Grambling State’s basketball team just completed a regular season that was historic for all the wrong reasons.
Working with a fourth head coach in five seasons and a roster consisting of just eight scholarship players and seven walk-ons from the intramural program due to NCAA sanctions over APR scores, the Tigers went 0–27 during the regular season, capped by a 74–62 loss to Alabama State on Saturday.
How bad has this season been? Grambling has yet to lose a game by fewer than double digits. It is at the bottom of the national rankings according to the RPI, KenPom, BPI and Sagarin ratings.
Amazingly, Grambling’s season from hell isn’t over. Despite their winless year thus far, the Tigers will have at least one more game, as they are still eligible for the SWAC tournament. If Grambling loses that game, it will become just the eighth Division I college basketball program ever to have a winless season.
The sooner that this forgettable 2012–2013 campaign is over, the better.
