Thornton Headed to the Patriot League



Whit Thornton (MBA) had a very busy summer.

The 6'5 wing/power forward was in the process of changing high school moving from MUS in Memphis down I40 to MBA in Nashville.

Playing for the Nashville Celtics, Thornton was in the presence of college coaches' majority of the month of July.

The exposure paid off as Thornton pledged to continue his college career in the Patriot League.

The Black Knights of Army and new coach Zach Spiker welcome the lanky newcomer into the fold but not before he makes a mad push to get his new squad, MBA a shot at winning a state tournament in DII.
