GREENSBORO, N.C. - Bethune-Cookman's five-game winning streak over North Carolina A&T concluded Saturday as the Aggies posted a 65-55 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory in the Corbett Center.

Lamont Middleton scored 17 points, Adrian Powell added 13 and Austin Witter grabbed 14 rebounds as the Aggies (12-12 overall, 5-4 MEAC) shot 64.7 percent from the field to open up a 16-point lead with 7:19 remaining.

Bethune-Cookman (9-15,4-5) jumped out to leads of 21-10 on a Paul Scotland free throw with 8:24 remaining in the first and 23-13 on an Alex Smith lay-up with 6:21 left in the opening period. However, the Wildcats managed just two points the rest of the half and the Aggies managed a 28-25 advantage at intermission.

The Aggies built their lead to 53-37 on a Jeremy Underwood lay-up with 7:19 left.

Two Brandon Stewart free throws with 4:51 left got B-CU within nine at 55-46, but the Wildcats could come no closer.

Adrien Coleman and Javoris Bryant each led the Wildcats with 12 points and seven rebounds. Kevin Dukes  added nine, and Stewart and Smith each scored eight.

B-CU, which had a two-game winning streak snapped, faces North Carolina Central Monday night at 7:30 p.m.


"When we don't shoot the ball, we struggle. That's the bottom line. If you make shots, you have a chance, if you don't, this is what happens."

"In the first half, we made some shots early and took care of the ball."

"North Carolina A&T capitalized on "live" turnovers ... they were able to get the ball out in transition."

NOTES: Freshman Allan Dempster registered his first career start ... Bryant has now been in double-figures two straight games... Witter's 14 rebounds were the most for a B-CU opponent this season.
