With "Why Not Us": North Carolina Central University Men’s Basketball docuseries, Chris Paul is going next-level with his appreciation of historically Black college and university (HBCU) culture.

The eight-episode series that premiered Feb. 12 and is presented by The Undefeated via ESPN+ follows head coach LeVelle Moton and the NCCU men’s basketball team for eight weeks as they navigate the challenges of being a small program and working toward their goal of becoming the first HBCU team to make the NCAA Sweet 16.
