    BALTIMORE -- Kevin Thompson scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Morgan State over Maryland-Baltimore County 73-60 on Wednesday night, ending an eight-game losing streak dating back to last season.

    Morgan State trailed 18-17 with 6:28 left in the first half before scoring 10 straight. Ian Chiles' layup put the Bears up 27-18 with 4:10 left until halftime.
