HBCU Basketball Community

Hey all! Curious junior here wondering about the social aspect of HBCU basketball. Do these colleges have basketball associations or clubs for non-athlete students to join? And what's the atmosphere like during games? Is it as hype as what I see on TV for other big colleges?

Absolutely! My son is at an HBCU and he's not on the varsity team, but he's part of a basketball club on campus — it's a great way for students to get involved without being on the athletic team. They organize games, discussions, and viewing parties for big matches. As for the game atmosphere, it's electric! The sense of community and school spirit at HBCU games can rival any large university. The bands, cheerleaders, and crowd chants really add to the lively vibe. It's such an immersive experience that my son always looks forward to game days. From what he's told me, it's every bit as exciting as what you might see on TV for the big games, just with a unique HBCU flavor.
