HBCU Movement Faces Tough Loss at Home Against #12 Ranked Alamo City Allstars
Houston, Texas — November 12th, 2023 — The HBCU Movement encountered a challenging defeat on home turf as they faced off against the formidable #12 ranked Alamo City Allstars. The game, held at San Jacinto College- North on November 12th, 2023, saw the Movement battling fiercely but ultimately falling short.
Despite the setback, there were notable performances, particularly from Corey Alpough, who returned from injury to lead the Movement with 14 points. Head Coach Kevin Williams expressed his thoughts on the game, acknowledging the team’s slow start and the absence of key players.
“It was a tough loss today; I think we came out flat as a team, and it showed being down 13-2 in the first quarter. We were missing Elton Dyer and Asante Belton today, and our starting center LeeAndre Howard fell and had a concussion. I believe that took the life out of the building. It’s no excuses; I have to coach better, and our team has to play better if we are going to win games in this league,” Coach Williams stated.
Looking ahead, the HBCU Movement shifts its focus to the upcoming matchup against the 0-3 Lonestar Crusaders on Sunday, November 19th, at 4:00 pm. The game will take place at the historic Fonde Recreation Center, and a victory is crucial for the Movement to stay competitive in the playoff race in the Gulf Coast Black Division.
