LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) They're two of the cornerstones of a Bellarmine team that is poised to make another run at a national title. And on Saturday afternoon, Michael Parrish and George Suggs will say goodbye to Knights Hall. "They've been stellar, stellar in the classroom. In the locker room. On the court, and they're all that's right in college athletics," said Bellarmine head coach, Scotty Davenport.
Both seniors have enjoyed their time at the school, and say Knight's Hall will always have a special place in their hearts. "It will be pretty emotional. Just to know that Knight's Hall is a special play. Bellarmine staff, and Bellarmine fans, it's a special place. It will be pretty emotional," said Parrish. "I've been kinda reminiscing a little bit about fun games I've played here. Tough losses, kinda everything. There's nothing like playing here, so it's definitely going to be something I'm going to miss," said Suggs.
They come from two totally different backgrounds. Michael Parrish is from right here in Louisville. George Suggs from St. Louis, but they have a strong bond, are happy to walk out on senior night together. "People deserve to hear his story. He's been through a lot, and he's worked really hard to be where he is right now," commented Suggs on Parrish. "George has always been there for me through classes, through mentoring, through making sacrifices, just uplifting," said Parrish.
