The College Football season for Week 7 was in full action yesterday as there was six games on the gridiron in the MEAC and the Mighty Wildcats of Bethune Cookman battled against North Carolina A&T, one of the undefeated teams in the MEAC, and held their own but fell 24 – 20 as quarterback Lamar Raynard threw not one, not two, but three TD’s to remain undefeated, Hampton led by QB Caylin Newton, who accounted for uno, dos, tres, quarto TD’s, two in the air and two on the ground as they steamrolled Morgan State 39- 14. Over in the sticks of North Cackalacka, Norfolk State got passed North Carolina Central 28 – 21 to hand them their first loss in the MEAC as quarterback Juwan Carter tossed the rock for 230 yards and a whopping 4 TD’s, Delaware State eked out a win over South Carolina State 17 – 14 with 218 passing yards and 2 touchdowns from Keenan Black, meanwhile, Florida A&M tried to muster a comeback against Hampton, but it wasn’t enough as they fell 31 – 27 despite 3 touchdown tosses from FAMU’s quarterback and finally, Savannah State suffered complete domination against Charleston Southern 52 – 27 as the team registered over 300 ground pounding rushing yards.

Over in the SWAC, they had a light schedule with only three games on tap as Grambling put an old fashion whooping on Alcorn State 41 – 14 as Devante Kincaid threw for 268 yards and 2 touchdowns, instead of being on the consistent end of getting a crushed, Mississippi Valley State did some crushing of their own as they squashed and mashed Lynchburg 53 – one Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, four Mississippi….five! Wow! 53 – 5 with 3 TD’s from wide receiver Booker Chambers and finally, Jackson State is begging and pleading for the season to over hova as they lost for the seventh consecutive game 35 - 17, this time against Southern with 163 bruising rushing yards from Hebert Edwards and a score.

I would be remiss if I didn’t give a sprinkle to the Houston Astros as they SHUT OUT the New York Yankees 4 – zip, 4 – zero, 4 - zil to advance to the World Series for the second time in the club’s history as Jose Altuve’s came up big in the 5th inning with a homerun and Jason Verlander was awarded ACLS MVP and first pitch of the World Series will be thrown on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

NBA Kick Off For The 2017 - 18 Season Feat. Scores, Highlights, An Encouraging Word & Some Old School! Vol. 2, 30th Edition

You are Alpha & Omega, we worship You our Lord, You are worthy to be praised! We give you all the glory, we worship You our Lord, You are worthy to be praised!

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening! Whichever time of day you find your ears listening to the sound that is flowing from your speakers! Welcome back to CeeJay’s Spiritual Sports Segment featuring the NBA Kick Off Edition on ceejaysports.com where I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in your Sports! I’m Cee Jay, C-E-E-J-A-Y! Your uncle, your next door neighbor looking out for ya and your shoulder, when you need to lean! Without further delay, Let’s Tip Off!!!



The 1st meeting between
LeBron & Kyrie
The 2017 – 18 NBA season tipped off last night to what should be an exciting season as only four teams were on the hard court as the new look Boston Celtics traveled to the defending Eastern Conference Champions in the Cleveland Cavaliers! The home crowd didn’t have any love lost for Kyrie Irvin who requested a trade and found himself in Celtic green going against his former team. With Boston holding an early 12 – 9 lead at the 6:49 mark, the prized free agent jewel for the Celtics in Gordon Hayward, went up for an ally oop, but came down awkwardly and suffered a horrific injury that resulted in a fractured tibia and dislocated ankle on his left leg that left his teammates and Cavs players alike in total shock. Prayers up Gordon! As you can imagine, it would not only be a line up adjustment for the Celtics, but also an emotional and mental one as they found themselves down 54 – 38 at halftime. But in the 3rd quarter, the Celtic Pride battled back and was only down by one at the conclusion of that frame and midway through the 4th, the Celtics garnished their first lead since the 1st, but eventually, the Cavs flexed their muscles and took the lead back late in the frame and maintained it for the win. LeBron James nearly had a triple-double with 29 points, 16 rebounds and 9 assists and Dwayne Wade logged 8 points in his debut with his third team as the Cavs win their home opener 102 – 99.

