GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Bruce Beckford scored 16 points and Austin Witter again paced North Carolina A&T's post play as the Aggies defeated Florida A&M 64-56 Monday night in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference action.

The win was the second straight and fourth in five games for North Carolina A&T (13-12, 6-4), which got eight points and 13 rebounds from Witter. The senior set a career high with 14 boards against Bethune-Cookman on Saturday, and has had double-digit rebounds in three straight games after managing fewer than 10 rebounds in 12 straight contests.

Adrian Powell added 11 points and Lamont Middleton 10 for the Aggies.

North Carolina A&T won despite shooting just 39.3 percent (22 of 56).
