North Carolina Central has had a great season this year. They are 13-0 in MEAC play, have an overall record of 21-6, and according to the College Insider poll, they are rank No. 25–just only 5 points behind Toledo who is rank No. 24.
NCCU has many doubters. A dual showing of the AP Top 25 poll and USA Today Coaches poll appears on ESPN that makes no mention of NCCU Men’s Basketball in the Top 25, or receiving any votes to be in the Top 25.
Providence is ranked 25 with 8 loses in The AP Top 25. Michigan State is also ranked 25 in the USA Today Coaches Poll with 8 loses, respectively.
All eyes are on NCCU as they are set to take on Bethune-Cookman this Saturday at 4pm on their home court. NCCU has won 33 straight games on their home court. Only two teams have a longer home streak than NCCU. Arizona has 36 consecutive home game wins and Gonzaga has 40 home court wins.
