This is Cee Jay, C-E-E-J-A-Y! and this is your Spiritual Sports Segment with a hip hop twist as I  as I kick off a brand new season in the NBA on as I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in YOUR Sports!!! Le’ Go!!!

The 2019 NBA season kicked off last night with two featured games on the hardcourt and a handful of gold, diamonds and rubies OH MY! As We The North aka Toronto Raptors received their 2018-19 championship rings and they were the largest NBA championship rings every produced ! Dare I say bling, bling, bling! 

But I digress, as the Raptors opened the season against the Zion-less New Orleans Pelicans and their deep bench as the Pelicans were running laps around the Raptors and by the half, the Pelicans lead 61 – 56. But in the 2nd half, the Raptors regrouped and dominated the 3rd and at the end of regulation, tied the game to send it to OT and from there, the Raptors exhibited championship pedigree and outscored the Pelicans 13 – 5 to notch the first win of the NBA season as Fred Van Fleet scored a career high of 34 net scorching points and the newly minted $130 million dollar man in Pascal Siakim, dominated with  a double-double of 34 points and 18 Big Boy Rebounds as the Raptors sealed the deal 130 – 122.

The second game of the night takes us to California as my LA Lakers took on the new look LA Clippers for the Battle of LA! The Lakers came out in the 1st with a purpose and edged out the Clips, but the in the 2nd, the Clippers and their version of the Terminator aka Khawi Leonard, bamboozled the Lakers by outpacing them by 11 to take a 62 – 54 lead into the half. The Lakers regrouped on account of the hot hand of Danny Green and his team high of 25 points in the 3rd, but the Clips clamped down on D and won the first Battle of LA 112 – 102 as Leonard filled the basket with a team high of 30 points and the Clippers bench was nothing shy of stellar and walloped the Lakers bench 60 – 19! Ouch.

For your NBA News & Notes, as the fallout from Daryl Morey’s tweet continues and tensions between the NBA and China still exists, Chinese state television did not air the NBA's opening night games Tuesday as they usually do, and the league's streaming partner, Tencent, reduced its schedule and showed just the Lakers-Clippers contest and finally, California prosecutors announced Tuesday that they won't charge Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri for shoving a sheriff's deputy after the deciding game of the NBA Finals in Oakland in June.

HBCU College Football Wrap Up Show Feat. Scores, Stats & Standings & An Encouraging Word! Vol. III, 1st Edition

You called out my name, knew my past, covered my shame! This amazing grace you've shown, so patiently. And You, waited, waited, waited….just for me.

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! This is CeeJay, C-E-E-J-A-Y! Welcome back to CeeJay’s Spiritual Sports Segment HBCU Edition for the 2019 Football Season with a Hip Hop Twist as I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in your Sports! Without further delay, Let’s Chop It Up!!

The MEAC had it going on with technically three games on tap as the fourth game between Florida A&M and North Carolina A&T was postponed due to Nasty Nestor of a Tropical Storm as the game was to pushed to Sunday, but I digress as South Carolina State didn’t play nice with Morgan State and handed them their sixth loss 24 – 10 as QB Corey Fields threw for two TD’s and his running back Labron Morris touted the rock for 125 ground pounding yards and a score. Delaware State matched up against out of conference foe Merrimack and basically got smacked 30 - 21 as Christian Carter notched 194 passing yards and a score and 64 rushing yards and another score and finally, Bethune Cookman tussled with Norfolk State as the Wildcats broke loose from the Spartans in the 2nd half to claim victory 35 – 22 as Akevious Williams racked up 274 passing yard and two TD’s and he also added a rush TD.

Moving on to the SWAC, Jackson State needed overtime to take care of business 31 – 28 against Mississippi Valley State as Derrick Ponder lead the charge with 194 passing yards with two TD’s and Kymani Clark steamrolled the Delta Devils with 171 earth shaking rushing yards and a score. Texas Southern had a no quit spirit with 14 points scored in the 4th quarter, but it was not enough as they dropped their 7th game to remain win less on the season against Southern 28 – 21 as Glendon McDaniel threw not one, not two but three TD’s with 252 passing yards and finally, it was homecoming for the Panthers of Prairie View as they were literally spanked and SHUT OUT Virginia Lynchburg 51 – 0, 51 – Nothing, 51 – Zilch, 51…you get what I’m trying to say as PV rushed for a whopping 294 yards and QB Tyriek Starks accounted for two TD’s.

Here’s a run-down of the top teams in the MEAC conference as Bethune Cookman sits atop of the conference at 4 – 0, FAMU is 2nd at 3 – 0, North Carolina A&T is 3rd at 2 – 0 and coming in 4th is South Carolina State at 2 – 1.

Your conference standings in the SWAC has Alcorn State holding down the number one spot in the East at 3 – 0 and Alabama State at #2 with 2 wins and 1 loss and in the West, Southern is sitting on top at 3 – 0 and coming in 2nd is Arkansas Pine Bluff at 2 – 1.
