    DOVER, Del. -- Marcus Neal scored 18 points and Delaware State defeated turnover-prone Maryland-Eastern Shore 57-37 on Thursday night.

    The Hornets (16-11, 11-5 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) forced 24 turnovers by the Hawks, who had just three assists.

    Maryland-Eastern Shore (10-20, 8-8) led 12-10 with 12:49 in the first half, but turned it over eight times before halftime. Delaware State outscored the Hawks 18-5 from that point, and Neal's 3-pointer gave the Hornets a 28-17 lead with 5 seconds to go until halftime.

    Kevin White's layup pulled Maryland-Eastern Shore within 42-36 with 3:47 to play. But Delaware State went on an 18-5 run the rest of the way. Neal's dunk capped the spurt for the final margin with 19 seconds remaining.

    Frisco Sandidge added 11 points for the Hornets, who shot 44.9 percent from the field (22 of 49).

    Hillary Haley led the Hawks with 11 points.
