We're Dancing: Morgan State Bears

Ef9eb9fd-9592-425f-9577-499755746a00_medium
A comeback story for the Morgan State Bears.  Once the coach of Cal, Todd Bozeman had to resign in the fall of 1996 in light of the Jelani Gardner debacle -- when the former player's parents exposed Bozeman for paying them to attend games after his playing time dwindled. 

That's in the past now and Bozeman is taking the Bears to the dance for the first time ever.  The MEAC champs also were tops during the regular season, and feature a balacned team with a nine man rotation.

More on them after the jump.

 

Location: Baltimore, Maryland

Enrollment: 6,000

Record: 23-11 (13-3)

Leading scorers: Reggie Holmes (16 ppg); Marquise Kelly (12 ppg)

What to know:

 

  • While they didn't have a stellar non-conference schedule, they only suffered one loss this season by more than 20 points ( @ Utah 37-66).
  • You remember, they beat Maryland 66-65 in early January, which sort of started the drama between Gary Williams and the higer ups in College Park.
  • Leading scorer Reggie Holmes account for 56 percent of the Bears three point makes.

 

Projected seed: 16; the MEAC ranks 30th out of the 31 conferences.
