More HBCU basketball buzz is coming from HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities), Morgan State University. Former Wake Forest guard, Sharon Wright Jr. announced he will continue playing college basketball at the university.
Sharone Wright Jr., son of former NBA player Sharone Wright Sr., played high school basketball for West Florence High School and Legacy Early College High School in South Carolina. According to DMV Daily, in the 2016-2017 season, Wright was named to the South Carolina All-State team in his junior year at West Florence.
Here’s what Sharan had to say,
“Before I made this decision, I wanted thank God for blessing me with the ability to play the game of basketball. I am forever grateful that I’ve gotten to experience the many great things basketball has given me. I’ve been thinking on this for some time now and with everything thats going on in the world today, it has been a difficult time for many people but mainly us as African Americans. It’s saddening to me to know the world will always be this way towards US whether if we play a sport or not. It doesn’t matter. MY decision was for myself and what I thought was best for me. With all that being said, after thought and much prayer with my family, I’ve chosen to further my education and basketball career at Morgan State University”.
