The North Carolina Central Eagles took care of business, drubbing the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks 60-43 in the first round of the MEAC Tournament Tuesday evening.
The Eagles stuffed the Hawks offense into shooting just 34.9 percent for the game and committing 24 turnovers. Although Maryland-Eastern Shore was able to win the battle on the glass 37-24, their mental mistakes did them in.
Hawks guard Percy Woods scored a game high 10 points, but received little help from his teammates.
North Carolina Central will now face the winner of tonights Bethune-Cookman-South Carolina State game Thursday at 9 p.m.
