Ingram, Moton honored by MEAC

Posted March 10

NC Central head coach LeVelle Moton sits down with his team during their game against NC State at the PNC Arena, Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013.

— After racking up 25 wins and a 15-1 record in the conference, the accolades came flowing for North Carolina Central University as senior Jeremy Ingram (Charlotte, N.C.) was named MEAC Player of the Year, fifth year head coach LeVelle Moton earned Coach of the Year honors, while senior Emanuel Chapman (Raleigh, N.C.) was named third team All-MEAC, the league announced on Monday.

Ingram finished the regular season averaging 20.2 points a game, which was second in the league, currently No. 22 in the nation. He becomes the second Eagle all-time to earn player of the year honors and to score more than 600 points in a season since the 1980-81 campaign. Moton was the only other student-athlete to don the maroon and gray to accomplish such a feat, earning CIAA Player of the Year in 1996 and scoring 611 points in the 1994-95 campaign. Ingram scored 30 more points on four occasions, including a career-high 38 points in the maroon and gray’s first-ever road win at Tiger Arena on Feb. 17. He also earned MEAC Player of the Week honors four times on the year.

Moton’s squad won the MEAC’s regular season title, finishing 25-5 overall, 15-1 in league play to earn the school’s first regular season championship at the NCAA Division I level. The 25 regular season victories are the second-most wins since John McLendon’s 1950-51 Eagles went 26-5 in the regular season. Over the past two seasons, Moton and his troops are 30-2 in the conference and have compiled 23 consecutive wins at home, and enter the MEAC Tournament riding a 17-game winning streak.

Chapman topped the MEAC in assists averaging 6.8 helpers per game, which is currently fifth in the nation. He also set the single-season record at NCCU with 203, passing Donald Sinclair in the 1979-80 campaign who racked up 200 for the maroon and gray. Chapman also topped the conference in steals averaging 2.2 thefts per game, while also averaging 6.6 points per contest. The selfless point guard scored in double figures six times in the regular season, including a career-high 18 points in the huge 82-72 overtime upset over NC State on Nov. 20, 2013. He recorded his first career double-double on Feb. 8 at home against Bethune-Cookman by scoring 14 points and dishing out 11 assists in the victory over the Wildcats.

NCCU will take on the winner of the eighth-seeded Bison of Howard University and the ninth-seeded Aggies of North Carolina A&T on Wednesday, March 12 at 6:00 p.m. from the Norfolk Scope Arena in Norfolk, Va.

    I agree and heard about he and Roy. Listen to him on 99.9 he said he attended a coaching clinic given by Mike Tomlin. He said he was a bit nervous at first because when Tomlin walked in the room got quiet. Levelle said now that's called respect. Love for him to take the Wake job if it comes open. App. State my be too far away. LOL!

    Agree, Toddler. I wouldn't be surprised to see Wake or App State approach Moton. He is wise beyond his years. He spoke about something Roy told him when he got the HC job at Central: that it means so much more to someone who coaches at the school they went to and played for. Thought that was great that Moton remembered it five years later.

  • Toddler10-21 Mar 10, 9:29 p.m.

    He is a great guy and cares. The big time job will come, but it will be hard for him to leave NCCU. He also loves Raleigh and the community he grew up in. He should be interviewed for any job opening. Very smart and humble young man!

    True Gunny about Moton. This team and coach Moton dont get the credit they deserve.

    Any team that looks past Central will regret it! And I hope Central appreciates what they have in Moton. I think they do, but it's only a matter of time before other schools come calling for him. He' so humble and cares deeply about Central. I hope he stays there for a long time. He does so much more than coach the b ball team! I'm really impressed when I see and hear him in interviews. Great man.

    Congratulations to NCCU. They have a great team of solid players, and obviously a great coach too. Hope they can keep it going-- and win.

  • GunnyGoesBaaaarf Mar 10, 3:45 p.m.

    What a season Central has had! Sure hope they win the MEAC Tourney after winning the regular season. Would love to see them beat some teams in the NCAAT.

    Good for Moton, a man who's more than a coach, albeit a terrific one; he's a role model and father figure to the players on his team, and Central is so fortunate to have him leading their men's b ball program.
