Saint Joseph's defeats Morgan State 70-60

BALTIMORE (AP) Carl Jones scored 17 points and Ronald Roberts posted a double-double as Saint Joseph's won its third straight game, beating Morgan State 70-60 Saturday night in a nonconference matchup.

Langston Galloway played all 40 minutes and scored 16 points, Roberts finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds and Halil Kanacevic pulled down 12 boards for Saint Joseph's (8-4), which recorded a season-high 50 rebounds.

DeWayne Jackson led Morgan State (3-8) with 16 and Ian Chiles had 10, but the Bears shot just 30 percent (24 of 79) in the loss.

Morgan State cut a seven-point halftime lead to three, 32-29, after Chiles opened the second half with back-to-back baskets. But Saint Joseph's rattled off eight straight to push its lead to 40-29 and pull away.

The Bears, who shot 1 of 13 from deep, got no closer than nine the rest of the way.

Maryland QB Max Bortenschlager announces he has entered the transfer portal

Maryland Terrapins quarterback Max Bortenschlager has entered the NCAA's transfer portal.

The redshirt junior will have two years of eligibility remaining as a graduate transfer.

Originally recruited by former Terrapins head coach D.J. Durkin, Bortenschlager joined the team in 2016. As a freshman, he appeared in two games. He made his first career start against then-No. 19 Nebraska, where the Terps fell, 28-7.

His best season with Maryland came as a sophomore, where he started eight games for the Terrapins and appeared in 10. Bortenschlager was forced into action due to season-ending ACL injuries to quarterbacks Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill. He threw for 10 touchdowns and over 1,300 yards in 2017.

As a junior, Bortenschlager found himself once again buried on the depth chart behind Hill and Pigrome. Primarily serving as the holder on extra points and field goal attempts, Bortenschlager suffered a season-ending ankle injury three games into the season.

Under new head coach Mike Locksley, Bortenschlager did not see the field in 2019. The year will count as a redshirt, as to why he has two seasons remaining as a graduate transfer. 

The Terrapins have quarterback Josh Jackson and Pigrome returning in 2020. Additionally, Lance LeGendre will be in the mix for the starting job after redshirting in 2019. He was originally a four-star recruit.

Nationals pay tribute to John Altobelli, another victim in Sunday's helicopter crash

The sports world was shaken on Sunday after hearing the news that legendary NBA player Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crash earlier that morning.

As the somber evening wore on, more information came out regarding the victims of the tragedy. One of the passengers on the helicopter was longtime Orange Coast College and Cape Cod League manager John Altobelli.

Altobelli's daughter was a teammate of Bryant's daughter, Gianna, and the helicopter was traveling to one of their youth basketball games. Altobelli's wife, Keri, was also on board. There were no survivors.

On Monday, the Nationals Twitter account shared their condolences for Altobelli and his family.

The Nationals were one of the multiple teams to share their sympathy for the Altobelli family. Both New York Mets outfielder Jeff McNeil and Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge played under Altobelli in the Cape Cod League.

Orange Coast was expected to begin its season on Tuesday.
