In Christianity, and especially Judaism, this Moses guy is kind of a big deal. Long story short, he basically saved the Hebrews from the Ten Plagues, personally received the Ten Commandments from God and lived to be 120. That’s all really noble and whatnot, but did he ever lead a mid-major basketball program from the depth’s of the Horizon League to an NCAA Tournament bid? No? Well then, the line forms behind Cleveland State coach Gary Waters, Moses: â†µ
â†µâ‡¥ â†µâ‡¥“[Waters] literally believed that God has sent him here, and this is what he was supposed to accomplish,” says Jayson Gee, Cleveland State’s associate head coach. “God sent Moses to free Israel. God sent Gary Waters to resurrect Cleveland State. I really believe that. I believe that 100 percent. â†µâ‡¥â†µ â†µRidiculous, you say? Well, how else do you explain their first NCAA Tournament win in over 20 years coming against the Demon Deacons? Heavy, man.â†µ
â†µâ‡¥“He’s a prophet. Everything that’s happening -- and you can ask anybody in this locker room -- is something he put down in black and white before it happened.” â†µâ‡¥â†µ
