Anthony Hubbard boosted Morgan State's first-half lead to 30-23 after hitting two free throws, but Bethune-Cookman's Malik Jackson hit a jumper and Clemmye Owens drained a desperation shot from half-court at the buzzer to trim the Bears' lead to 30-28 at halftime.

Morgan State led 57-42 after an alley-oop dunk by the 7-foot-2 Chiles at 7:13.

Blossom hit two free throws to clinch the win and time expired.

Owens led Bethune-Cookman (6-23, 4-11) with 18, Jackson had 11, and Maurice Taylor grabbed 10 rebounds.
