 points, including the winning free throw in overtime, to lift the host Hawks (9-17, 6-5 MEAC) over the Wildcats (5-20, 2-9).
Trailing by a point with 18 seconds left, Copeland was fouled and went to the line, where he hit both free throws.
Ryan Andino also finished with 22 points for UMES and Logan McIntosh had 12 with eight assists.
Howard 70, Morgan State 67: James Miller scored 24 points and blocked the potential tying layup with 20 seconds left as the Bison edged the Bears to end a six-game skid and win its first MEAC home game this season.
Charles Williams added 15 points and a career-high four steals while Damon Collins scored 11 with five assists and three steals for Howard (6-20, 3-8).
Tiwian Kendley scored six points in 75 seconds to pull Morgan State within one with 1:10 left. After Miller hit a free throw, Kendley took the inbounds pass coast-to-coast, but his runner from the left side of the lane was blocked and rebounded by Miller, who hit one of two foul shots to make it 68-65 with 19 seconds to play. Kyle Thomas' offensive rebound and dunk 10 seconds later pulled Morgan State within one, but Kofi Andoh hit two free throws with three seconds remaining to seal it.
Phillip Carr's jumper with 12:16 left gave Morgan State (10-14, 7-4) a 53-45 lead, but the Bears missed 10 of their next 11 field-goal attempts, made just two of seven free throws and committed seven turnovers during a decisive 16-4 Howard run over the next nine-plus minutes.
