In order to compete and meet expectations of having a first class winning Division I Women’s Basketball Program, the NCCU program must have top quality student-athletes who are able to adequately compete at that level.
NCCU Lady Eagles Basketball Has Not achieved a winning season since moving up into the Division I ranks of NCAA Women's Basketball in 2010.
In order to achieve the goals of winning and competing at high levels that win Championships, NCCU has to upgrade its student athlete's talent level. NCCU Women's Basketball must become much quicker, stronger and taller. Above average three points shooting is a must. Strong offensive and defensive Rebounding is a must. Excellent Point Guard play with depth is a must. With 4 to 10 players being cut from the current team, tells me that the current NCCU Coaching Staff must have the needed excellent student-athlete recruits and transfers coming in, who are much better, quicker, taller and stronger Division I Basketball players who have the needed skills to get the job done, ASAP!
The NCCU Lady Eagles Basketball Program MUST be completely rebuilt from the ground floor up. There is NEVER any easy way to do it. With all things considered, NOW is the best time to do it and not prolong what needs to be done to reset the NCCU Lady Eagles on very sound and solid footing to win future championships at the Division I level.
Yes, our hearts are very saddened regarding those young ladies who must be cut. However, NCCU Athletics has made the commitment to become one of the best programs in the USA. The first steps in doing those large and very unpleasant tasks are making some very hard decisions that are best for success of NCCU Lady Eagles Basketball in the long run.
