Best College Athletes: De’Torrion Ware

How do you earn 2021-22 MEAC Preseason Player of the Year honors despite only starting two games the previous season?

Well, you play a role as a dynamite sixth man, that’s how.

That was the case for De’Torrion Ware, who came off the bench in 20 of 22 games for the Morgan State men’s basketball team in 2020-21, averaging 17.0 points and 5.7 rebounds for a Bears team that made it to the MEAC championship game.
