expand/collapseExpand/collapse Historical Information

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) is a college athletic conference founded in 1912 as the Colored Intercollegiate Athletic Association. It is the oldest African American athletic conference in the nation. Although membership has changed since 1912, the CIAA membership is comprised of both private and public Historically Black Colleges and Universities spanning the eastern coast of the United States. Conference teams participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association's (NCAA) Division II.

The North Carolina College For Negroes (later North Carolina College at Durham, and then North Carolina Central University) joined the CIAA in 1928. In 1970, the University left the CIAA to join the newly founded Mid Atlantic East Conference (MEAC). The University was with MEAC until 1980, when it returned to the CIAA. Since the University first became a member of the CIAA, its teams have won 41 conference championships, made 21 NCAA regional appearances, won three NCAA regional titles, and earned two team national championships (the 1989 NCAA Division II Men's Basketball and the 1972 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Men's Outdoor Track and Field (NAIA)). More than 55 student athletes have captured individual NCAA and NAIA national championships.

ESPN breaks new ground with executive produced Chris Paul, Stephen A. Smith HBCU documentary


As a middle school basketball coach making $225 a month, LeVelle Moton could at least hold practice on the six hoops available in the gymnasium. He had 10 baskets at his disposal when he made the jump to high school.

For the past 11 seasons, Moton has been the men’s basketball head coach at his alma mater, North Carolina Central University, where he is one of the most decorated players in program history and has led the Eagles to three consecutive NCAA Tournament berths.

North Carolina Central has two basketball hoops to practice on.

It’s one example of the inequalities that exist within college athletics and the dearth of resources – not to mention the lack of recognition – Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) face.

“We do feel unsung,” Moton told USA TODAY Sports by phone last week. “We feel like we’ve accomplished far more, if not greater, than any other program in the country with far less resources.”

Moton and his team are the subjects of a new documentary that will debut on ESPN+ in two weeks as part of the network’s launch of “The Undefeated” on its subscription platform. “Why Not Us: North Carolina Central University Men’s Basketball” debuts on Feb. 12, with Chris Paul and Stephen A. Smith (a HBCU graduate himself) attached to the project as executive producers of the eight-part series. The new partnership between ESPN+ and The Undefeated will create a day-to-day home on the streaming platform for stories at the intersection of sports, race and culture, while doubling as a content creation engine for Black stories under the Disney umbrella.

The Undefeated editor-in-chief and ESPN senior vice president Kevin Merida told USA TODAY Sports the venture is part of the site’s “experimental ethos.”

“We’ve done a lot about Black athletes and what they do off the court and how they think and what they care about,” he said. “We’ve showed that sports is culture and there are relationships between sports and culture. We’ve given people a lot of windows into what they may not be getting elsewhere. We’re not the only people interested in that. Audiences everywhere are interested in those stories. So I think it starts with we try to do things that are not obvious and things that are differentiating.

“It’s really exciting for us because it gives us another distribution outlet for our work.”

Highlighting the Eagles is the first documentary project, but the “Why Not Us” series could become a running title with a focus on different programs. Merida said working with NC Central was “a perfect marriage” and made possible by the site’s long track record of covering HBCUs.

“I was just happy that ESPN (took) the time to come shine a positive light on that, and keeping it authentic and true to who we are and what we actually do and how we go about our business,” Moton said.

“The reality is, the stories that are being told, aren’t (told by) people that look like us,” the coach added. “There’s not a lot of people who have the pen, or the power, or the net worth in control of the media outlets that look like us so they’re not obligated to tell our stories. So when you have a story such as this, that’s why I think it’s so pure and genuine because we’ve been just as successful, if not more.”

Moton is quick to point out the dismal NFL hiring cycle for Black coaches this offseason, saying that even successful Black coaches across the sports landscape, from the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin to the late Georgetown Hoyas men's coach John Thompson, don’t receive their due. He invokes a past NC Central coach, John McLendon, whose teachings from the 1940s of the fast-break and four corners offense are the building blocks for the modern game.

History hardly remembers McLendon’s impact, Moton lamented.

“They always want to tag us as motivators or recruiters,” he said. “That has to stop. Yeah, we can motivate, but we can X and O with the best of them as well.”

Moton realizes it’s on him to prepare his players for that harsh reality, which extends beyond the basketball court.

“Because I really want these young men to go out and be successful citizens in this world,” said Moton, who led the program’s transition from Division II to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. “I want to prepare these young men to be not only good basketball players, but good students, good men, good husbands, good fathers, good head-of-households.”

On Friday, the Eagles played for the first time in 50 days, a 94-61 victory over Carver. They had practiced for seven days as a complete team before that and missed 49 days due to COVID-19 issues. The differences in resources between a Power 5 conference program and those at an HBCU will be apparent in the documentary, although the standards of success aren’t lessened.

“We probably have to deal with some more issues that everyone else doesn’t necessarily have to deal with because they can delegate it,” Moton said. “They have staff and they have people that’s hired for those particular roles. You’ll see that we’re just as much of the academic coordinators as everybody else.”

