The Florida A&M University men’s basketball team lost a tough 81-63 battle in another Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference rivalry match-up against N.C. Central University Monday night

The Rattlers shot 45.1 percent from the field making 23 of 51 shot attempts.

Head coach Byron Samuels was disappointed in the loss.

“They put us in some tough situations. Defensively, it was tough to guard them at times. They shot 50 percent from the floor, and got to the free throw line quite a bit, and a lot of that had to do with us,” Samuels said.

Despite the loss, Samuels thought freshman forward Isaiah Omoregie played well. Isaiah Omoregie lead the team in scoring with 16 points making seven of his nine shots.

Star players Malcolm Bernard and Craig Bowman both finished in double figures however, Bernard felt that the team was out of sync.

“I don’t think we were intense enough, I thought we came out flat, and I don’t think we played together at all,” Malcolm said.

Samuels mentioned there is something going on with the team’s chemistry.

“We have a long way to go. We have to figure it out. It’s disappointing not to play better, especially at home when you have a good crowd against a good opponent,” Samuels said.

The Rattlers had a tough night controlling the ball, turning it over 13 times. The team has to find a way to play together and be aggressive.

“The game came down to hustling and we didn’t have it tonight. We didn’t have any hustle at all,” Bowman said.

The team lost their last three games, and their record is now (6-17, 3-6).

The FAMU men’s basketball team looks to bounce back with a victory against Delaware State University at 8 p.m. in the Al Lawson Center.
