Has an HBCU women's basketball team ever defeated the No. 1 team in NCAA Division II?

Sports Forum / Xavier (New Orleans) beat UCLA in women's doubles
« on: November 12, 2019, 03:15:34 PM »
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.

Xavier women's tennis won 5-3 Sunday at West Florida, the second-ranked team in NCAA Division II. Xavier is ranked fourth in the NAIA and will enter nationals in mid-May with a 14-dual win streak.

Sports Forum / 75 years ago today -- July 29, 1940
« on: July 29, 2015, 11:47:53 AM »
On July 29, 1940 — 75 years ago today and nearly seven years before Jackie Robinson became the first African-American player in the modern era of Major League Baseball — Jimmie McDaniel of ‪Xavier University of Louisiana‬ played Grand Slam winner Don Budge in New York City in what has been called the first important interracial tennis match. Budge won the exhibition, played before approximately 2,000 spectators at Harlem's Cosmopolitan Tennis Club, 6-1, 6-2 but praised McDaniel's skills afterward. The United States Tennis Association website calls McDaniel the greatest black player of the pre-war (World War II) era.

Xavier's women reached the national semifinals for the second consecutive year.
