Black college basketball

After taking a year off because of the pandemic, the 2021 NCAA Tournament made a triumphant return and got off to a very Black start after both teams from HBCUs won their play-in games.

The Howard University men's basketball team has canceled the remainder of its season because of health concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

It could be argued that the matchup between the Texas Southern University Tigers and the North Carolina Central Eagles in a First Four matchup in Dayton, Ohio, is the unofficial Black college basketball championship.
