Chilling at the CIAA

There was  a small crowd in Time Warner Cable Arena Wednesday afternoon as the women's basketball tournament continued. I've always wondered why alumni of the CIAA schools don't support the women's basketball teams. Women's basketball is exciting because many of the women on the floor seem to play harder than the men because they seem to have something to prove. Shaw University's women's basketball team — in my humble opinion—could give any men's team a run for their money.

The older alumni is styling on you! The women looking around the vendor booths at the arena today are dressed to kill. Even though it's balmy 55 degrees today, one Livingstone alumnae I saw still wore her blue fur head wrap. That's style commitment.

Shaw advanced to the semi-finals with a victory over St. Augustine's.
And, most importantly,
The Johnson C. Smith University women's basketball team advances to the semifinals of the 2012 CIAA Tournament with a 75-70 victory over Winston-Salem State University. JCSU will play Chowan University on Friday, March 2nd at 3:00 p.m. in Time Warner Cable Arena.
