North Carolina A&T women released their 2019-20 schedule last week. Most notable on the nonconference schedule is matchups against North Carolina State, Georgia, Miami, DePaul, Clemson and VCU.

“I’m happy with how our schedule came together this year,” coach Tarrell Robinson said. “While it will provide us with some strong challenges, it only prepares us for what’s to come when we enter conference play. I’m excited to see how this experienced group comes together this season.”

A&T finished 20-12 last season and advanced to the WNIT.

FAMU’s Martin signs contract

Florida A&M alumnus Isaiah Martin recently signed a contract with CSM Galati of Liga Nationala.

Martin played in the Eurobasket Summer League in Las Vegas, and averaged 5.3 points, 5 rebounds and 1.3 steals in three games.

KSU’s Jelks going pro

Kentucky State graduate David Jelks has inked a deal with Tomas de Rocamore of LaLiga Argentina. He is the only American on the roster.

Jelks is the third Thorobred under KSU coach Jamaal Jackson to turn pro. Julius Barton and Toussaint Rose are the others.

"I remembered all the hard work I have put in through the years," he said. "I just stayed locked in and focused on achieving this goal."

Added Jackson: "I'm extremely proud of David and the work that he put in during his three years here. Upon getting hired, David was my first recruit here at Kentucky State. From Day One, he bought in to the values and mission of our program, and he is reaping the rewards of his work."

Jelks averaged 9.3 points and 7.3 rebounds last season.



The Bears released their schedule last week. Shaw will play 27 games – 13 at home. The women open the season November 16 against Meredith College and ends the season on February 22 at Johnson C. Smith. Shaw is coming off a 7-22 season.



The men also will play 13 home games. The Bears open the season Nov. 8 against Frostburg State in the Shaw Classic, and also concludes it at the Golden Bulls. Shaw is coming off a division title and a tournament runner-up finish.
