MORGAN STATE at NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL, 7:30 PM Eastern, no TV

The SCGD heads to Durham, North Carolina tonight for a MEAC battle between Todd Bozeman’s(not to be confused with Todd Bearzman) Morgan State Bears and the North Carolina Central Eagles.  Both teams enter tonight’s game at 4-1 in conference play, only half a game behind Savannah State.  Morgan State struggled in non-conference play this season and as such enters tonight’s game only 6-11 overall.  However, they did play one of the top 50 non-conference schedules and should be a factor in the MEAC race all season long.

NC Central was by far the most impressive MEAC team before conference play started.  They scored road wins at North Carolina State and Old Dominion, and they were competitive in losses to Cincinnati and Wichita State.  Of course, they then turned around and began conference play by losing to a Florida A&M team that is not expected to be anywhere near the top of the standings.  The Eagles have bounced back and won five straight since that loss (including a non-conference win over NJIT), and look to re-establish themselves as the team to beat in the MEAC with a win tonight.
