HAMPTON, Va. At the end of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association annual fall meeting of coaches, administrators and studentathletes in Charlotte, N.C. earlier this month, the 2013-14 Basketball Media Day was held with preseason all-conference players and the predicted order of finish selected. Defending men's champion Bowie State and Winston-Salem State were predicted as the men's basketball North and South division winners, respectively, and Elizabeth City State and defending women's champion Shaw were predicted to win their divisions' women's championship. The 2013 Preseason All-CIAA Team also was announced. WinstonSalem State led the pack with two All-CIAA players on the men's and women's teams. CIAA Commissioner Jacqie Carpenter discussed the fact the conference was now operating in the black and that $1.5 million in scholarships had been paid during the prior year. She also announced updates regarding the bid process to host future CIAA Basketball Championships. The 2014 CIAA Basketball Tournament, February 24 March 1, is the final year of the current contract. CIAA will issue a Request for Bids from cities throughout the region to host future tournaments, and a decision is currently expected around the first of the year. "On behalf of our staff, membership and student-athletes, we thank the city of Charlotte for being a gracious host since 2006," said Carpenter. "We look forward to another incredible season of basketball that will culminate in a tournament that showcases the CIAA's legacy of competition, sportsmanship and achievement on and off the court." The CIAA Basketball Season officially tips-off in November, with Winston-Salem State's mens team taking on Duke Nov. 1 and the Winston-Salem State women's team taking on North Carolina State on Nov. 3.
