The 2014 National Championship has Concluded!
After 19 rounds of play, the Bulldogs of Fisk University completed an undefeated streak to emerge as the champions of the 25th Annual Honda Campus All-Star Challenge National Championship. It is Fisk's first national title. For their efforts, the team has earned a grant of $50,000 dollars for their institution.
The Fisk team was led by captain Victor Bradley, with players Matthew Barthwell, Anthony Franklin and Anna Wilkins. Dr. Stafford Cargill coached the team to their first-ever victory. Bradley was also named an All-Star for leading his division in points scored per game. That honor awards an additional $1,000 grant to Fisk.
Former two-time national champion Oakwood University earned a $25,000 institutional grant as the runner-up. In all, more than $325,000 in grants were awarded to the 76 HBCUs who competed this year.
Since 1989, Honda Campus All-Star Challenge has engaged the best and brightest students at the HBCUs in its annual academic quiz championship -- the "HBCU Battle of Brains." Honda is proud of its relationship with the HBCUs, and in addition to sponsoring the competition, has awarded over $7,500,000 million in grants. Honda's participation highlights the quality of HBCU education, and the grants provide needed support for the institutions.
