CALGARY, Alta. — Back when the 2016-17 season began, some ‘experts’ had the North Carolina Central Eagles dropping off a bit this season in the MEAC standings.
However, LeVelle Moton has the Eagles right at the top of the conference once again, and they are a threat to knock off a power conference team or two if they are able to punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.
As of February 13th, the Eagles are the only team in the MEAC with a record above .500 for the year. They also have a half-game lead atop the conference standings over the Norfolk State Spartans.
A big reason for the Eagles’ success this year has been the play of senior guard Patrick Cole. In his second year at North Carolina Central, the 6’5” guard has continued to stuff the stat sheet on both ends of the floor. Cole possesses a strong all-round game, and he is one of the best all-round players in the country.
This past week was another perfect example of his talents on both ends of the court. Cole scored 27 points in each of the Eagles’ two wins this past week, and shot 9-of-18 on both nights.
For his efforts this past week, North Carolina Central senior Patrick Cole has been named the College Court Report Player of the Week for the week of February 6 – 12, 2017! Continue reading College Court Report Player of the Week: Patrick Cole, North Carolina Central Eagles
