Saturday afternoon in Winston-Salem, NC, the Norfolk State Spartans will battle the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman in the championship game of the 41st-annual Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament.
Neither of these teams have ever won the tournament championship and automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament that comes with a victory. Bethune-Cookman, in fact, had never even made the title game before, but will be there Saturday thanks to a 81-72 win over Hampton in the semifinals.
Norfolk State is in the championship game courtesy of wins over Howard in the quarterfinals and upstart Florida A&M in the semis. Florida A&M was the No. 11 seed in this year's tournament.
