NCCU Eagles take flight to tip off hoops season

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- The NC Central men's and women's basketball team tipped off the 2018-19 hoops season on Wednesday night at McDougland-McLendon Arena.

"Flight Night" consisted of music, a skills competition and of course a dunk contest.

The men won the MEAC Tournament last season before being quickly eliminated in the NCAA tournament. They're hoping for a stronger finish this season.
