North Carolina A&T 112, Carver College 46

EAST GREENSBORO – The North Carolina A&T men’s basketball team defeated the Carver Cougars, 112-46, on Saturday evening inside the Corbett Sports Center in non-conference action.

N.C. A&T head coach Will Jones and his staff scheduled the game during the week after their original two contests against Florida A&M planned for Saturday and Sunday got postponed. 

“It was good to be playing,” said Jones. “We were the only team on our side of the division to be able to play tonight, and I thought it was important to try to keep our guys on a normal routine and get a game in this week.”

It was a record-setting offensive onslaught for the Aggies (6-9, 2-0 MEAC) from the tip. Sophomore Fred Cleveland, Jr. scored a season-high 17 points. Senior guard Darus Maddox notched a new career-high with 16 points.

Fifteen different Aggie players scored during the contest, and as a team, N.C. A&T shot 62.1 percent from the field and 60 percent from 3-point range.
