ATLANTA, Ga. – On Sunday evening the Clark Atlanta University men’s basketball program was made aware of the time and place for the upcoming NCAA South Region Championship.
The NCAA has determined the host to be University of Alabama in Huntsville. UAH plays out of the Gulf South Conference and entered the GSC tournament receiving votes nationally while being No. 2 in the South Region.
CAU was selected as the No. 8 seed and will play the host UAH (24-7). The Panthers are 21-11 (12-5 SIAC) under Darrell Walker in his first season as the head coach at CAU. Walker was named SIAC Coach of the Tournament after Clark Atlanta defeated Fort Valley State on Saturday night in Birmingham, Ala.
The Panthers were left off the SIAC postseason awards lists which shocked many. When all was said-and-done last week in Birmingham, all the award recipients were sent home and Tim Sanders was selected as the Tournament Most Valuable Player.
The winner of the South Region will be one of eight teams that will make a bid for the National Championship to be played from Sioux Falls, S.D. on the week of Mar. 22-25.
