N.C. Central becomes the first Triangle Division I college basketball team to finish its season tonight, when LeVelle Moton's men's squad visits independent Longwood in the back end of a home-and home set.

The Eagles have won two straight in the series, prevailing 81-78 at McDougald-McLendon Gym 12 days ago.

With seven wins, Moton (pictured) has led his alma mater to its best season since 2006-07 in his first season as head coach.

NCCU has played an independent schedule this season. Next season the Eagles are set to play a MEAC regular-season slate, although they are will not be eligible for the conference tournament and post-season play until 2012.
