NORFOLK, Va. -- Kyle O'Quinn scored 18 points to lead Norfolk State to a 76-59 victory over Morgan State Saturday night in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game.
The Spartans (16-6, 8-0) remained unbeaten in the MEAC behind the play of O'Quinn, who hit 7 of 11 shots from the floor, and Pendarvis Williams, who scored 14 points. Norfolk State led 41-22 at halftime.
The Spartans only sank three 3-pointers in nine attempts but that hardly mattered. Not the way Morgan State (5-13, 3-4) misfired. The Bears hit just two of 15 3-pointers. They shot 23.3 percent in the first half, 7 for 30, and made just 1 of 11 from the 3-point arc. Overall, Morgan State shot 31.1 percent from the field (19 for 61).
Kevin Thompson led Morgan State with a 13-point, 12-rebound double-double.
Norfolk State was 17 for 24 at the line, 28 for 67 overall.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
