In order to create a legacy you have to lay a foundation. For the North Carolina Central University Eagles the foundation has been laid and they are now looking to take it to the next level.
The legacy that NCCU is building is off to a good start. Over the last three seasons of college basketball, there has been no team with a better record in conference play than the Eagles.
The dominance of Mid Eastern Athletic Conference basketball hasn’t been in question. The Eagles have won 95% of their games since the 2012-2013 season, posting a record of 46-2 over their MEAC foes. The only teams that have beaten NCCU in that span are Savannah State and Florida A&M.
After two consecutive seasons going 15-1, Head Coach LeVelle Moton has led this team to it’s first undefeated conference title this year after beating North Carolina A&T University to end the season.
Outside of the MEAC Stephen F. Austin, who is in the Southland Conference has posted a 51-3 conference record, and Gonzaga has posted a 48-4 record in the same time span.
Also during the past two years NCCU has been able to post a streak of 34 straight victory over their MEAC Rivals, which is also a top mark in the nation.
