Harding University men’s basketball season for the spring 2021 is on the road to success. Winning their first two games against Ouachita Baptist and Henderson State proved the Bisons are ready for the season.
Leading the Bisons for the 2021season are head coach Jeff Morgan and assistant coach Ray Lynn Woods. Additionally, seniors Romio Harvey, Tyler Roth and Emir Ahmedic help to guide the team toward success.
“The season is going very well,” senior guard Tyler Roth said. “We are off to a great start. We have had a lot of speed bumps, but we’ve handled them well and it shows on and off the court.”
Roth tells of the challenges COVID-19 has brought and he believes his team is strong and can overcome any obstacle. Roth said his years on the team have allowed him to appreciate the opportunities and new perspectives he has gained while playing the game he loves.
“The best thing about being on the team is I gained lifelong brothers,” Roth said.
Senior guard Romio Harvey said he is proud to play at Harding University.
“My passion is basketball,” Harvey said. “I always give it my all and represent God on and off the court.”
Harvey said he encourages underclassmen to find their passions and use it to honor God.
“Always give it your all and pursue your goals, and do it all for Christ,” Harvey said.
Freshman guard Stetson Smithson said he is proud of his team and is ready for the rest of his team to be reunited and for the fans to be back in the stands.
“My favorite thing about being on the team is how close we are,” Smithson said.
Upcoming games this month include Arkansas Tech, Southern Arkansas and Henderson State, all of which will be broadcast through HU16 streaming.
