Aggies Move Up in Conference Standings

Aggies Move Up in Conference Standings 

By: Teyah Glenn 

The North Carolina A&T Men’s Basketball Team played rival North Carolina Central University winning the game with a final score of 60-77, resulting in the Aggies standing at number two in the Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference, (MEAC) and pushing the NCCU Eagles down to number three. 

Lines were wrapped around the Corbett Sports Center on the visitors and home side. The atmosphere in “Club Corbett” for games like these are always top tier. The support from the students, faculty and staff, alumni, and even other sports teams, is real.

This game was also aired on ESPNU on February 17, 2020 at 7pm. 

With a number of great plays throughout the game in the first half, Kwe Parker made a dunk, assisted by Kameron Langley. Fred Cleveland Jr. made an amazing 3-point jumper, assisted by NCCU’s Jordan Perkins. Ronald Jackson made a dunk, assisted by Kameron Langley. Aggies lead the first half by 20 with a score of 40-20. 

A&T won the jump ball to kick off the second half. Another dunk was made by Ronald Jackson with an assist from Kameron Langley. Kwe Parker made another good 3-point jumper with an assist from Kameron Langley. With three seconds left in the game, NCCU’s CJ Keyser makes a jumper, still falling short to the Aggies with a score of 60-77 making A&T number two in the MEAC with a record of 9-3 in the conference. 

“We had a tough, tough practice defensively on Thursday because that’s what it’s going to take to win games,” said A&T acting coach Will Jones. 

After the conference switch, effective in 2021, hopefully NCCU remains a rival as a non-conference competitor.
