Hampton - 85, Bluefield College - 68

15 posts in this topic

Every couple years or so, Bluefield finds itself accepting money from Division 1 schools for games in which it is expected to be a sacrificial lamb for major college teams.  That being said, for being NAIA, Bluefield gave a darned good account of itself against a MEAC school.

My brother played basketball at Bluefield from '98-'02.  If memory serves, they beat Radford University two years in a row.  I'm just not certain if those games were early season games, exhibition games or a combination.

I've been texting back and forth with my brother about this.  I can't stand to feel like I provided faulty information so, I want to get it right and my memory isn't what it used to be.

The first was his freshman season and was a preseason/exhibition game at Radford.  Radford turned around and lost a week later to Concord.  The second wasn't Radford.  Bluefield beat Elon a couple of years after my brother graduated.

I was told Bluefield was up at the half 35-33. Good showing for the rams

You’d be correct on both accounts.  Though the gap is not nearly as wide in basketball as it is in football, it’s still sizable.

That’s the one where Omar Reed went bonkers.  He had a cup of coffee in the D-League, too.  That team wasn’t a bunch of stiffs...

He's still playing professionally in the Dominican.

It was nice when King beat App State a few years ago while King was still NAIA I believe in a regular season game.  Probably been 8-10 years ago as well.

You're just an App State hater.  Lol

I don't remember the years in which they occurred, but when I was in school there, UVa-Wise then known as Clinch Valley College defeated Jacksonville and took Austin Peay to OT in football. (both I-AA schools)  CVC was still NAIA then.

Fairly accurate when it comes to App State.  I remember as well 2008 UVA-Wise almost upset them before falling 82-77.  2010 was the King victory over the Mountaineers 87-76.  Each game had a fair share of Scott County kids participating was a the big reason of interest.

I'm still confused as to why he hates Appy. 

Old Southern Conference rivals across the mountain from one another I am guessing.

But they haven't been in the SoCon together for years.  I guess bad blood never dies.  I don't think they even play each other in anything now do they?
