MEAC Tournament 2012 Schedule: Howard Faces Tough First Day Test Against North Carolina A&T

The Howard Bison get started in the MEAC COnference tournament on Tuesday as they face North Carolina A&T at 1:30.

The Conference Tournament season is well underway, but the big Conferences have yet to lace them up. That includes, of course, the MEAC, which starts play on Tuesday. Here is the schedule of games that will be played today, but you can find the complete bracket here.

The first game starts at 11 am and features No. 8 Hampton and No. 9 Morgan State. Neither of these teams was that impressive in or out of conference, as both finished with 6-10 Conference records.

The 1:30 game features the local team No. 10 seed Howard against No. 7 seed North Carolina A&T. North Carolina A&T finished this season at 12-19 overall while Howard was just 9-20.

Next up is N.C. Central (No. 5) and Maryland Eastern Shore (No. 12). N.C. Central was 10-6 in Conference, while Maryland Eastern Shore was only 4-12. That game starts at 4 pm.

The 6:30 game is between No. 4 seed Bethune-Cookman and No. 13 seed South Carolina State. Bethune-Cookman should be the favorite pretty easily considering S.C. State finished without a win in Conference this year.

The final game of the day features Florida A&m taking on the No. 6 seed Coppin State. Coppin State is the favorite, but they have pretty similar Conference records, so an upset could be in the making.
