Golden Bulls hit buzzer-beater to eliminate Hawks in OT Thriller
Roddric Ross’ three-point basket with 2.6 seconds left in overtime capped off a rally that saw the Johnson C. Smith Golden Bulls erase a ten-point deficit in the final 4:44 of regulation to defeat the Chowan Hawks 77-74 Monday night in the opening round game of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Men’s Tournament at the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Not a bad way to send Chowan packing to their new conference.
Likewise with Claflin eliminating Chowan’s women. Seems apropriate, IMO.
What new conference?
Chowan is joining "Conference Carolinas" in all sports except of football beginning next school year. This is what made Claflin such an ideal school to replace them in the CIAA since we don't field a football team. Good riddance, I say. They were never a good fit anyway.

While I always applaud protesting for what’s right, I can’t help but wonder why these kids chose to attend Ole Miss in the first place. What exactly were they expecting?

Now that the CIAA tournament will be moving to Baltimore and Savannah State is moving back to the SIAC, do Claflin students and alums having any doubts about having moved to the CIAA?
None at all. Baltimore is still a more desirable place to visit than Birmingham. And besides, The CIAA does a far better job with their tournament. We already knew that because most of us have been going to the CIAA for years instead of supporting our own school in the SIAC. The SIAC tournament is dead. No one goes unless they're on the band or a cheerleader and some years even they didn't bother to go. It will always be CIAA>SIAC when it comes to basketball tournaments and that won't change when it moves to Baltimore. I can't promise we'll fill the arena, but there's never been anywhere near this level of excitement about going to anything
involving the SIAC. We will definitely be amongst the crowd in one form or another.

I have no idea what to expect from my orange and maroon. Both the men and women have some impressive wins and really bad losses. Hopefully one of them makes it to Thursday since that’s that earliest I can make it to town.

Love this man. He’s done so much not only for Claflin, but for me personally. If it weren’t for him, we’d probably still be an NAIA school. Very sad news. He was a great man and I can truly say that I learned a lot under his leadership!

I’m glad they fired him. He was a terrible GM to begin with but the fact that he didn’t think being petty with the Lakers would come back to bite him in the a** just reinforces it. Now AD probably hates his organization and he wants out even more than ever.

But there’s still the video and it definitely doesn’t sound fake.

Had to go look it up. So sad. Hate seeing fights like this, especially during Black History Month.
Oh wow I didn’t even think of that. Yeah, that’s not a good look.

This is unfortunate, and if it were my alma mater involved in this I would be livid....but IMO it didn’t look that bad. This season alone we’ve seen worse fights than this. I dunno. Maybe I’m just becoming desensitized to this kind of stuff.

Now that this has gone public, someone has to lose their job if her story has any truth to it.

Great pics, Que.
Great night for the orange and maroon. It’s always fun beating your rival on their home court. Hopefully we can keep this momentum going into the back half of our conference schedule.

Pepsi has been slaughtering Coca-Cola in SB advertising and overall brand presence for the last few years anyway. Now that it's happening on Coke's home turf, it makes them look very weak IMO.
It's always been a mystery to me why Coke has never had its name slapped on a major stadium in Atlanta. Seems like such a natural fit.

why not schedule some Alabama HBCU's
That wouldn’t be a good look for either side. ASU/AA&M would get clowned by the rest of the sports world for losing by 80 and Alabama looks like a bully for scheduling them in the first place.

Some of y’all tripping. Bama doesn’t need to go apeshit and play the hardest non conference schedule as that grind in the SEC West is a mother. Granted, those are four cake wins and I got no problems with it and for the record, I can’t stand Bama!other than LSU (sometimes) and Auburn (some years) the west is NOT a grind.
Honestly, Arkansas is the only team in the west that’s trash. The rest are very much legit competition compared to what most other schools have to face as their in conference schedule.
