Thank you, FunCkMaster and Jay_Thomas. Thanks to all who voted for my school. XULA lost to the Tufts men in the overall final, but this was an exciting run for the Gold Nuggets.
It's been quite a fantasy season for XULA...an 11-1 record so far.
• 5-0 men's basketball -- beat 5 NCAA DI schools in the Black College Sports Network fantasy tournament. And look who showed up for the Gold Rush's victory against Prairie View A&M in the final: https://twitter.com/xulagold/status/1248765852960292865
• 4-1 women's tennis -- it's a thrill to beat Princeton, Pepperdine and North Carolina in anything
• 2-0 women's basketball -- advanced to the quarterfinals of its Black College Sports Network fantasy tournament. Current round ends at 2 p.m. CDT Easter Sunday.

Beat North Carolina.
Beat Hawaii Pacific.
That makes XULA the women's champion. Now the Gold Nuggets face men's champion Tufts for the overall title.
XULA vs. Tufts
polls close Friday, April 10 at 3:30 p.m. CDT
poll at the bottom of the tweet . . . select XULA
(don't love the post; that would give the vote to Tufts)
Thank you for your votes.

XULA advanced over Princeton with nearly 60 percent of the vote. Thank you to all on this board who voted. Next: Pepperdine middle of next week. I hope you'll vote for the Gold Nuggets again.

Have any HBCUs in NCAA Division II beaten a No. 1 team?

Xavier University of Louisiana today became the first HBCU volleyball program to win a match at NAIA nationals since Saint Augustine's in 1981.
XULA 3, William Carey 0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-13).

It happened last week in a consolation round of the ITA National Fall Championships at Newport Beach, Calif. The UCLA team was ranked 37th in NCAA Division I.
When the ITA NAIA preseason rankings are announced in a few weeks, expect Xavier's Angela Charles-Alfred and Lailaa Bashir to be No. 1. They've had a great fall season.

XULA teams were 4-0 Saturday, all on the road.

Women's basketball (1-1) won 64-53 at Lawrence Tech.
Both basketball teams were preseason No. 2 picks in the GCAC.

Men's basketball: XULA was scheduled to play in a 3-day Los Angeles HBCU event, Hoopin' in Holidays Tournament, Dec. 27-29, 2006. I never was told what teams would be there, what the venue was or who was the sponsor. The tournament never happened.
