Book it. Send it in. Better yet, FAX it in.

Detroit Pershing senior basketball star David Syfax is headed to Morgan State for his college hoops. Syfax, a 6-foot-7 post player, was one of the PSL’s hidden gems the past two seasons – nice touch, solid footwork, sound work ethic. He averaged 15 points and almost 10 rebounds per night. This is a great pick up for the MSU Bears of the mid-major DI Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Maryland-based Morgan State made back-to-back appearances in the Big Dance (NCAA Tournament) in 2009 and 2010. The Bears went 9-22 in 2016 and are coached by former University of Cal-Berkley sideline general Todd Bozeman. One-time University of Michigan head coach Brian Ellerbe is Bozeman’s top assistant and successfully recruited Syfax to Crab Cake Country.
