HVL has more followers than Paige. :eek: Did not expect that. and Azzi not in top group :confused:
Just checked, Azzi has 141k which is also a massive number. Basketball is a totally different game from getting social media followers.


Ex:
Diana Taurasi: 76k
Tamika Catchings: 72k
Tina Charles: 43k
Moriah Jefferson: 43k
Megan Walker: 30.7k
Christyn Williams: 28.6k

That's quite a difference between some of them. I would assume some players cultivate their social media platforms much more than others? I would think Gray is a popular player and probably the highest profile of any on this list, but doesn't have a massive following on twitter. The fact that several just graduated HS players have way more followers also seems to indicate age plays a big role in this as well.

I thought with Christyn's TikTok video which had 500K views I think, she would have gotten her numbers much higher

Don't know how I missed this but FAMU is leaving the MEAC to join the SWAC starting in July 2021. :eek:

SWAC approves FAMU for full membership

Bethune Cookman held an emergency meeting yesterday to discuss its future. It would make sense for them to bolt for the SWAC as that would put the SWAC at 12 schools.

What the heck is happening to the MEAC? Schools are fleeing it.

In other conference defection news, NEC stalwart Robert Morris is joining the Horizon League in 10 of its 15 sports (including WBB) starting this coming season. Its football team will play as an independent in 2020 and in the Big South starting in 2021 (becoming the second non-southern football school in the Big South, along with Monmouth).

I coach with one of the McNair brothers. Yes, those McNair brothers. Tim is our HS football coach and AD and his son plays for Alcorn, his brother Fred is the head coach at Alcorn. Glad to see FAMU in the SWAC and the potential for some GREAT halftimes with Jackson State.

By all measures, the HBCU's in general have fallen on hard times academically. Graduation rates are terrible, the degrees are becoming all-but-worthless - it's an under-reported scandal. Just a few weeks ago the NCAA announced sanctions for those teams that failed to meet the (frankly, weak) requirements for student progress. Two-thirds of the sanctioned schools were HBCUs.

Apparently some schools are trying to break the cycle of low expectations by moving into mainstream conferences. There's probably no better way than switching conferences to signal to students and faculty that the emphasis will now be on the "college" and not the "historically black" part of the HBCU designation. And it sends a message to coaches and staff that the "HB" part can't be used as an excuse for poor classroom performance or behavior. Hopefully it works for these schools and their students.

She’s tatted up, will she be required to cover up when she’s on the court for the Lady Vols?
I know that was a rule Pat had. I'm not sure if it's required now. She looks quick and athletic.

Think Kellie has covered over same rule as Pat & Holly since Zaay was coverup in few games she played last year.
