Been attending tournament over fifty years.  Front row and sometimes press row.  Looks like I’m going to have to hold up on the baby’s milk and get that live feed.  Priorities!!!!

Was at the game last night.  Winston-Salem had a full house.  Thanks for the hospitality.  Winston’s #1 is the truth. Shoots with his eyes closed.  Super game.

Some years ago, Polamalu of the STEELERS had real long hair, had made an interception, and got tackled by having his hair pulled. No penalty.

My friend said there is no penalty?!!!

VSU Basketball Picked No. 7 By Street & Smith's
Story Links CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Virginia State University men's basketball team has been ranked No. 7 in the Street & Smith's/Sporting News College Basketball Yearbook's preseason NCAA Division II preview. The  preview article written by small-college basketball expert Chuck Mistovich.
Mistovich provided team capsules for each of his projected NCAA Division II Top 10 for the 2018-19 season along with a 25-man Preseason All-America list featuring 5-man first- and second-team units accompanied by a 15-member honorable mention list. "It's nice to be ranked No. 7 in the country," VSU head coach Lonnie Blow said, "but we're preparing to compete in a very tough non-conference and Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association schedule. We're located in one of the best basketball regions in the country so we know we have a long road ahead of us. Coach Blow earned CIAA Men's Basketball Coach/Atlantic Region Coach of the year honors last season and led the Trojans to another NCAA Division II Tournament bid.

"We're excited to begin preparations for the upcoming season and looking forward to having all 18 guys healthy. Our guys are working hard and focused on getting better every day."
Virginia State University was the only Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association schools to crack the Top 10 but they have plenty of company from the Atlantic Region. The Trojans finished the 2017-18 season with a 25-5 overall and 13-3 conference record.
Last season the Trojans made history by securing the number one spot in the Atlantic Region and hosted the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II Men's Basketball Atlantic Region Tournament.

Key returners to this year's squad include senior guard/forward Cyonte Melvin (Hampton, Va.), guard/forward Walter Williams (Richmond, Va.), guard Brandon Holley (Richmond, Va.), guard Philip Owens (Virginia Beach, Va.), Sophomore William Vedder (Washington, DC) and junior Andrew Corum (Leesburg, Va.).

Cyonte Melvin is looked to be one of the leaders on the floor for the Trojans this upcoming season. Melvin finished last season averaging 10.1 points per game and shot 73% from the free throw line and 47% from the field. During the 17-18 campaign, he secured 113 total rebounds.

Senior Walter Williams also another leader finished last season averaging 9.8 points per game alongside shooting 48% from the field, 37 % from the 3-point line, and 74% from the free throw line.

In addition the Trojans have nine new additions to this roster. The Atlantic Region isn't lacking for star power. The newcomers include Jalen Jackson (6-2/Guard/Cleveland, OH), Tony Richardson (6-9/Center/ Sterling, Va.), Cedric Wiggins (6-0/Guard/Richmond, Va.), Jahmere Howze (6-6/Forward/Cleveland, OH), Armond Griebe (6-7/Forward/Woodbridge, Va.), Tre' Wortham (6-1/Guard/Woodbridge, Va.), Azariah Sykes (6-8/Forward/Richmond, Va.), Kevin Holmes (6-9/Forward/Virginia Beach, Va.), Dallas Wilson (6-7/Forward/Portsmouth, Va.) and Antwan Miles (5-11/Guard/Hampton, Va.).
VSU will start the 2108-19 campaign on Nov. 2, as they travel to take on Norfolk State University for a Division 1 exhibition matchup. Tip-off for the VSU v. NSU game is slated for 7pm at Joseph G. Echols Memorial Hall on the campus of NSU.

They might be talking about the Jets.
Jim Mitchell was picked 71st in the third round by Detroit Lions in 1970.  From Danville,  VA.  A very successful business man.  I know this because I attended V State with him.  Also Google his name.

Robert Prunty, East Carolina’s defensive coordinator this season, has been hired as Hampton University’s 21st head football coach. He will be officially introduced at a 1 p.m. press conference Friday.

Prunty, a native of Chatham, spent the last eight seasons as an assistant coach on the FBS level. He began last fall as East Carolina’s associate head coach and defensive line coach. After the second game, he was promoted to defensive coordinator.

From 2013-16, Prunty was on the staff at Cincinnati, where he was a co-defensive coordinator his last three years. Prior to that, he spent three seasons as the defensive ends coach at Texas Tech. recognized Prunty as his conference’s Recruiter of the Year four times — twice at Cincinnati and twice at Texas Tech.

“Coach Prunty’s record of consistent, sustained, outstanding performance will take our football program to the next level,” Hampton President William R. Harvey said in a statement. “I enthusiastically welcome him to Hampton Nation.”

Prunty’s hire comes at a significant point in the program’s history. Three weeks ago, Hampton announced it will leave the Mid-Eastern Athletic Association for the Big South in July. However, the football team might not be able to make the jump until the 2019 season.

This will be Prunty’s first head-coaching job on the college level.

“I would like to thank President Dr. William R. Harvey and athletic director Eugene Marshall Jr. for this opportunity,” Prunty said in a statement. “I will give all that I have to make this program successful for our university, alumni, fans, and our community.

“There is plenty of work to be done until we reach our goal. But we will all work tirelessly to get us there.”

Prunty, whose age was listed at 52 in ECU’s media guide, will be the Pirates’ fourth coach since 2007. He follows Connell Maynor, who resigned Nov. 20 after his fourth season.

Michael Ketchum, HU’s defensive coordinator the last three seasons, has been the interim head coach since Maynor’s departure.

Prunty brings Virginia roots to HU. He was the head coach at Hargrave Military Academy in his hometown of Chatham from 2002-09. Before that, he was the head coach at Gretna High from 1993-2001.

Gretna’s Hawks had lost 44 consecutive games before he took over. In his third season, they finished 7-3. He laid the foundation for Gretna to win four state championships from 2003-08.

Prunty is a 1988 graduate of Alabama A&M, where he received his degree in social work.
