The distinctions of a Morehouse Man are recognized all over the world. Celebrating its Sesquicentennial year, there is no sign of slowing down for the college in strides to produce sharp young men like Duby Maduegbunam. Native of the Hub City, Boston, Massachusetts, this 6-5 Sophomore shoots for the target of dressing well and making buckets for the Morehouse College Men’s Basketball team.
The ultimate goal in life is to play basketball professionally. Having an average of 16.2 points so far this season, and a total of 162 pts. Duby is playing his heart out towards his goal and has proof for it.
Concluding the first week of the season, he was named the SIAC Newcomer of the Week. The Morehouse forward was also bestowed the honor as SIAC Player of the Week earlier this past December for his outstanding performance against Lane College with a career record of 26 points.
“The best thing Duby does with garments out-of-style is bringing out versatility…”
Majoring in Cinematic Television & Emerging Media Studies, Duby also has interests of working in the entertainment industry with film and becoming a producer. He is big on accessories because the addition of them results in the greatest touch. “He excels at what he would call “Arm Candy” which are accessories,” Duby’s friend Donovan Preston said.
Friends pay close attention to what their friends habits are. “Duby always has a nice layer of bracelets and a watch on his left arm with a nice slim gold chain either tucked in or out of his shirt,” Preston described. Duby describes his style as urban mixed with European. “He is able to take a basic pair of jeans and cut it up along with distressing it. Before you know it, he is rocking something created from scratch but still fashionable under a urban trend,” Preston said.
Staying up with what’s in-style is not Duby’s thing. He focuses on bringing arrangements to life that leave the scene. “The best thing Duby does with garments out-of-style is bringing out versatility while making it seem effortless,” Malik Abu said. Maduegbunam’s inspiration is fashion is his brother, Akosa Maduegbunam, who has made appearances various places with his fashion styles including the Today Show. Both the love for basketball and fashion are a commonality amongst the two.
Maduegbunam refuses to do to much when it comes to dressing and that explains his Do’s and Don’ts:
Do – Slim fit, plain and simple, layering, distressing, a lot of shoes, stylish socks
Don’t – No baggy clothes. No overly graphic clothing. No fitted caps
