The Urban Roots Team came in second place, and the Kemeits Team finished in 3rd place. The top three teams took home plaques while each contestant had a choice of book by an African American or about some aspect of the Black experience from the available collection.

Each team consisted of four players, one of whom served as captain.  Questions included a wide variety of topics from academia to sports, books, current and past events and much more.  The Bowl, under the leadership of Owusu Bandele, Professor Emeritus in Horticulture, is open to all SU campuses and even area high schools.
