University of Maryland-Eastern Shore vs. American University game recap: Eagles breeze by winless Hawks

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Four Eagles scored in double figures, led by Blake Jolivette's 16 points, to help American coast by Md.-Eastern Shore, 63-49.

The American Eagles were able to keep the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks winless on the season, as the Eagles dealt easily with the MEAC's lone winless team, 63-49.

American guard Blake Jolivette posted a team-high 16 points in the victory, one of four Eagles to score in double figures on the night. Marko Vasic also added eight points off the bench.

American's Stephen Lumpkins, who finished with a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds, helped the Eagles keep the Hawks from building much offensive momentum in the first half and throughout the night, as only forward Troy Snyder (13 points) was able to score more than seven points for the Hawks.

After an early 3-2 advantage, Maryland Eastern Shore would not lead again the rest of the night.

The Hawks pulled to within four points late in the first half, but guard Daniel Munoz, who finished with 11 points, helped the Eagles to their eventual 10-point halftime lead that American would not relinquish the rest of the night.
