The farthest-flung teams in the MEAC go at it tonight in sunny Florida; northeast corner Delaware State (15-1, six straight wins) and far southeastern representative Bethune-Cookman (10-5, four straight) also happen to be the two hottest teams in the league. DSU has dominated the league for the second straight season, using a deliberate style (58.6 possessions per 40 minutes, fourth-slowest in D1) to cover their rebounding issues (24.6 per game, fourth-worst in D1). The Hornets are led by Jahsha Bluntt
, a 6-6 backcourter in a league with more than a few 6-6 power forwards.It's good to see BCC have success. They've spent the last two years stuck in 8th place with sub-.500 records, and their calling card is the steal: 9.4 per game, 30th in the country. Clifford Reed's Wildcats are still glowing from their guarantee-game upset over South Florida
; even though USF is 0-13 in their league, they're still a Big East team.
