Sunday December 4th, 2011 is the day the Trojans take their talents to the Big Apple! Virginia State University’s Men’s Basketball team will face off with their arch rival Virginia Union University at New York City’s Madison Square Garden for the 2011 Big Apple Classic. At 3 PM sharp, VSU will show you why they are the BEST HBCU at the Big Apple Classic! Under the direction of recently appointed Coach Darrel Jacobs, the Trojans have had a promising season so far and that reign will continue.

The Virginia State Trojans have been making headlines lately off the courts with their recent campus and academic accomplishments. Beating the pants off of their classic archrival would just be another notch in their belt! Not to mention Virginia State annihilated Virginia Union in this year’s football homecoming game with a score of 39-14. So why wouldn’t they do the same on the basketball court.

Virginia State Trojans are the epitome of resilience and determination!  Always working, pushing and striving in whatever they do!  Putting their best foot forward to get the job done and this game is no different! Even if they were to lose (thought I doubt that will happen) rest assured they tried every play in the book and the loss wasn’t an easy one!

Although I can’t be in New York for the game itself I will be fully dressed in my VSU gear wherever I am, from head to toe in that beautiful orange and blue! In the words of our Alma Mater “Hail State, Hail, Hail, Hail!”
