Men's Basketball Wins First Ever EMAC Contest

Elizabeth City, N.C. - The men's basketball team traveled to Elizabeth City, NC to take on Mid-Atlantic Christian University in their first ever EMAC matchup. The Owls struck first, taking an early 18 point lead. The Mustangs would fight back and the teams would go into the half deadlocked at 47. 

The second half the Owls would strike again, taking their lead to 10 points, but were unable to hold on to it.

The Owls came out victorious with a final score of 95-91. 

"We aren't playing great basketball right now, but a road win is never easy to come across, and we made it happen. Really proud of our fight. We have work to do, and we will do it and get ready for Alice Lloyd."
