Wednesday’s basketball game between Central State and Wilberforce is more than a competition on the court. The schools united to hold a canned food drive for various pantries around the county. Pictured, Mark Lawrence II, Naomi Shorts, Laila Christmon, and Cedric Tolbert show off the nearly 1,200 cans CSU collected. The university set a goal of 1,000. Tolbert, a CSU grad, came up with the idea to unite the schools, who have a fierce rivalry on the court.
