DEVELOPING: Southern U. Setting Record As We Speak (UPDATED W/Final Stats)

((HT: Dark Panda))

Southern University's men's hoops squad thought it would be a good idea to schedule Champion Baptist College for a home game this evening...

This was a bad idea for CBC...

Rivals and Yahoo!Sports Jeff Eisenberg, who has been monitoring the game, sees that CBC is 0-16 from the floor and has 10 turnovers, no offensive rebounds, and was down 41-0 with 7:34 to go in the first half.

This would be an NCAA record for futility...

And, somewhere in this run, Southern even called a timeout...

Here's Champion Baptist's mid-night madness video from this season... where, presumably, they scored more points...


Champion Baptist finally scored, but Southern led 44-0 at the time for the biggest recorded run to start a game...

Congrats to you...

2145 UPDATE: The final was 116-12, so at least Southern didn't get the record for winning margin...

Some preliminary notes...

Southern scored 57 in the first half and 59 in the second, Champion Baptist scored 6 in each...
Here's your proof, thanks to hbcugameday.com

CBC went 3-for-44 from the floor and went only 5-for-17 from the foul line...
Their leading scorer was point guard Zach Hendricks- who had 4 points...
They were outrebounded 71-21
Southern had 23 assists, CBC had 1
Southern had 20 steals, CBC had 3
CBC had 27 turnovers, Southern had 8

Bottom line: Much like in college football, this game should never have been scheduled...

Bomani Jones even tweeted that CBC is in Hot Springs, Arkansas (his home town) and he never even heard of the school...

Here’s how obscure Champion Baptist College is: It’s in the town where I grew up (Hot Springs) and I’ve never heard of it.

The Sporting News' Kami Mattioli has some details on CBC:

A private, Baptist school with a total full-time undergraduate enrollment of 250 students, the Tigers are an independent school that competes in the Association of Christian College Athletics.

As members of the ACCA, they've won three National Championships in 2007, 2009 and 2010.

In the four games they've played, Champion Baptist averaged 38.0 points per game, while allowing their opponents to score an average of 108.3 points per game.


Southern, by the way, improved to 4-9
