Charlotte NC: In less than one week Charlotte will play host to Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association(CIAA) Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament for the ninth straight year. There has been wide spread talk around the region about tournament possibly leaving, heading south to Atlanta. The CIAA is the second largest grossing basketball tournament behind the NCAA Tournament. The Conference features teams from as far North as Philadelphia Pa( Lincoln University) and Charlotte's own Johnson C. Smith University(Golden Bulls). This comes after Charlotte Hosted the Democratic National Convention about 18 months without any problems. Charlotte has really given the CIAA a different look the past nine year. In the previous cities that have hosted CIAA Tournaments, Charlotte may have been the best host.
