    Kevin Dukes hit two free throws with 3 seconds left to make it a three-point game, and Marc Hill committed a turnover on the Aggies' final possession to end it.

    Nic Simpson scored 25 points to lead N.C. A&T (7-9, 2-1), while Thomas Coleman added 22 points. The Aggies committed 22 turnovers, and the Wildcats managed 13 points off those turnovers in the second half.
