Special honors for Kongolo, Moton

North Carolina Central great Amba Kongolo, along with a slew of family and friends, watched her jersey unveiled last Saturday during halftime of the women’s game against Delaware State.

Kongolo is still the only CIAA player to be drafted by the WNBA. (For more on her career, see previous story.)

The Eagles had their three-game home win streak broken by defending champion Hampton Monday afternoon. The Pirates led from start to finish to remain in first place.

NCCU hits the road this weekend for a two-game swing in Florida: first at Florida A&M and then Bethune-Cookman on Monday. The team hosts Maryland Eastern Shore next Saturday at 2 p.m.

Then Monday night, coach LeVelle Moton got his No. 15 jersey hung during an emotional ceremony, but Hampton came away with the 86-70 win Monday night.

Like the women’s game, the Pirates led from start to finish to end NCCUs unbeaten home streak. It also was the Eagles biggest loss at home since Jan. 31, 2009.

The road doesn’t get any easier with two road games at FAMU and first-place Bethune. Below is Moton's speech.
