Jordan Parks, NCCU make statement in blowout win over Coppin State

North Carolina Central’s motto for this year may be “Unsatisfied,” but they couldn’t have asked for a better start to the 2015 MEAC Tournament. NCCU dominated Coppin State from start to finish, coming up with a 91-43 win in Wednesday’s men quarterfinals.

North Carolina Central will play the winner of tomorrow’s Howard/Delaware State game in the semifinals on Friday night.

The Eagles were led by Jordan Parks, who was surprisingly left off the All-MEAC first team last week. The senior from Queens, NY was a force down low, putting up 29 points and 10 rebounds. Parks played like a man on a mission.

And as usual, he had all the dunks.


In addition to Parks big game, the Eagles got plenty of point from guard Anthony McDonald (19 points) and an all-around game from point guard Nimrod Hillard who finished with 12 points and six assists.

So were the Eagles trying to make a statement?

“Absolutely,” NCCU coach LeVelle Moton said after the game. “We wanted to send a message to everybody else.”

Message received.
