The 2011 MEAC Tournament has kind of a weird structure. They played two first round games on Tuesday. On Wednesday they played two quarterfinal matchups and the third and final first round matchup. There were two local teams in action yesterday and neither fared very well.
Howard falls to Norfolk St. 68-53
Hampton runs away from Maryland Eastern Shore 77-55
Top-seed Bethune Cookman beats South Carolina St. 66-50
It's pretty odd that the closest of thee three games was decided by 15 points. I'm not sure what that says about the competitive balance in the conference, or the relative ability of the top teams, but it is an interesting development.Norfolk St.'s win was a first round game, so they will play again today. Here is the schedule for today's two quarterfinal matchups.
Norfolk St. Vs. Coppin St., 6 p.m.
North Carolina A&T Vs. Morgan St., 8 p.m.
As always, we'll be following these results, and we'll relay them to you in this StoryStream.
