The North Carolina Central Eagles dominated the Florida A&M Rattlers in all aspects of the game to take a 78-61 win at the Alfred Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center and Teaching Gymnasium.

Yannick Crowder led the Rattlers in scoring with 17 points. Amin Stevens added 15, while Reggie Lewis chipped in 10 points. Stevens completed the double-double with 11 rebounds. Crowder continued his impressive pace with four blocked shots.
The Rattlers were done in by poor shooting, and what head coach Clemon Johnson described as poor effort. “We just didn’t put forth the effort tonight. It’s a team still trying to grow up and it caught us. We kind of went through the motions for 35 minutes tonight and played for five minutes. I told them in the locker room we were playing like we were hoping to win…not playing to win,” A disappointed Johnson said.
The Rattlers shot a dismal 14-of-25 (56 percent) from the field in the first half and 6-for-24 (25 percent) in the second half for a game total of 40.8 percent. The stats from long range offered a dreary performance as well with FAMU shooting 3-for-17 from 3-point range, to finish with 17.6 percent for the game.
