Norfolk State came into Greensboro with zero losses in the MEAC, but headed back to the 757 with two. One for the men and one for the women.
The A&T women started off the big day with a dominant 53-39 win over an NSU squad that ended its dream MEAC season last year in the tournament.
The Aggies held the conference’s leading scorer Chanette Hicks (21.9 points per game) to just eight points and the conference’s second-best scoring team (68.0 ppg) to just 39 points and 29.6 percent shooting.
It was a big win for an A&T team that lost back-to-back MEAC games last week after having won 28 consecutive conference regular season games prior to that.
The A&T men gave NSU its first MEAC blemish of the season as well with a 74-68 win over NSU.
The Aggies shot just 41 percent from the field but feasted on 21 Spartans turnovers and scoring 15 points off them.
Five players finished in double-figures for A&T, led by Kwe Parker and Andre Jackson’s 15 points apiece. Joe Bryant led NSU with 17 points.
The win puts the A&T men in first place over NSU with a 7-1 record. NSU falls to 6-1 in the MEAC.
