Stony Brook star Jameel Warney dedicates every game to 'Return of the Mack' singer Mark Morrison

You loved Jameel Warney all along, you just didn't know it.

"The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States of America, this is a fact. The Internet has confirmed it.

The United States also has an unofficial anthem, however, and it's called "Return of the Mack" by Mark Morrison. Morrison hasn't done a whole lot since he let all the people know that he was back to run the show, but that doesn't mean that he's been forgotten.

At the top of the list of Morrison's lingering admirers is Stony Brook star Jameel Warney, who has -- if his Twitter account is any indication -- dedicated his senior season to the singer who needed to stop worrying about his big break.

Despite this dedicated show of support, Morrison has yet to acknowledge Warney, a fact that Seawolf hopes will change at some point in the near future.

For those unfamiliar, Warney is one of the best mid-major players in all of college basketball. Earlier this month, he solidified his status as one of the best players in America East history by winning his third straight league Player of the Year award, as well as his second straight defense Player of the Year nod.

Stony Brook is now in the NCAA Tournament and of course Warney has continued the tradition.

Not surprisingly, Warney has a lot of pull at Stony Brook. In fact, when the college stopped serving their usual gyros on Wednesday (a Warney favorite), he was so vocal about his displeasure that they began serving them on game days.

Just another notch in the belt of Jameel Warney, the man who has secretly been your favorite college basketball player all along.
