Eagles visit Longwood tourney today

Independent college basketball teams obviously don't play in conference tournaments, and many of them aren't eligible for NCAA post-season play.

So Longwood (8-19) has put together an end-of-season mirror event on its home court, and N.C. Central is part of it.

The Eagles (10-16), who beat the Lancers 74-66 Feb. 26 in Durham, will take them on again today at about 4:30 p.m. at Willett Hall.

That follows a 2 p.m. contest between easy tournament favorite Florida Gulf Coast (22-6) and Seattle (6-22), both of whom like NCCU are still on the reclassification track from NCAA Division II to Division I.

Championship and consolation games are on Sunday.

That won't end the season for NCCU, as the Eagles will visit UNC on March 14 in the Tar Heels' final game before their post-season tournament.

Freshman Joanna Miller (pictured) is NCCU's leading scorer.
