Texas Southern University will host the HBCU All-Star Game comprised of the top 24 players from HBCUs across the nation making up the two rosters for the contest. The game is set for Sunday, April 2 at 3 p.m. CST in the H&PE Arena and airs live on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream on Paramount+.
Some of the best basketball players in the four HBCU NCAA Division I and II conferences will take to the court. The player selections will be split into two teams of 12 for the historic annual game, which are named after a pair of HBCU legends – Team Willis Reed versus Team Dick Barnett.
TSU will be represented on Team Willis Reed (SWAC and CIAA HBCU All-Stars) by native Houstonians Joirdon Karl Nicholas, a power forward and center majoring in sports studies and leadership, and John Walker, III, a power forward and center majoring in health studies.
With a mission to advocate, educate, expose, mentor and invest in HBCU students, student athletes and coaches across the country, the event aims to showcase the “Best in Black College Basketball.”
