During the week of ‘ Kross Examination,’ a week-long event held by the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, the Kappas had a close game on the basketball court.
Located on Court 3 in the student rec, the Kappas basketball team, known as the ‘King of the Courts,’ had a healthy competition against the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.
The game was held to promote unity of Greek organizations on campus.
“On behalf of the Lambda phi chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi tonight’s basketball game was considered a classic,” coach and former Kappa Tyler Barker said. “If you did not attend you missed a great game. The purpose of this game was to promote Greek unity and a healthy competition against NPHC fraternities.”
At the end of the first half, the Kings of the Court held a 20-10 lead.
Alphas started catching up during second half.
Both teams played hard, but the Kappas were defeated by the Alphas 45-43.
“I felt it was a very intense game; both teams definitely gave 110 percent while pushing the ball down the court,” assistant coach and former Kappa member Watson Lunsford. “The crowd was so live and pumped during the game, it was great to be a part of.”
