Sometimes we get a little pre-occupied here at Detroit Sports Nation. The Lions are rolling, the Red Wings are off to a solid start, the Tigers are making moves, and the Pistons are losing really well. So forgive us if we let one slip through the cracks by way of Ypsilanti.
As the college basketball season officially kicked off this week, Eastern Michigan Eagles senior forward Karrington Ward announced his presence with authority, earning top honors on Sportscenter’s Top Ten Plays this past Monday for his monster dunk over Oakland University’s Kahlil Felder (Pershing).
Ward, a third team All-MAC selection in 2013-2014 after transferring to the Eagles from Moraine Valley Community College (IL), poured in 22 points and 12 rebounds in an 89-77 victory over the visiting Grizzlies.
