NORFOLK, Va. (AP/WNCN) — North Carolina Central got no style points in winning its third consecutive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship. Coach LeVelle Moton figured in advance that that might be the case: In a regular season meeting, Norfolk State beat the Eagles in overtime.

"Typical championship game," Moton said after his team's 50-47 victory against top-seeded Norfolk State on Saturday. "We knew we were going to be in for a dogfight. ... This is what we do it for, man."

For NCCU, it's the first time in school history the Eagles have secured three straight NCAA Tournament bids. The Eagles also became the first MEAC team to win three straight tournament titles since North Carolina A&T won seven straight from 1982-88.


N.C. Central: will await its NCAA Tournament destination.

Norfolk State: will play in the NIT as league regular-season champions.
