Honda LogoSC State will host the 21st Campus Tournament for the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC) on Saturday, September 19, 2009 at Noon in the K.W Green Student Center (Bulldog Lounge) on campus.

Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC) is a year-long, question and answer game that combines academic material, popular culture and sports in a format emphasizing quick recall. African- American history and culture is prominently featured in the questions. This challenge brings together the whole campus community which consists of students, faculty, administration and alumni.


The HCASC season involves two tiers, the campus tournament and the national championship. Campus competition takes place in the Fall with all students eligible to play in the campus tournament. 64 HBCUs qualify to attend the National Championship Tournament, which is held in the Spring.


“It’s an amazing experience for the students,” said Dr. William Hine, professor of political science at SC State, “SC State students are very competitive and smart; they possess a diverse range of knowledge.”


After the campus tournament, Dr. Hine, campus coordinator selects the varsity team of players (up to 12 players). The team meets in weekly practice sessions until the final National Campus Tournament (NCT) Team (four players and one alternate) are named.
