MEAC Tournament 2012 Schedule, Day Two: Top Seeds Come Out To Play

After a flurry of action during day one of the MEAC Tournament, the second round of games is settled and set to being tonight. You can find the full tournament bracket here, but here are the round two match-ups:

Wednesday

6 p.m.: No. 1 Savannah State vs. No. 8 Hampton
8 p.m.: No. 2 Norfolk State vs. No. 10 Howard

Thursday

6 p.m.: No. 3 Delaware State vs. No. 11 Florida A&M
8 p.m.: No. 5 North Carolina Central vs. No. 4 Bethune-Cookman

The winner of Norfolk/Howard will go on to face the winner of NCCU/Bethune-Cookman in the semifinals, while the winning of Savannah/Hampton will face the winner of Delaware/Florida. The semifinals are set for Friday night, and the finals on Saturday.

Florida A&M completed the biggest upset of the first round last night, beating No. 6 Coppin State 74-72 after trailing by 15 points at one point in the game. They will have an uphill battle ahead of them against No. 3 Delaware State, but if nothing else, it was a good accomplishment for the Rattlers to get past the first round.
