ATLANTA - The Maroon Tigers of Morehouse Men’s Basketball Team is rolling through an undefeated season whether anyone is aware of it or not, but it's high time the word did know!
The team is 18-0 and going for number 19 Wednesday night at Claflin University in South Carolina. The Maroon Tigers beat them once at home about a week ago, so they got to stay focused on the road.
“Well, there's always a chip on your shoulder when people don't necessarily recognize you and so I tell them just keep doing what you're doing and eventually the recognition will come,” said Grady Brewer, Maroon Tigers Head Coach.
They're making some noise at the AU Center, but they still haven't gotten everybody's attention.
“Yeah, you know, we're the only undefeated team. So, I feel like we should be number one, but in our heads, we just gonna play. So, I feel like, you know, we'll eventually be number one,” said Tyrius Walker, Maroon Tigers Guard
“Once people see our product, they will understand that we have a very good basketball team over at Morehouse,” said Brewer.
The coach keeps a cool head and uses it as a motivating tool.
