GREENSBORO – After a six year hiatus, the North Carolina A&T volleyball team will be making an appearance in the MEAC tournament  against a team it has not played in seven years.

The MEAC Volleyball Championship Tournament will be hosted by Coppin State at the Physical Education Complex in Baltimore beginning on Nov. 15. 

 The Aggies (7-24 overall) who earned the second seed in the MEAC Southern Division (6-4) will open the tournament in a quarterfinals match against Howard (20-10), the No. 3 seed in the northern division (8-4) on Friday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m.  This will mark the first meeting between the two teams since the Aggies defeated the Bison 3-1 in a match played in Orangeburg, S.C., as a part of the old MEAC Roundup on Oct. 15, 2006.

 In order to advance to the semifinals on Saturday, Nov. 16 the Aggies will have to defeat Howard. The winner of the A&T/HU match will face the winner of the Hampton/Bethune-Cookman match on Saturday at noon. The championship is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 17 at noon and will be streamed live on www.MEACSports.com.

 The Bison made the most of their 2013 season and tallied 20 wins after going 1-23 last year. Howard has posted the best overall record in the MEAC this season. The Aggies, however, are coming off its best year since the 2007 season when they finished with an overall record of 8-26.

 In the southern division, Florida A&M (14-6 overall, 10-0 MEAC) garnered the No. 1 seed. S.C. State (6-21, 5-5) claimed the third seed and BCU (6-26, 5-5) grabbed the fourth seed.

 Hampton (16-10, 10-2), the preseason northern favorite seized the No. 1 seed with its only two losses in the conference coming from Coppin State (13-15, 8-4) and Morgan State (12-13, 7-5), who enter the tournament as the second and fourth seeds respectively.
