DOVER, Del. (AP) Phillip Carr scored 16 points, including a pair of go-ahead free throws, and grabbed seven rebounds to lead Morgan State past Delaware State for a 65-52 win Monday night.

The Bears (12-14, 9-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) broke it open late in the second half with a 17-2 run bookended with free throws from Carr to make it 62-48 with 2:15 to play as two Delaware State bigs, DeVaughn Mallory and Demola Onifade, fouled out.

Antonio Gillespie later sealed it with a 3-pointer that made it 65-50 and the Hornets (9-20, 6-8) got two layups in the final 34 seconds to cap the scoring.

Devin Morgan led Delaware State with 11 points.
