The dusty smell of the gym, the squeak basketball shoes on the gym floor, the sound of dribbling down the court are all reasons as to why Jack Kelly loves basketball. But overall Jack loves basketball for the team, that feels so much like family.
Jack’s overnight at Morningside is what made the team feel like home. He felt the friendly competition between teammates during open gym. He was a part of the silly banter and the team chemistry at dinner. And he felt like just one of the guys when he hung out with the team that night at a player’s house.
Family is an import part in Jack’s life. Especially when his plans post college are to go back home and work in the family business to be near family. It’s a no brainer why Jack would pick Morningside, because of the team and the brotherly bond that they all share.
