Kris Jenkins, Nate Britt's mother to wear custom shirt at championship
The mother for Kris Jenkins and Nate Britt will have a hard time picking a side to root for at tonight's NCAA tournament championship so she will wear a customized shirt that features the jerseys for both sons.
ESPN's Shannon Spake shared a photo of the custom shirt that their mother, Melody, will wear tonight:
Jenkins, the son of Felicia Jenkins and Kelvin Jenkins, was born in Columbia, S.C. He later met Britt through basketball at the age of 10. Jenkins’s parents lived in South Carolina but traveled to Baltimore to tend to the health of their infant daughter, Kori, who died at 11 months old. Jenkins hung out with the Britt family a lot before Jenkins’s parents decided to pass along custody. Jenkins and Britt legally became brothers and played on the same AAU basketball team, under Britt Sr., and then Gonzaga High School in Washington, D.C.
The game is slated to tip off at 9:19 p.m. at NRG Stadium in Houston.
