Howard University Bison Men’s Basketball In NCAA Tournament For The First Time In Over 30 Years

It’s been a historic time for Bison as the men’s Basketball Team enter the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1992. They look forward to face-off with the Kansas Jayhawks.

Howard University Men’s Basketball Head Coach Kenneth Blakeney says, “I watched them last year in the national championship game. I saw them in the semis and in the finals. I have a lot of respect for Coach Bill Self. They will be ready. They are a great program with a lot of history and tradition.”

“It’s a great feeling. It’s a long time coming for this university,” says Team Captain, Jelani Williams.

Sophomore Bryce Harris expresses, “It’s special being able to do this with the people you battle every day within practice, to be able to show it on a big stage which is march madness.”

For all the Bison fans, the gentlemen would like everyone to know, “Thank you, guys, for believing in us. Thank you for even when we had our down moments, thank you for staying solid,” said Harris

“Tune in. We are going to put on a show. We gonna shock the world,” adds Williams.

“[It’s] a legacy that’s been a long-standing legacy of excellence and Black excellence, not only in the DMV but across the country,” Blakeney said.
