Howard advances to 2nd round of 2012 MEAC tourney

On March 12, 2012

On Tuesday, March 6, Howard University edged North Carolina A & T, 51-50, in the opening round of the 2012 MEAC Men's Basketball Tournament.

Howard guard Calvin Thompson scored 15 points in the game. The teams shot less than 32-percent from the floor and combined for 33 turnovers.

"It was a very physical game with great defense by both teams," said Howard head coach Kevin Nickelberry. "The game plan was to not let them do what they do best—shoot the threes."

Howard (No. 10) played a rested Norfolk State team (No. 2) Wednesday night, March 7. The final score was unavailable at press time.

The Spartans crushed the Bison back in January by 20 points. Howard shot a miserable 27-percent from the floor and 6-percent behind the arc in that game.

The Lady Bison (No. 2) defeated South Carolina State (No. 7), 57-42, in the 2nd round to advance to the semifinals in the 2012 Women's MEAC Championship.
