Harper, McKee Lead Eagles into Semifinals

March 12, 2009
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Freshman Michael Harper scored a team-high 17 points and senior Tywain McKee converted a crucial three-point play leading Coppin State to a 66-63 victory over North Carolina A&T in the quarterfinal round of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament on Thursday in the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
 
With the Eagles clinging to a 62-61 lead, McKee intercepted an Ed Jones pass at midcourt and then raced in for a layup while drawing a foul. The ensuing free throw increased the Coppin State lead to 65-61 with 24 seconds to play.
 
Jones then trimmed the lead to 65-63 with eight seconds to play and the Aggies fouled Vince Goldsberry, the leading free throw shooter in the conference, intentionally.
 
Goldsberry made one of two free throws to give Coppin State a 66-63 lead with six seconds remaining.
 
North Carolina A&T was unable to get a game-tying field goal attempt as Dwane Joshua slipped while making a move towards the basket and lost the handle on the basketball.
 
Harper was 5-of-9 from the floor and made 3-of-6 three-point attempts to lead the Eagles to the victory. McKee finished with 14 points, eight assists, four rebounds and two steals.
 
Coppin State (13-18) advanced to the semifinals with the win where it will meet cross-town rival Morgan State at 6 p.m.
 
The Eagles overcame being outrebounded 45-27 by committing only 10 turnovers and shooting 43.6 percent from the floor. CSU also made 14-of-17 attempts from the free throw line.
 
The Aggies (16-16) were led by Jones who scored 22 points, while Thomas Coleman had 12 points and 13 rebounds.
 
The Eagles used a late run in the second half to pull ahead of the Aggies and then held off a late charge to post the victory.
 
After a layup by Coleman cut the Coppin State lead to 52-51 with 8:43 to play the Eagles answered with a 4-0 run.
 
A layup by Mike Buckley and a tip-in by Sam Coleman upped the CSU lead to 56-51 with 7:01 left in the game.
 
Jones hit a three-pointer for North Carolina A&T to cut the lead to 56-54 at the 6:26 mark of the second half.
 
A dunk by Coleman and a layup by Buckley gave the Eagles a 60-54 lead with 5:54 to play in the game.
 
Tavarus Alston converted a layup for the Aggies cutting the lead to 60-56 before McKee hit a pair of free throws to up the lead to 62-56 with 2:39 left.
 
A layup by Robert Johnson and a three-pointer for Joshua trimmed the lead to 62-61 setting the stage for the late-game heroics by McKee.
 
The Eagles jumped out to a 10-5 lead in the first half behind a pair of three-pointers by Harper.
 
NC A&T cut the lead to 10-9 before a layup by Eddie Hayden and a jumper by Lenny Young increased the lead to 14-9 with 13:37 left in the first half.
 
A layup by Young upped the Coppin State lead to 18-15 with 11:25 to play before the Aggies answered with an 11-2 run to take a 26-20 lead with 6:32 to play in the opening period.
 
The Eagles climbed back into the game from the free throw line by making six straight attempts and regained the lead at 28-27 on a jumper by McKee.
 
Coppin State took a 32-20 lead into the intermission on a buzzer-beater by McKee.
