Norfolk State tries to find form, catch MEAC leaders

NORFOLK, Virginia -- Norfolk State's players and coaches know their backs are perilously close to the proverbial wall.

They also know that in the wild world of the MEAC, they still have an outside chance.

The Spartans (2-5, 2-2 MEAC) will look to snap a two-game league losing streak when they visit North Carolina Central at 2 p.m. today. The game represents NSU's latest opportunity to get back on track while hoping someone - two someones, actually - can knock off unbeaten N.C. A&T over the season's final four weeks.

In addition to beating N.C. Central (4-3, 3-1), the Spartans also need one-loss teams Bethune-Cookman and South Carolina State to falter at some point.

Last season, five teams finished tied for first place in the league with two losses each. The Spartans' best hope is that it happens again.
