    It's been a long road for Jackie Baucom. A marriage to a powerful Charlotte strip club owner, the victim of domestic abuse, life as a swinger, and the challenge of starting over.

The CIAA conference tournament is filled with back-to-back basketball, and the hopes of an athletic scholarship. But after the sun goes down, and the last shot makes it in the hoop - the city of Charlotte transforms. 

Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon said the tournament is a huge economic boost.

Michael Tinsley is a party promoter - and he's transforming this Italian restaurant by day - into a social mixer for the CIAA crowd. He’s chosen to hire an African American poet to deliver the spoken word, instead of a celebrity or musician. February is still black history month - and Tinsley hopes his party reflects more on the African American culture - and the opportunity this tournament presents to college athletes.
