The City of Norfolk served as the
host venue for the 2013 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Basketball
Tournament. For the next three years,
the Norfolk Scope Arena will be the site for MEAC’s premier athletic
event. This afforded Norfolk State
University the unique opportunity to engage the institution’s alumni and
friends. There were several events
attached to the MEAC Basketball Tournament that were designed to highlight the
achievements of our student athletes.
These events were also being held to inform alumni and friends about the
forward progression of Norfolk State University in its academic pursuits and
community engagement. The engagement
events were co-sponsored by the Norfolk State University Alumni Association, Norfolk
State University Foundation and the Norfolk State University Athletics
A highlight of the MEAC
Tournament was the presentation of the Distinguished Alumni from all of the 13
Member Institutions from the conference.
Dr. Tamara Jones from the Class of 1996 represented Norfolk State
University during Alumni Night at the Tournament. The Men’s & Women’s Basketball teams did
not win the MEAC Tournament, however, that did not dampen the Spartan Pride
that was on display during the week of activities attached to the Tournament.
