Bethune-Cookman predicted to win the MEAC hoops title for the first time ever

For the first time in nearly 40 years as a conference member, Bethune-Cookman is the MEAC hoops favorite.

The MEAC title is projected to go through Daytona, Florida.

Bethune-Cookman was tabbed as the pre-season favorite during the MEAC basketball teleconference on Thursday afternoon. Under Coach Ryan Ridler, the Wildcats captured a share of the MEAC Championship while finishing 12-4 in MEAC play and 18-14 overall. Ridler’s hot start landed him in the BCU record books as he won the most games out of any 1st season head coach in school history.

Its overall record of 18-14 also ranks 2nd all-time in BCU history in terms of winning percentage.

There’s still more work to do as the Wildcats bring four starters and nine players back this season. Back-to-back MEAC Tournament Champion North Carolina Central was picked second followed by Norfolk State in 3rd.

The rest of the projections are listed below.

1) Bethune-Cookman
2) North Carolina Central

4) Howard
5) North Carolina A&T State
6) Morgan State
7) Florida A&M
