|Adrien Powell and NC A&T finish with a 20-17 record.|
Tuesday night, North Carolina A&T captured the hearts and twitter timelines of Black America during its 73-72 win over Liberty in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Thursday night, it caught some shade from many of those same individuals as they fell 79-48 to Louisville.
Coming off Southern’s near upset of number one seed Gonzaga, A&T had a tough act to follow. Things started out optimistic enough, as A&T trailed just 6-4 early in the first half.
Welp.. Lets go A&T ..it’s only another #1 seed ..

But as things began snowball on NC A&T, things began to go south on social media. And the clowning commenced.
Greatest Beatdown on Earth.

But anyone who has ever been around an Aggie will tell you, they shade with the best of them.
And the last word goes to one of the guys who made history, Austin Witter.
