Six people were killed in a shooting spree on Saturday night in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Western Michigan’s men’s and women’s basketball teams are showing their support for the victims by wearing 'Kalamazoo Strong' shirts.

It’s hard to glean any positives from a situation like this, but it was a kind gesture from Western Michigan nonetheless. Men’s head coach Steve Hawkins said it was important for his team to show immediate support for the people of Kalamazoo, and it’s difficult to disagree with him on that front.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
