March Madness has started and the 2011 MEAC Tournament will begin tomorrow from The Joel Coliseum, home of Wake Forest University. 11 teams vining for the richest prize in mid-major sports: to become a MEAC Champion and a trip to the Big Dance (NCAA Tournament).
Both the Delaware State Men and Lady hornets basketball team will play 1st round games.
The Lady hornets will play UMES for the 3rd time this season. During the regular season the lady hornets won in overtime at home 73-67, however last Thursday on the road the lady hornet lost 55-49. If the lady hornets is able to beat UMES, they have to have a good half court offense, score points in the paint, and pervent turnovers.
Meanwhile the Hornet men will playing South Carolina State. In their first and only meeting in January, Jay Threatt scored the game winning jumper as time expired as the Hornets beat the Bulldogs 61-60. In order for the Hornets to win the game, they need to rebound better, attack the paint, and stop settling for 3 point shots. Also the defense needs to be crisp and fresh from start to finished.
Even I won't be there at the MEAC Tournament, I will catch all the action online on meacsports.com and 1290theticket.com.
Good luck to the DSU Hornets basketball teams in the MEAC tournament.
