CIAA Men and Women Basketball Tournament 2012 Takes Over Charlotte, NC

Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Tournament kicked-off February 27, 2012, but the festivities along with some great women and men basketball will last until March 3, 2012. It all goes down in Charlotte, North Carolina. This year also represents the 100 year anniversary of the CIAA.

Shaw University Bears are clear-cut favorite to win it all. Shaw finished their season with a 24-2 record and was undefeated in the Conference. They are favored to win it all because of the Conference Player of the Year Malik Alvin. Alvin is averaging over 20 points and he is lights-out from behind the arc with 53 percent three-point shooting percentage. There are few teams that will make it difficult for Shaw to win the tournament, and they are Winston Salem State Rams and Bowie State University Bulldogs.

This not only is great basketball tournament, there will be many free festivities offered to the public. McDonald’s Super Saturday will have events such as a DJ competition. The events kick off at 8:30, and there will be many fun events to expect other than the great basketball games.

Sports fans should prepare themselves because parking could be a bear. If you are in the Charlotte area and like basketball and few performances, you will have a great time this weekend. The CIAA 2012 Tournament is the ticket.
