MEAC basketball tournament coming up next week in Norfolk
Norfolk officials say the tournament brings in $5 million annually

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) -- Basketball fans, get ready! The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament is right around the corner and the city of Norfolk is ready to welcome all its fans.

The tournament is held at Scope in downtown Norfolk and Visit Norfolk president and CEO Kurt Krause says hotels are booked in anticipation.

“This is a reunion for people. It’s for fraternities, sororities, schools. It’s an opportunity for the city to show off what a great location it is, what a great destination it is,” Krause said.

Krause says that the revenue from the tournament has brought in just under $5 million annually in recent years.

CIAA Advisory Board member speaks frankly about tournament's move to Baltimore

1.  “Charlotte had been giving us about 1.1 million in scholarship dollars. Baltimore is going to give us $1.5 million in the first year, $1.7 million in the second year, $1.9 million in the third year”, Anderson said.

2.  The Fayetteville State chancellor says, in addition, when he first came to Charlotte 11 years ago, the CIAA had six days at the Spectrum Center. The early round games now are played at the Bojangles Coliseum and only the semi-finals and championship games are played at the Spectrum Center.

“We’re down to two days now. We’ve been replaced. For example, this week alone, the Charlotte Hornets played home games, they always played away, and then the World Wide Wrestling, that fake wrestling, bumped us. How could fake wrestling bump us”, Anderson said.

3.   He also lamented what he believes is price gouging fans have experienced over the years in Charlotte, as well as what he called a CIAA tax.

“I didn’t believe it but I went to one of the restaurants where somebody told me it happened. And literally on your bill, there was something called a CIAA tax. I went over to another table where some locals were also having dinner. They didn’t have that on their bill” Anderson said.

The CIAA board chair said he felt that was unethical. Beyond that, he says, he can’t get over why Spectrum Management doesn’t want the tournament in Charlotte.

The nation's No. 1 3-pointer shooter plays for Norfolk State University

A transfer from Owens Community College in Perrysburg, Ohio, Jamerson is shooting 51.7 percent from long range, more than 3 percentage points better than anyone else. His lights-out 7-for-7 performance in a 75-71 overtime win over North Carolina Central last Saturday bolstered his chances to finish as the nation’s leader with four regular-season games to go, and he continues to marvel teammates with his uncanny accuracy.