Most of all, Moton hopes viewers will identify with his and the school’s authenticity. He remembers the coaches who rescued him from a dysfunctional background – “I was broken,” he says now – and raised him. He’s paying it forward to the young men passing through his program decades later.

“We teach how we were taught. We coach how we were coached,” Moton said. “We always draw back and pull from our life experiences to coach and teach the next generation, and that’s what I’ve done in some unique and creative forms.”

As for the rest of The Undefeated’s crossover to the streaming wars, other big projects are on the horizon. Another television special, in concert with National Geographic, will air on Feb. 18 (The March on Washington: Keepers of the Dream). The site is also planning its second album release.  

“Even though February starts Black History Month, for us Black history always is about not just looking in the past, but the history we’re creating now – beyond a month,” Merida said. “That’s part of the branding. We’re living history. It’s Nia Dennis. It’s Amanda Gorman. It’s people in spaces helping to advance America in real time. So part of it for us as it relates to having this opportunity is it’s really an extension of what we’re doing.”

north carolina central university athletics NC Central To Drop Baseball After 2021 Season Due To Costs, COVID-19

After this spring, baseball will no longer be played at North Carolina Central University.

The historically Black university in Durham announced Thursday that it was discontinuing the sport after its 2021 season.

In a statement, NC Central said that its current funding model for athletics "is not sustainable" and the decision to end its sponsorship of baseball is "an effort to improve" its fiscal stability.

The budgetary impact of COVID-19 was also a factor, the university said. NC Central's athletics department had cut its overall operational costs by 30% since March 2020, including implementing department-wide furloughs.

"This is a challenging day for our baseball student-athletes, coaches and the NCCU Athletics program, and certainly one of the most disappointing days in my career," NC Central Athletic Director Dr. Ingrid Wicker McCree said in a statement. "There is never the 'right time' to make an announcement such as this. However, this decision was made after a rigorous internal and external review of our long-term financial model to improve the overall sustainability of our athletics program."

Without baseball, NC Central will still sponsor 14 varsity sports, the minimum required for Division I NCAA membership and sponsorship from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

In deciding which sport it would cut to save costs, a task force was established in the fall of 2020 to review a 2015 NC Central sports portfolio report. The task force assessed the report and determined the sustainability of each program. The task force considered squad size, number of competitions, cost of facility rental and game officials and overall operational expenses in determining which men's sport to discontinue. NC Central couldn't discontinue a women’s sport because they're already at the NCAA's minimum required number of sports offered for women, seven.

The university will honor all existing and new scholarships for baseball student-athletes who wish to continue studying at NC Central for the 2021-22 academic year. If an athlete decides to transfer, they will be immediately eligible for competition elsewhere.

This is not the first time baseball has come and gone at NC Central. The sport was dropped by the school in 1975, then brought back after a 32-year hiatus in 2007. Since then, the Eagles have played their games at the Durham Athletic Park. Since 2015, the program has produced six players that went on to sign with clubs in Major League Baseball, including two-time MEAC Player of the Year Corey Joyce.

NC Central's 2020 season was cut short due to the pandemic. The Eagles posted a 21-28 record in 2019 under head coach Jim Koerner. Their 2021 season is set to begin on Feb. 19 at home against Army.

NCCU to discontinue baseball program at the end of spring season, citing pandemic

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- North Carolina Central University announced Thursday that it will be cutting its baseball program at the end of the 2021 season citing the 'budgetary impact' brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the start of the pandemic, the university's Department of Athletics cut operational costs by 30%, reducing staff positions and issuing furloughs. However, the university deemed those measures did not "support long-term fiscal stability and competitive success."

"Due to an increase in athletics expenditures during the past four years and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on revenue opportunities, it was determined that the current funding north carolina central university athletics for athletics is not sustainable," a university spokesperson wrote. "This decision to discontinue one sport is an effort to improve the overall fiscal stability of the department's annual budget, as well as maximize the available financial resources to enhance the championship experience for the student-athletes in the remaining 14 sports programs."

NC Central announces it will no longer field a baseball team following this season. They will honor north carolina central university athletics scholarships.

— Mark Armstrong (@ArmstrongABC11) February 11, 2021


"This is a challenging day for our baseball student-athletes, coaches and the NCCU Athletics program, and certainly one of the most disappointing days in my career," said NCCU Director of Athletics Dr. Ingrid Wicker McCree. "I sincerely understand how much time and dedication has been put into becoming a college student-athlete and I empathize with our baseball student-athletes, parents, and families. There is never the 'right time' to make an announcement such as this; however, this decision was made after a rigorous internal and external review of our long-term financial model to improve the overall sustainability of our athletics program. We appreciate the loyalty our baseball donors, fans and supporters have shown throughout the history of the program."

The university said it will continue to honor all existing and new scholarships for baseball student-athletes for the 2021-22 academic year.

"We will focus on supporting our baseball student-athletes and coaches impacted by today's news," McCree said. "Head coach Jim Koerner and his staff have contributed greatly to the success of our baseball student-athletes and have made a positive impact on our community. The legacy of NCCU baseball, the program success under the leadership of Coach Koerner, and our current and former baseball student-athletes and coaches will be remembered and celebrated."

