#WNSTSweet16 list highlights Baltimore’s best ever college hoopsters

#4 – Reggie Holmes, Morgan State

I was there at Hill Field House the night Reggie Holmes surpassed Marvin Webster as Morgan State’s all-time leading scorer.

It was a night I’ll never forget.


Very few players ever brought the crowd along with them the way Holmes did during his four years at Morgan State.  People came to see HIM play.  They were there because of HIM.  Reggie Holmes was the reason Morgan State basketball became the cool thing to do again.

Baltimore has seen a lot of high quality basketball players in its day.  Only a few did what Reggie Holmes did.

    Great list. I would offer a few other names for an honorable mention list: Roger Dickens (TSU), Pat McKinley (TSU), Brian Matthews (TSU), Ronald Smith (U of B), Tony Carter (Coppin St), Yarborough Roberts (Morgan St), and Teddy Jones (U of B).

    Excellent List and research, Drew. Struck a chord of many memories of greatness. My only honorable mention would be, Maurice “Mo” Cannon (Loyola College).
