NCAA Watch: Player Spotlight - The Morris Twins Markieff #21 and Marcus #22

words // Nick Engvall

Over the years, the Kansas Jayhawks seem to always have a significant presence in the paint. The last few years, they’ve doubled up on inside presence thanks to the Morris twins. Marcus stands about 6-foot, 9-inches and weighs about 235 pounds, while his brother Markieff stand a smidge taller at 6-foot, 10-inches and weighs in at 245 pounds.

The brothers combine to be one of the most effective duos in college basketball, and this year, which is their junior year, has been the best yet. Marcus is averaging 17.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. Markieff is right behind him with 13.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. It has resulted in the Jayhawks’ seventh consecutive regular season conference title and their second consecutive Big 12 Tournament title.

Thus far in the tournament, they’ve led Kansas to easy victories over Boston and Illinois. One of this year’s Cinderella stories is their next task, the Richmond Spiders.

Check out some of the footwear below from their careers at Kansas.
