    It appears the year off has really affected this conference

    VSU - It will be a Long Season
    Bowie - Play hard but lose
    VUU - Best team so far
    Lincoln - Surprise!
    FSU - Need to see some more
    ECSU - Not Bad
    Shaw - Forgotten
    St. Aug. - Best of the worst
    JCSU - Has the season started?
    Clafin - I forgot you were in the CIAA
    WSSU - Looks are deceiving beating SIAC teams
    Livingstone - Wake me up when the tourney starts

      I love my VSU but if you look at the article you referenced MAN DID THEY GET IT WRONG! It's a little over a 1/3 of the way through the season and I can tell you for sure those predictions are and will be very wrong.

      All CIAA Team

      Antwan Miles, Virginia State - He doesn't even start! He could be special if he played more.
      Francis Fitzgerald, Virginia State - Clearly the best player but he may only take 5-10 shots a game.

      I'm very frustrated watching this team. Clearly we are betting on the 7 foot guy to make our season good.

      I will say our women's team has had a bunch of injuries. If we get our full stable of players, I can see us reaching the CIAA finals. They should have won against Shepherd.

      I'm keeping an eye on Lincoln MBB and WBB teams.

            On another note, Bluefield State (WV) has applied for membership in the CIAA.

              Yikes... what a mess this is turning into. Could be interesting especially with Covid taking over.

                That could be intetesting. Coach Devin Hoehn is from the Jim Crutchfield coaching tree,. Opponents will experience the west liberty pressure on makes and misses. In their first year, they are forcing many turnovers.

                  Looks like a 1-bid league as of now. Odd to see Bowie and VSU struggling.

                    I would say VUU would be a lock to win the tourney but it's really between 3 teams.

                    1. VUU
                    2. Lincoln
                    3. Livingstone - They are scary. They have length, size and good coaching.


                    WSSU has an outside chance but not likely.

                      When Ship lost to you guys at the beginning of the season without Jake Biss I didn't figure that was a bad loss, given Virginia State's usual record. Things look different now. On the other hand, Ship's victory over Virginia Union the same weekend now looks like one of our best wins of the year.

                        The way we are playing we could be out in the first round or win the whole thing. With 6 OT games so far this season and bunch of games decided by 6 points or less, about the only thing I would bet on is that any game(s) we play in will be close.

                        I think it's also interesting how the CIAA changed up seeding this year. No more division seeding, just straight 12 teams seeded based on overall conference record. It's more fair when you have a stronger division, but sucks when you are WSSU and win your division but still end up with a lower seed then a team from your division.
