NSU rallies past S.C. State, reaches MEAC tournament semifinals

NORFOLK (WAVY) – Jeff Short scored a game-high 25 points and led Norfolk State past a pesky South Carolina State team 68-54 on Wednesday night. With the win at Scope, the Spartans (20-12, 12-4) advance to the semifinal round of the MEAC Tournament, where they’ll face the winner of Hampton-Maryland-Eastern Shore on Friday.

D’Shon Taylor added 16 points and 7 rebounds for Norfolk State, who trailed by as many as 15 in the first half thanks to the hot hand of the Bulldogs’ Edward Stephens. Stephens scored 12 thanks t 4-of-4 3-point shooting in the first half, but only managed one point the rest of the way.
