Does ECSU have a new women’s coach?
Thursday, September 29, 2016
CC heard a wild rumor last weekend. We overheard – OK we were eavesdropping – several people say that former CIAA men’s basketball coach John Hill has taken the women’s basketball job at Elizabeth City State. We say CIAA coach because Hill has made more rounds in the conference than a hooker at a political convention. Of course,
 
Loss puts Bethune on the clock
Thursday, September 29, 2016
North Carolina Central football coach Jerry Mack admitted this week that his team had marked Saturday’s game against Bethune-Cookman on their calendar. You know the story by now: The Eagles’ loss to the Wildcats last season cost them the Celebration Bowl. So their rallying this season has been to “finish” each game.
 
One winless Triangle team remains
Thursday, September 29, 2016
The last of the CIAA unbeatens fell when Virginia State lost to Winston-Salem State. Tennessee State and Tuskegee, however, kept their records unblemished. N.C. Central (1-0 MEAC, 2-2) vs. Bethune-Cookman (0-3) Coach Jerry Mack managed to keep his team focused on Norfolk State and not this Saturday’s game at Bethune-Cookman. The Eagles have a score
 
Anthem protests spread to colleges and WNBA
Monday, September 26, 2016
NEW YORK – Liberty guard Brittany Boyd sat on the bench with her head bowed in prayer during the national anthem before a WNBA playoff game. Hours earlier, college football players for Michigan and Michigan State, along with a group of students at North Carolina, raised their fists during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Since 49ers
 
SIAC partners with grooming company
Friday, September 23, 2016
The SIAC, the “other” Division II HBCU conference, has partnered with Walker & Company’s Bevel to become its official grooming partner for the conference. Bevel helps reduce razor bumps and skin irritation, something a lot of black men have trouble with from shaving. Basketball, already? The CIAA Basketball Media Day is Oct. 6 at the
 
Conference play begins for area teams
Friday, September 23, 2016
Virginia State is the last undefeated team in the CIAA. The Trojans travel to Winston-Salem State this weekend in a game that has so many meanings on so many levels. Tennessee State, of the Ohio Valley Conference, is the other undefeated HBCU squad after holding off Bethune-Cookman last weekend 31-24. N.C. Central (1-2) vs. Norfolk State (1-2) The
 
A second chance at a first impression
Wednesday, September 21, 2016
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – This was going to be one of those throwaway writes about two childhood friends getting to see each other play on national television. “Check out my boy Kermit scoring for the ‘Noles.” “Man, did Womack destroy that guy.” No, Womack deserves more than a throwaway piece. (So does Whitfield, but
 
N.C. A&T win raises the bar for other HBCUs
Thursday, September 15, 2016
For a minute there, I thought I was watching a rerun of that cult classic “The Body Snatchers.” There was N.C. A&T football coach Rod Broadway smiling on the sideline and pumping his fists like a fan at a Jay-Z concert. This couldn’t possibly be the normally stoic Broadway who deadpans his way each week through the MEAC teleconference
