Johnson C. Smith didn't look great in their effort to three-peat as CIAA champions against upstart Chowan University. But inside the arena, the bad ball by JCSU in the first half wasn't the only god-awful things seen at the Cable Box.
Here's a new CIAA rule that you should keep in mind when you're attending the games: Five inch heels are not your friend walking around the hard floors of the arena. Countless women slow-walked though the crowd trying to get to the concessions at half time with JCSU losing to Chowan 25 to 33.
In the second half, Chowan proved that being the new kid didn't mean they were going to lose in their first CIAA tournament appearance. The two-time defending champions came out in the second half playing as if they'd been walking around all day in five-inch heels. With 2:53 left in the game, Chowan was up 63 to 44, making it painfully obvious that the Golden Bulls wouldn't be repeating as champions.
Final score: Chowan: 74 JCSU: 46
