PROVIDENCE â€“ Marshon Brooks had his fill of Morgan State by the time he reported to the Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Center on Thursday afternoon. Thatâ€™s why the Providence College senior wanted to make sure that the rest of the Friars knew that the Bears were no slouch.
â€śWe hear it from the fans, from Facebook, that Morgan State is no joke and that theyâ€™ve been to the NCAA Tournament the last two years,â€ť said Brooks. â€śIt was a different atmosphere.â€ť
