A narrow, strongly excited state was observed in the B11(p)C14 reaction at 23.288 MeV. This excitation energy is in agreement with peaks seen in C13(p)C14 and C14(e,e)C14 reactions. However, the (p) work indicates that this state may be a 3-, T=2 state. The population of this level via the (p) reaction rules this out. Furthermore, weak coupling calculations suggest that the centroid of the |B-1/211(p12,d52),(d52) configuration lies very close to this energy. It is therefore more probable that this state has a spin and parity of 7+, T=1 rather than a 3-, T=2 assignment.
