The Scouting Report

Riding a 32 home-game win-streak (the Eagle’s have not lost at home since 12/4/2012) and ranking third in Division I behind Gonzaga and Arizona, the high-scoring Eagles are perched atop the MEAC standings with a spotless 10–0 conference record. The last time NCCU lost a home-game to a MEAC team was 2/1/2012, when Savannah State won by 10. Since that game, the Eagles have won 23 consecutive in-conference home-games. Later this month, they’ll look to keep the slate clean during challenges from Morgan State on 2/21, and Bethune-Cookman on 2/28.

Before the men’s games tip off and the refs refill the ball’s candy, the women’s team will charge onto the court fueled by a winning streak of their own. From January 24 through February 2, the Lady Eagles won three straight games, putting them with striking distance of conference-leading Hampton.

NCCU Eagles

“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.
