Thousands of HBCU alumni traveled to Baltimore to watch their schools’ men’s and women’s basketball teams compete for a conference championship.
Lincoln’s women’s basketball team was victorious against Elizabeth City with a 67-52 defeat and won the championship. Lincoln’s Bryanna Brown earned the MVP award with 28 points, six rebounds and two steals.
On the men’s end, Fayetteville State defeated Virginia Union 65-62 and took home the championship trophy. Cress Worthy was named MVP of the game with 13 points and six assists.
The CIAA tournament consists of more than just basketball. HBCU alumni came to town for the vendors, parties, step shows, band performances and more.
