COACH AND PROGRAM
Cy Alexander is ready to take Tennessee State to the next level.
Alexander, who built South Carolina State into a power in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, weathered a storm this summer involving Division I scheduling and Los Angeles City College, where Tennessee State's Clarence Matthews and former Tigers Wayne Arnold and Kareem Grant played.
Matthews is a senior and Grant and Arnold completed their eligibility last season.
"We committed no violations," Alexander said. "That's a cleared deal. That's a dead issue."
