Ten Bears based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Dr. Harrison and Chip Silverman really capture the story of Morgan State's lacrosse program. It is so much more than a sports book. Parts of this book are laugh out loud funny and others will make you cry. Even baseball fans will enjoy this book.
This book is a true story written about a time, post civil rights movement 1969-1975, when a predominately Black college, Morgan State, lacrosse team played in a game reserved for the White elites universities, such as, Johns Hopkins, Navy, Hofstra, East Carolina, Rutgers, and Amherst. Lacrosse was primarily played on the east coast of the United States at that time. Against all odds the Ten Bears played courageously and pulled off one of the biggest upset in collegiate sports by beating top ranked Washington and Lee University. The book also told of certain events which occurred in the Baltimore City area relating to the Civil Rights movement and people involved. I highly recommend this book.
