N.C. Central has a real two-game winning streak against Division I opposition in men's basketball, and LeVelle Moton's Eagles will try to keep it alive tonight.

NCCU (6-20) will host independent Longwood (9-16) at 7 p.m. at McDougald-McLendon Gym.

The Eagles, who have beaten visiting Savannah State and Maryland-Eastern Shore over the past week, will try to beat Longwood for the second straight time.

The teams collected a home-court blowout victories against each other last season.
