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

Talladega beat NAIA No. 1 Freed-Hardeman 77-68 Friday.

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

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.

Volleyball (24-5) won twice in Hattiesburg, beating Bethel (Tenn.) and William Carey in three sets apiece. Gold Nuggets have won 5 straight and 16 of their last 17 matches.

Men's basketball (1-1) won 65-54 at Coastal Georgia.

Women's basketball (1-1) won 64-53 at Lawrence Tech.

Both basketball teams were preseason No. 2 picks in the GCAC.

UST Volleyball Classic in Houston
XULA 3, St. Thomas (Texas) 0 (25-21, 25-15, 25-19)
Gold Nuggets are 20-5 and reached 20 wins for the third consecutive season.

UST Volleyball Classic at Houston
Huston-Tillotson 3, XULA 2 (17-25, 26-24, 25-21, 22-25, 15-10)
HT is 16-4 and has won 10 straight. Rams snap 11-match win streak of XULA, which is 19-5.
XULA's Kayla Black tied her school record for kills in a match with 27.

Friday volleyball in Houston: XULA 3, Wiley 1 (25-15, 16-25, 25-16, 25-21)

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.

Xavier volleyball
18-4 overall, 9-0 GCAC
current win streak: 10

magic number 3 to win a 9th straight regular-season championship

Friday: won at Mobile....first-ever season sweep of the Rams

Saturday: beat Talladega and Edward Waters on the road....junior outside hitter Kayla Black --granddaughter of Grambling/NFL QB James "Shack" Harris -- had 14 kills, 19 digs and school-record-tying 9 aces against Talladega.

Volleyball: Xavier Gold Nuggets beat SUNO and Tougaloo.
Xavier is 15-4 overall, 7-0 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference.

Also at that event, SUNO track and field coach Younne Reid received the Eddie Robinson Award.

But will they be competitive in other sports too?
Men's track won the last five GCAC outdoor team championships but has not produced many qualifiers for NAIA nationals.

Women's track was second to Xavier in the GCAC last season.

Volleyball is 0-18 all-time against Xavier, so they do not appear to be a threat to Spring Hill at this time.

Women's basketball won 103 games the last five seasons but has not qualified for NAIA nationals since 2007.

Men's basketball has not qualified for nationals since 2008...0-4 in four trips to nationals. Sixth place in GCAC last season. Second-year coach Frederick Summers was the GCAC Coach of the Year at Talladega in 2017-18.

Baseball and softball both finished eight games below .500 last season. Softball did qualify for NAIA nationals opening round, then got shut out in both games. Baseball reached 30 wins four straight years from 2015-18.

Men's cross country upset Xavier for the 2017 GCAC team title, and junior Solomon Stevens was the GCAC individual champ in 2017 and 2018. But his best 8K time at the conference meet would not put him in the top 10 at last year's SIAC meet.

Women's cross country was fourth in the GCAC last season. Best finisher's time would have ranked 26th at SIAC meet.

In the GCAC all-sports standings of 2018-19, Xavier was first with 56 1/2 points, and Edward Waters was second with 41.

WSSU should join the NAIA. It's less expensive to operate in the NAIA, and there will be a nearby conference home for all its teams. The competition is pretty good, too.
