Charlotte, UNC-Wilmington selected to BCA field

Charlotte, the favorite to win the Atlantic 10 in its first season in the league after moving from Conference USA, headlines the eight-team field for the BCA Invitational, to be played Nov. 13-15 at the University of Wyoming.

The 49ers, who in 2005 made their 7th NCAA tournament in the last nine years, will play Coppin State in one of the four opening-round games at the Arena-Auditorium.

Northwestern and Lehigh meet in the other first-round game in Charlotte's half of the bracket.

The other half has Wyoming against Alabama State and North Carolina-Wilmington playing Butler.

The semifinals are Nov. 14, and the championship game is Nov. 15.

North Carolina State won last year's Black Coaches Association Invitational.

Former Bucs steer kids toward better FUTURE

Former East Carolina football stars Troy Smith and Kevin Monroe took 40 eastern North Carolina children to the campus of N.C. A&T as part of FUTURE Inc.’s annual historically black college and university “tour.” The group visited the campus and then took in a water park for a day of community and academics. Monroe's and Smith’s organization has been granted 501 (c) (3) tax status, allowing for donations to the private charitable organization to be treated as tax-deductible. Contributions to the undertaking, which focuses on children in eastern N.C. who are most in need of role models and adult support, can be made by calling Monroe at 252-355-8412 or Smith at 252-258-2814, or by mailing donations to: Future Inc., 1035 Spring Forest Road Suite D-4, Greenville, NC 27834.
