TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida A&M men's basketball team saw their 12 game home streak end Sunday, and for the Rattlers, it was obvious why. Head coach Robert McCullum noted in the loss that North Carolina A&T "outfought" them.

The Aggies had 23 offensive rebounds and 23 points off turnovers, McCullum noted that was a difference-maker in the game.

FAMU is done at the Lawson Center for this season. They have five road games to close out the season before the MEAC Tournament. The loss Sunday stings, but McCullum notes with games left to play, this team can improve and get better.

"It would have kept us in contention for the number one seed," McCullum said. "We would have been tied with these guys. So now, we're now on the road for a while and we have to play them one at a time. We still have a lot of games left to play. There's still lessons to be learned and hopefully, we can benefit from what we've learned about today's game."

The Rattlers return to action on Thursday when they open a three-game road trip at South Carolina State.
