Pershing basketball looks to defend city championship

By Alonzo Nellems Staff Writer The Pershing boys’ varsity basketball team enters the season with high expectations despite having to replace four graduated starters from last season’s City Championship team. Coach Wydell Henry said he will have his team running more this season, in hopes of becoming more aggressive on defensive and offensive. “[I expect us] to be very competitive and win city and state championship,” Henry said.. “We are working even harder and running more than last year.” Henry has been coaching for 11 years at Pershing. “I enjoy coaching and the best part it is being able to see the youth develop and go off to college,” Henry said. As a child, Henry, was inspired by his middle school coach, Marcus Webster. “Coach Webster was like a father figure,” Henry said. Henry said he expects great things from his team this year and he wants them to be competitive and work together as a team. Star player Marquel Ingram looks to lead the team to a State Championship and another City Championship. “This year’s team is mentally and physically tougher and play more as a team,” said senior combo-guard Ingram, who has received college offers from numerous mid-major schools. Pershing basketball has become a tradition of excellence and this year’s team seems poised to keep that excellence going. “I love Pershing basketball tradition, and the way they hold us accountable as young men,” said Ingram.
