WHAT'S GOING ON IN AND AROUND BLACK COLLEGE SPORTS

Hoops Rundown
The CIAA and SIAC end regular season play on Feb. 23 and head into tournament play the following week. Here's how those races look.

midst of a 4-17 season, winless at 0-8 in the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference, South Carolina State head men's basketball coach Tim Carter resigned the university announced last Wednesday. Associate head coach Murray Garvin will assume the head coaching GARVIN: Takes duties until further notice, according over at SC State to Bulldog athletics director Charlene mid-season. Johnson. "We thank Coach Carter for his service as head men's basketball coach at SC State and wish him well in his future endeavors," said Johnson. Carter was in his fifth season as Bulldog head coach. The Kansas graduate and former head coach at Texas-San Antonio had his best season during his third campaign when SC State was 18-14 and reached the MEAC Tournament championship game. lem State Lady Rams volleyball program welcomes its new leader with the hiring of head coach Andi Henderson. She will make her head coaching debut at Winston-Salem State after assistant coaching stints at her alma mater, Catawba College and nearby Greensboro College. She will take the reins of the Lady Rams HENDERSON program immediately. Henderson joins the Winston-Salem State staff after spending three seasons at Catawba College. Prior to joining the Catawba staff, she served as an assistant coach at nearby Greensboro College. As a player, Henderson was a three-year all-conference performer at Catawba College, graduating in 2008 with a degree in sports management. During her career, she set school records for assists in a match (83), per set average (12.94), and in a career (4,119). She also ranked second for assists in a season with 1,605. Henderson is no stranger to Lady Rams volleyball as she earned a spot on the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) All-Rookie team as a freshman with the Lady Rams. She will take over a Lady Rams program that posted an 11-24 overall record last season, but finished third in the CIAA Southern Division, just one game out of second place in the division for a second straight season. The Lady Rams reached the semifinal round of the 2012 CIAA Volleyball Championship Tournament.
