Courtesy of the MEAC Conference, a 71-62 victory by North Carolina Central over Morgan Central catapults the Eagles into the NCAA’s for the very first time.
Couple that with a 28-5 record, 16-1 in the MEAC–it gives the Eagles an RPI of 99. But they do have one victory against an RPI team rated in the Top 50, which was at North Carolina State on November 20 when the Wolfpack was ranked 55 at the time.
Hearty congratulations to their fans and alumni who waited so long for this moment.
Now back to the thrilling conclusion of the Mountain West title game in Las Vegas.
