Despite NCAA loss, NCCU makes mark on national scene

When you’re N.C. Central and sharing Tobacco Road with basketball behemoths like Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State, there’s a premium on elbow room. “You’re constantly fighting for respect,” NCCU coach LeVelle Moton said. “... Unfortunately, often times we get lost in the shuffle, but we fight for our respect and hopefully people will take notice and understand that we play great basketball at North Carolina Central, as well.” NCCU put a bow on its season at the AT&T Center on Friday during the second round of the NCAA Tournament, losing 93-75 to Iowa State.
