NCCU women's basketball falls to rival Aggies, 60-33

Posted February 23, 2013

Rookie forward Tisha Dixon recorded her third double-double of the season while the North Carolina Central University women’s basketball team dropped a 60-33 decision to the rival North Carolina A&T Lady Aggies on Saturday, Feb. 23 in Durham, N.C., at McDougald-McLendon Gymnasium.

Dixon, a Kinston, N.C., native, finished the contest posting a team-high 14 points while also leading the game with 12 rebounds. In addition to Dixon, fellow freshman Aja Hoyle contributed 11 points for the Lady Eagles while pulling down four boards.

During the rival match-up the Lady Eagles struck first after two made free throws from junior Tenika Neely put NCCU on top 2-0 at the 17:40 mark. The next seven minutes of the ball game saw one tie and three lead changes before the Lady Aggies took control going on an 18-4 run to end the half and take their largest lead of 15 points into the locker room at 28-13.

N.C. A&T started the second half on a 6-0 run before Hoyle ended the scoring drought for NCCU making a jumper with 16:14 left in the game and knocking the lead down under 20 points. The Lady Aggies continued their offensive success taking their largest lead of the contest at 31 with 1:19 left to play. NCCU scored two more baskets before time expired leaving the final margin at 27 as the Lady Eagles fell 60-33.

As a team, NCCU shot 22 percent from the field, pulled down 32 rebounds, dished out eight assists, and shot 9-for-15 from the free throw line at 60 percent.

The Lady Aggies were sparked by Eboni Ross who led the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference match-up with a double-double, scoring 18 points and grasping 10 rebounds, while teammate JaQuayla Berry scored an additional 13 points and pulled down eight boards.

N.C. A&T shot 49 percent from the field collectively, seized 39 rebounds, dished out 16 assists, blocked six Lady Eagle shots and shot 5-for-10 from the charity stripe.

NCCU falls to 1-15 on the season and 1-12 in conference play while the Lady Aggies advance to 18-8 overall and 10-3 in the MEAC.

The Lady Eagles return to action on Saturday, March 2 as NCCU hosts the Tigers from Savannah State. Tipoff for the conference match-up is set for 2 p.m.
