GREENSBORO – Seniors Tracy King and DeAndra Davis of the North Carolina A&T women's basketball team scored in double figures in scoring in a 52-42 win against S.C. State, Monday evening in its regular season home finale at Corbett Sports Center.
The Aggies (23-4 overall) improved to 13-2 in the MEAC and has won nine straight games. A&T clinched the second seed in the conference tournament that will be hosted in Norfolk, Va. A&T will play on Wednesday, March 12 at 2:30 p.m. and will face the winner of the No.7/No.10 game.
King led A&T with 13 points and was 5-for-11 from the field. Davis added 10 points and tallied three assists. Redshirt-sophomore Aprill McRae grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds.
"I thought early in the first half we did a good job of stopping the ball," head coach Tarrell Robinson said. "We did a good job of guarding the ball which is one of the things we wanted to improve on since the last time we played them. I think the contributions of DeAndra Davis and Tracy King in terms of where this program is headed, they were the foundation of it. They've done a great job and we're going to go as far as they take us in terms of their leadership and showing up to play."