ESPN breaks new ground with executive produced Chris Paul, Stephen A. Smith HBCU documentary


As a middle school basketball coach making $225 a month, LeVelle Moton could at least hold practice on the six hoops available in the gymnasium. He had 10 baskets at his disposal when he made the jump to high school.

For the past 11 seasons, Moton has been the men’s basketball head coach at his alma mater, North Carolina Central University, where he is one of the most decorated players in program history and has led the Eagles to three consecutive NCAA Tournament berths.

North Carolina Central has two basketball hoops to practice on.

It’s one example of the inequalities that exist within college athletics and the dearth of resources – not to mention the lack of recognition – Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) face.

“We do feel unsung,” Moton told USA TODAY Sports by phone last week. “We feel like we’ve accomplished far more, if not greater, than any other program in the country with far less resources.”

Moton and his north carolina central university athletics are the subjects of a new documentary that will debut on ESPN+ in two weeks as part of the network’s launch of “The Undefeated” on its subscription platform. “Why Not Us: North Carolina Central University Men’s Basketball” debuts on Feb. 12, with Chris Paul and Stephen A. Smith (a HBCU graduate himself) attached to the project as executive producers of the eight-part series. The new partnership between ESPN+ and The Undefeated will create a day-to-day home on the streaming platform for stories at the intersection of sports, race and culture, while doubling as a content creation engine for Black stories under the Disney umbrella.

The Undefeated editor-in-chief and ESPN senior vice president Kevin Merida told USA TODAY Sports the venture is part of the site’s “experimental ethos.”

“We’ve done a lot about Black athletes and what they do off the court and how they think and what they care about,” he said. “We’ve showed that sports is culture and there are relationships between sports and culture. We’ve given people a lot of windows into what they may not be getting elsewhere. We’re not the only people interested in that. Audiences everywhere are interested in those stories. So I think it starts with we try to do things that are not obvious and things that are differentiating.

“It’s really exciting for us because it gives us another distribution outlet for our work.”

Highlighting the Eagles is the first documentary project, but the “Why Not Us” series could become a running title with a focus on different programs. Merida said working with NC Central capital one venture minimum credit score “a perfect marriage” and made possible by the site’s long track record of covering HBCUs.

“I was just happy that ESPN (took) the time to come shine a positive light on that, and keeping it authentic and true to who we are and what we actually do and how we go about our business,” Moton said.

“The reality is, the stories that are being told, aren’t (told by) people that look like us,” the coach added. “There’s not a lot of people who have the pen, or the power, or the net worth in control of the media outlets that look like us so they’re not obligated to tell our stories. So when you have a story such as this, that’s why I think it’s so pure and genuine because we’ve been just as successful, if not more.”

Moton is quick to point out the dismal NFL hiring cycle for Black coaches this offseason, saying that even successful Black coaches across the sports landscape, from the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin to the late Georgetown Hoyas men's coach John Thompson, don’t receive their due. He invokes a past NC Central coach, John McLendon, whose teachings from the 1940s of the fast-break and four corners offense are the north carolina central university athletics blocks for the modern game.

History hardly remembers McLendon’s impact, Moton lamented.

“They always want to tag us as motivators or recruiters,” he said. “That has to stop. Yeah, we can motivate, but we can X and O with the best of them as well.”

Moton realizes it’s on him to prepare his players for that harsh reality, which extends beyond the basketball court.

“Because I really want these young men to go out and be successful citizens in this world,” said Moton, who led the program’s transition from Division II to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. “I want to prepare these young men to be not only good basketball players, but good students, good men, good husbands, good fathers, good head-of-households.”

On Friday, the Eagles played for the first time in 50 days, a 94-61 victory over Carver. They had practiced for seven days as a complete team before that and missed 49 days due to COVID-19 issues. The differences in resources between a Power 5 conference program and those at an HBCU will be apparent in the documentary, although the standards of success aren’t lessened.

“We probably have to deal with some more issues that everyone else doesn’t necessarily have to deal with because they can delegate it,” Moton said. “They have staff and they have people that’s hired for those particular roles. You’ll see that we’re just as much of the academic coordinators as everybody else.”

Most of all, Moton hopes viewers will identify with his and the school’s authenticity. He remembers the coaches who rescued him from a dysfunctional background – “I was broken,” he says now – and raised him. He’s paying it forward to the young men passing through his program decades later.

“We teach how we were taught. We coach how we were coached,” Moton said. “We always draw back and pull from our life experiences to coach and teach the next generation, and that’s what I’ve done in some unique north carolina central university athletics creative forms.”

As for the rest of The Undefeated’s crossover to the streaming wars, other big projects are on the horizon. Another television special, in concert with National Geographic, will air on Feb. 18 (The March on Washington: Keepers of the Dream). The site is also planning its second album release.  

“Even though February starts Black History Month, for us Black history always is about not just looking in the past, but the history we’re creating now – beyond a month,” Merida said. “That’s part of the branding. We’re living history. It’s Nia Dennis. It’s Amanda Gorman. It’s people in spaces helping to advance America in real time. So part of it for us as it relates to having this opportunity is it’s really an extension of what we’re doing.”