James Harden spoiled
the Warriors Championship night
The Warriors 2016 -17
Championship Ring
Jet setting over to the West Coast as the new look Houston Rockets had to witness the Golden State Warriors receive what they are chasing, their Championship Rings for the 2017 season. But it’s a new season, but early on, it was the same ole Warriors as they came out to play and were up early 22 – 9, but the Rockets blast back and were only down by 1 at the end of the 1st and by halftime, the Warriors would lead 72 – 61. Not much would change in the 3rd quarter as the Warriors would lead 101 – 88, but one major change did occur as Draymond Green, the reigning Defensive Player of Year, who nearly finished with a triple-double with 9 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds, would exit the game with a sprained left knee and would not return and that changed the complexion of the game. By the closing seconds of the final frame, the Rockets had tied the game 121 all and with a baseline swish from Kevin Durant as time expired, the Warriors thought they had staved off a lost. In the words of Lee Corso, not so fast my friend as the time showed he did not get the shot off and James Harden, who finished with a double-double with 27 points and 10 dimes, eventually sealed the deal with a trey as the Rockets spoil the Warriors ring ceremony with a slim 122 – 121 win as newly acquired Rocket Chris Paul, sat the bench during the final minutes with a sore knee finished with 4 points and 11 assists.

This sports segment is dedicated to my shipmate Randy Smith from our chance meeting en route to the Persian Gulf back in the day as I had lay down an old school New York hip hop beat with a little praise on top!

Week 7 standings in the MEAC have North Carolina A&T on top and undefeated followed by Central, Hampton, Howard, Bethune Cookman and Norfolk State.

In the SWAC East, Alcorn State is on the top of the mountain followed by Alabama A&M and Mississippi Valley State and in the West, Grambling is undefeated with Prairie close behind.

Words cannot truly express the magnitude of my first official event as a member of the media for the 93rd running of the Annual State Fair Classic sponsored by Southwest Airlines but I digress for the moment and will come back to that!


The game between the Panthers of Prairie View A&M University and the Tigers of Grambling State University played out on the gridiron yesterday at the historic Cotton Bowl nested inside the Texas State Fair! Both teams entered the game 2 – 0 in the SWAC Conference West Division and each was on a winning streak of their own. However comma Grambling was plagued by penalties entering the game and the plague continued as the Tigers amassed 17 penalties for 132 yards compared to the Panthers 11 penalties for only 68 yards and THAT kin folks comes down to discipline. Both teams had similar stats, but it was the running game from Grambling that really set the tone as they rushed the rock for 154 yards compared to PV’s only 12 yards….ouch! The bulk of the rushing yards came from Martez Carter as he steamrolled the Panthers defense for 124 yards and a TD, but the Panthers would go away without a fight. Speaking of defense, Grambling’s defense snatched the ball from Prairie View’s offense by causing three turnovers and garnered three sacks on the Panthers quarterback and Grambling’s quarterback, Devante Kincaide was on F.I.Y.A on fiya! He was efficient with a 200.7 passing rating and 265 yards and not one, not two, but three TD’s as Grambling won their fourth straight Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic as they manhandled Prairie View 34 – 21. Grambling State now moves to 3 – 0 in the conference and 5 – 1 overall as they sit atop the West division.  

Now back to my first official event as a member of the media and it was such a blast to interact with staff, media members and most importantly, the fans, especially Nicole and Secret….shhhhh, keep that on the low, low! Let me get out here!

This sports segment is dedicated to My Bride who provided support beyond measure to help my vision come to reality, to Ms. Elle for your genuine guidance in this endeavor, to Ms. Robin for coming through in the 11th hour to affix the logo onto my shirt.

This is a bonus, special edition of CeeJay Sports as there was only one game on tap last night as the MEAC showcased the Eagles of North Carolina Central pitted against the Rattlers of Florida A&M on the highest of seven hills in Tallahassee, FL at Bragg Memorial Stadium as both teams entered the contest undefeated in the MEAC, but of course, wouldn’t leave the same way!


North Carolina Central was looking to keep their conference winning streak alive as they have not lost a conference game since 2015 and they came out the gates full steam ahead and took a commanding 14 – 0 lead after the 1st quarter as one of the touchdowns came off a of pick six of FAMU’s quarterback Ryan Stanley. But the Rattlers regained composure and knotted the game 14 apiece prior to halftime in part to a 1 yard TD run by Devin Bowers. Both teams couldn’t muster much offense in the 3rd quarter and would enter the 4th the same way they entered the 3rd. But with 2:02 left in the game, red shirt freshman Isiah Totten scored on the eventual game sealer as Central remains undefeated in the MEAC by outlasting FAMU 21 – 14.

This sports segment is dedicated to our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico as they are in dire need of everything after Hurricane Maria ravished the land and my prayer is that God shift things in their favor and provide them with everything they stand in need of.
