Sports Forum / Bucks Black female owner getting no publicity
« on: Yesterday at 11:10:34 PM »
MILWAUKEE – Valerie Daniels-Carter, a minority owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, has been a sports fan all her life.
Growing up on the northside of Milwaukee, Daniels-Carter was coming of age right around the time the hometown Bucks drafted a 7-footer out of UCLA named Lew Alcindor. In 1971, Alcindor (now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) led the Bucks to their lone NBA championship in franchise history, which Daniels-Carter calls an “electrifying time” in the city’s history.

ESPN is placing HBCU football front and center. A sports media analyst explains what it mea

In the coming weeks, HBCU football will be featured among a lineup of nationally televised games backed by ESPN.

The Jackson State-Southern matchup on April 3 and the Jackson State Alabama-A&M matchup on April 10 will be televised on ESPN after originally being slated to air on ESPNU.

On Thursday, it was announced that the April 10 Delaware-Delaware State game will be elevated up the ESPN totem pole to ESPN 2.

They are in a series of games this season that have been flexed to another ESPN tier. The March 14 Jackson State-Mississippi Valley State game was moved from ESPN3 to ESPN2. Last Saturday’s Alabama State-Jackson State game also shifted to ESPN2.

Change is good’: Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M excited to join HBCU ‘power conference

Two of the most highly anticipated SWAC conference games of the 2021 season will involve Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman.
While the Rattlers and the Wildcats have played against SWAC schools as members of the MEAC in classic and non-conference showdowns over the years, prior to the upcoming campaign, few could have imagined that a FAMU-Jackson State clash or Florida Classic contest would become staples of the league.
The shift now leaves the SWAC and both Florida HBCUs with much stronger brands and more exposure in what is now arguably the premier conference in the FCS.

He's just copying off of our fabulous commissioner led.

NFL teams have been warned they could forfeit a game due to a Covid-19 outbreak among non-vaccinated players, and players on both teams wouldn’t get paid that week.
“As we learned last year, we can play a full season if we maintain a firm commitment to adhering to our health and safety protocols and to making needed adjustments in response to changing conditions,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday in a memo sent to clubs that was obtained by The Associated Press.

Three takeaways from SWAC Media Day

Arkansas Pine-Bluff received a season’s worth of bulletin board material before the first microphone was turned on. Earlier, the league released predicted division finishes and the preseason all-conference teams, voted on by the coaches and sports information directors. The Lions, who won the West division before losing to Alabama A&M in the SWAC title game, were voted fifth among six teams, ahead of only Texas Southern. Even more unusual, UAPB led the league with players named to 11 positions on the first and second teams on the preseason all-conference teams, one better than Southern’s 10.

All parties happy: Southern, SWAC happy Florida A&M now member of league

Southern University and Florida A&M fought tooth and nail on the football field, and beyond, in one of the HBCU’s longest annual rivalries.
By the late 1990’s the series, which began in 1946, got so  heated the schools decided to break it off after the 2001 game. The Rattlers then found a way to symbolize what would become a “cooling off” period rather than an end.

#BREAKING: Southern University President Dr. Ray Belton announces retirement as President-Chancellor of the Southern University system. Belton’s retirement is effective Fall 2022.

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Southern University System President and Chancellor of Southern University A&M College, Dr. Ray Belton has announced his retirement.
Belton announced during a Board of Supervisors meeting Friday, July 16, that his retirement will be effective Fall 2022.
“By 2022, I will have served as a chief executive officer for more than 21 years, the first 14 years as chancellor of Southern University Shreveport and then, for seven years as president-chancellor for the System and SUBR,” Belton said. “This also will mark 35 years of service with the University. Over the course of my tenure, I have had the great fortune to work with some exceptionally talented colleagues. Together, I believe our work has enabled us to position the University in a manner that it will continue to be seen as a premier institution within the higher education community.”
Belton made history becoming Southern University’s first president-chancellor when the Southern University System Board of Supervisors combined the roles in 2015.

Catavia Buck this is in Virginia Beach but I swear they sound like they are straight outta New Orleans or some part of  south Louisiana.

Texas Southern adds U of Houston shot blocker

Texas Southern University head coach Johnny Jones has announced that former University of Houston forward/center Brison Gresham will join the program for the 2021-22 season.
"We're excited about the addition of Brison to our program," said Jones. "He's going to bring a much-needed presence to our team in the paint on both ends of the court. He has the athletic ability to guard on the perimeter and his ability to block shots on the inside and rebound will be something we'll certainty welcome. This will really help to create an opportunity for us to address the concern we had last year with the lack of depth inside. This certainly will answer those questions."
The 6-8, 230-pound Gresham is a native of New Orleans, La. and provides Texas Southern immediate depth and experience in the paint. He started 19 games at UH in 2020-21 while seeing action in 31 games as UH advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 1984. Gresham also adds an additional veteran with postseason experience with an appearance in the 2019 NCAA Sweet 16 round against Kentucky. In 2018-19, Gresham tied a school record with 37 games played.
