    MB: My relationship with my dad is a special one. He’s my idol. People ask me all the time who did I emulate growing up – I didn’t have a famous player to be honest with you, don’t have a favorite pro team, my dad has been my idol on and off the court.


    MB: We have a nice little area down here in the basement that’s dedicated to his accomplishments. Nice are to come to sometimes and reminisce and we talk about basketball a lot.


    CB: I think that’s where you really started to establish yourself. It was with your brother and your cousins and everybody. We always talk about how small you were but you fit into this group. You were the man on this team.


    MB: Yeah it was a lot of fun.


    MB: My dad was in charge of the program for 25 years, he ran the program a certain way. One of the things I try to do is basically, I’ve taken his blueprint and tried to copy it.




    MB: It goes without saying obviously you’re my hero, my idol. Watching you coach did give me a bug. Means everything. Really does.


    CB: Thank you Marcus. I Appreciate that.


    LG: The pride you have wearing the jersey – knowing you play for New Jersey City University – A very prestigious school, it’s something real special to know you’re part of the program.


    LG: Can’t be too complacent. Everybody knows that we have a big target on our back.


    ST: In order to be a playoff team we gotta play for each other. I got your back. I’m your brother.


    SP: Coach takes pride in hard work and effort, because that’s the only thing he says that will make you play.


    SP: At the end of the day defense wins championships. So whenever we get in the huddle it’s 1-2-3 hard-work, 4-5-6 Family.


    PRACTICE: 1-2-3 hard-work, 4-5-6 Family


    MB: Go! The harder you run, the more rest you get.


    MB: When I recruit, one of the things I do is I look for players that are fighters.


    MB: Pick it up now fellas.


    SP: He wants to drive you to be the best you can be.


    MB: Speed, quickness. Speed.  Good job Nell.


    LG: We don’t care about the Division 3 label at all.


    SP: National championship. That’s the only goal I can see.


    MB: This is probably the first time in my life I don’t mind being second. Obviously my dad is the winningest coach, and uhh, it’s really a family affair. I’m really proud of where the program is right now, coming off of two 20 win seasons, having a great start so far, I’m just trying to keep it going.
