 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Jerry Hollis scored 19 points and Johnson C. Smith beat Virginia Union 70-63 on Saturday night, capturing its second straight Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship.
Ryann Scott had 13 points and Tavaris Little added 12 for Johnson C. Smith (23-7), whose speed and pressure in the frontcourt posed problems for Virginia Union early.
Johnson C. Smith, which led the CIAA with nearly 10 steals per game, had five in the game's first five minutes and didn't let its lead dip below four points the rest of the way.
Gregg Thondique led the Panthers (21-6) with 23 points and 13 rebounds. Braxton Byerson added 16 points for Virginia Union, which won three straight titles from 2004-06 - its most recent in a win against Johnson C. Smith.
