By losing 59-51 to Alabama A&M in the quarterfinals of the SWAC tournament, the Grambling State Tigers basketball team finish the 2012-2013 season with a 0-28 record, becoming the eighth team in NCAA division I history to finish the season without a single win.
Moral victories? This was the first time they lost a game by single digits. Yes, it’s been that horrific of a season from the Tigers, who scored more than 50 points only twice all year. They finished 347th in the nation with 49.7 points per game and 345th in field goal percentage with a whopping 36.1% success rate.
In previous years, the NJIT Highlanders (2007-2008), Savannah State Tigers (2004-2005), Prairie View A&M Panthers (1991-1992), The Citadel Bulldogs (1954-1955), Baylor Bears (1944-1945), William & Mary Tribe (1936-1937) and the Dartmouth Big Green (1917-1918) are the only other teams to fail and win a single game through an entire basketball season.
