NC Eagles http://wunc.org en Eagles Soar Into D1 http://wunc.org/post/eagles-soar-d1 <p>The five-year wait is now over, and North Carolina Central is officially a member of the NCAA’s Division I.<br>&nbsp;</p><p>The NC Central Board of Trustees voted back in 2005 to move from division 2 to division one. The move was somewhat controversial, as it meant the Eagles would no longer play in the popular CIAA basketball tournament.</p><p>The Eagles then played as an independent with no conference affiliation. Last year, NC Central was a provisional member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.</p> Fri, 12 Aug 2011 08:10:00 +0000 Dave DeWitt 8241 at http://wunc.org
