DAYTONA BEACH, Florida -- Alcorn State first-year coach Fred McNair will have to wait one more week for his debut.
The Braves had their game against Bethune-Cookman on Sunday cancelled in the second quarter follow a nearly three-hour delay because of inclement weather. They led 13-7 with 7:14 remaining in the first half in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge in Daytona Beach, Florida.
“Well, you know, it’s kind of frustrating,” McNair said, according to comments posted on Alcorn State’s athletics website. “You want to see what kind of players you’re putting on the field. I think the first quarter and a half was trying to see what you’ve been working toward in camp. It’s just frustrating because it’s the first game and the kids wanted to play.
“We just have to go back and evaluate what we have, see what kind of mistakes we made and learn from those. I saw a lot of good things. This team is going to be very good once we get a hold of a few things and correct everything we need to correct.”
