FAMU was paced by junior Shakerrya Morrison and senior Alicia McCray, who each carded a double-double of 11 points and 13 rebounds. McCray added six blocks in her best defensive output of the season.
“I’ve been waiting all season on her to play like that,” Head Coach LeDawn Gibson said of McCray. “It was a good team effort to beat a solid Norfolk State team. I’ve felt all year that this team could beat any team in our conference. It’s not easy to explain why we seem to drop games we surely should have won, while occasionally winning ones we weren’t expected to,” Gibson added.
