Senior Profile: Morgan Bears Forward Dewayne Jackson Leaves With Big Achievements

Morgan State senior forward Dewayne Jackson has made a name for himself in the past four years. Jackson is being mentioned with former Morgan players like Reggie Jackson, Kevin Thompson, and may just be the second player from Morgan to play in the NBA (Marvin Webster is the only player from Morgan who played in the NBA as well as the ABA–American Basketball Association).

Key efforts from the Bears’ big men aided in the abrupt turnaround. Forward Shaquille Duncan dominated the paint on both sides of the floor with 11 points, 4 blocks and 1 […]
