On this sunny Friday afternoon I have one simple message: keep it on the court. On Wednesday this unfortunately was not the case, as 17 year old Tyrone Lawson was shot multiple times after a high school basketball game. The two teams involved were Simeon and Morgan Park, both being Chicago teams. Simeon is of course where the number two overall player of the 2013 class plays (Jabari Parker). The tragedy occurred in the parking lot of Chicago State University’s stadium, where the game was played. Players from both teams were held in their respective locker rooms for safety reasons. Two suspects have been arrested, and a hand gun has been recovered. I understand rivalries, but there is no need for them to break into violence where lives end up being lost.
Have a great weekend and remember to watch the Cats take on the Auburn Tigers tomorrow night at 9 pm on ESPNU
