The Scouting Report
With just about a month left in each of their seasons, NCCU’s men’s and women’s basketball teams will try to finish strong during home games in February. On both days, the Lady Eagles will tip off the doubleheader action behind leading scorer Morgan Jones. As the lone returning starter from last year’s team, the junior guard has stepped up in a big way, leading the young roster with 12 points per game—a baller’s dozen.
The men’s team, meanwhile, relies heavily on a junior guard of its own in Patrick Cole. Averaging 18 points per game, Cole dropped a season-high 30 points on Savannah State during a 69–46 Eagles win on January 11. The Eagles will try to repeat that outcome on February 29 when they clash with Tigers at McDougald-McLendon Arena, where, over the past few seasons, they’ve been extremely tough to beat in both basketball and games of hide-and-seek under the bleachers.
"While a sparrow clings to its flock, an eagle soars alone." Those were the words of North Carolina Central University founder Dr. James E. Shepherd, who each year rallied the student body with an inspirational toast to the school's majestic mascot. Today, the noble Eagle's eye watches over the historically black university's 16 men's and women's athletic teams, many of whom have soared throughout the years. The Eagles have claimed 43 conference championships—not all with its current conference, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference—to go along with three NCAA regional titles and two national titles. The school's athletic prowess has even reached the international stage: Eagles appeared in six consecutive Olympics from 1956 to 1976 and won five gold medals, which back then were actual gold medals—not the foil-wrapped protein bars they give out today.
