    NORFOLK, Va. -- Adrien Coleman scored 28 points and Kevin Dukes added 22 as Bethune-Cookman defeated Coppin State 89-78 Tuesday in a first-round game at the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament.

    Bethune-Cookman, which will play top-seeded Norfolk State in the quarterfinals Wednesday night, shot 52.4 percent (33 of 63) to end a three-game losing streak.
