BALTIMORE (AP) Justin Black scored 17 points and led five teammates in double-figures as Morgan State won its conference home opener against Howard University 87-58 on Saturday.

Howard (2-9, 0-1) and Morgan State opened Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play and also celebrated their 101st meeting. The Bears and the Bison have split the last two meetings.

Morgan State (2-7, 1-0), who was tabbed pre-season as a second-place finisher in the MEAC, led 37-29 at the break.

Black, the Bears leading scorer (17.8 ppg) accented a second half 48-32 lead with a steal and a two-handed slam at 16:59 and then scored on another dunk two minutes later to go up 53-35.

Howard, a loser of eight straight games could not match the pace set by Morgan State and trailed by as much as 29 leading up to the buzzer.
