As it does every week during the college basketball season, the Associated Press released its Top 25 poll on Monday. The usual suspects–Duke, Carolina, Syracuse, etc–were all there as expected. But at the very bottom of the list, North Carolina Central (21-5) received one vote.
//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js It’s just one vote, which means NCCU was no where near getting into the Top 25. Still, for a MEAC team to get recognition in a national poll this late in the season is pretty big. Especially when you consider NCCU just became a full member of the conference again in 2011-2012 and averaged just four wins its first two seasons in Divison I (2008-2009).
The Eagles are currently on a 13 game-winning streak, and have won 20-plus games for the second consecutive season.
