No second half miracles for Eagle women who fall at A&T

Down 11 in the second half, the N.C. Central women’s basketball team needed a run. It wasn’t unreasonable to think that the Eagles could manufacture a late run — after all, they’d done it in five of their six wins this season.
But NCCU (6-16, 4-6 MEAC) couldn’t dig out of the hole, only scoring 10 points in the second half of a 58-33 loss to rival North Carolina A&T Saturday afternoon.

NCCU out-possessions Coppin State

When a game seems out of reach, the lead insurmountable, North Carolina Central women’s coach Vanessa Taylor simplifies things for her team. Instead of using points, she coaches in possessions. And in N.C. Central’s 59-58 win against Coppin State Saturday afternoon, Taylor’s coaching methods did just the trick.

NCCU shows heart in last-second win; home streak at 30

Senior Karamo Jawara, who finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds, took a short-range shot but it clanked off the rim. As the ball careened away from the basket and toward players from each team clashing for the rebound, Jordan Parks boxed out his man, grabbed the ball and put it back up for the winning basket 11 seconds to spare.
