SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Jeremiah Hill scored 17 points to lead Savannah State past Maryland-Eastern Shore 66-42 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener for both teams Monday night.
Terel Hall's layup with 12:06 to play sparked a 20-2 run by Savannah State (3-12), opening up a 62-39 lead with just over 3 minutes remaining. Maryland-Eastern Shore was scoreless more than seven minutes of action during that stretch and scored just five points in the final 13 minutes.
