Taariq Cephas scored 24 points off the bench, including hitting 4 of 4 3-pointers, as Coppin State defeated Hampton 83-77 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament quarterfinal game on Wednesday.
A season of transition brought a new coach with a breath of fresh air and a new identity as a team. There were adjustments along the way as Chip Kelly adjusted to life as an NFL coach after serving an entire career at the college level, but his players bought in to the mentality Kelly introduced to them and fought their way to an NFC East division title few saw coming before the season started.
A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff.

Kyle Kager scored 15 points and pulled down seven rebounds to lead American over Maryland-Eastern Shore 71-58 on Sunday.
Kendall Anthony took up the slack, scoring 18 points as Richmond pounded Coppin State 71-49 in their non-conference Saturday night game.
Michael Murray scored 21 points and Taariq Cephas added 18 with eight assists as Coppin State defeated UMBC 91-71 Wednesday night.
Scott and Jeremy covered everything NFL with Sean starting out with the Eagles and their game that got flexed.
Coppin State’s early season upset win at Oregon State earned the Eagles some notice. Coach Ron “Fang” Mitchell doesn’t necessarily think that’s a good thing.
