Sports Samplings – 1/24
Norfolk State women and men are atop the latest MEAC standings, and both are undefeated in the conference at 4-0. They host South Carolina State on Saturday and Florida A&M on Monday. The men’s game between NSU and FAMU will be televised on ESPNU at 7 p.m. For Eagles fans, NSU comes to Durham on Feb. 3 for a doubleheader beginning at 5:30 with the women.
No. 2: Howard guard Charles Williams has moved up to second on the MEAC’s all-time scoring list with 2,163 points. He trails former Delaware State star Tom Davis, who has 2,275 points.
Everything comes to an end: In case you missed it, North Carolina A&T women’s 28-game MEAC regular season win streak was snapped by Morgan State on Monday. The Aggies host Bethune-Cookman this weekend, which pits last season’s regular season champion against the tournament champion.
Giving back: A&T will establish a sports performance center named after 1975 alumni Darnell and Carolyn Glover, who are also staunch Aggie Athletic Foundation supporters. The center will serve as an indoor training facility for baseball, softball, golf and cheer teams. “The center is another step toward addressing the needs of our students holistically,” athletics director Earl Hilton III said, noting the athletics department most recently added a nutritionist and mental health counselor to its resources.
