Delaware State University Men’s Basketball Secures Commitment from Twin Brothers

The Delaware State University men’s basketball team added two new commitments from the same family. Twin brothers Kareem and Kaseem Watson, Philadelphia natives who recently played at Cal State-Bakersfield, signed their letters of intent to join the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference runners-up last week.

The Watson brothers, 6-foot-8 wing players, were all-Catholic League players before committing to CSUB in 2022. Kareem redshirted during the 2023 season, while Kaseem redshirted this past season. Kareem Watson played in 22 games last season for the Roadrunners, scoring a season-high six points against both CSU-Fullerton (Jan. 27) and UC-Irvine (Feb. 17).

Kaseem Watson played in 24 games for Bakersfield in 2022-23, scoring a season-high 10 points against UC-San Diego on Jan. 21 in his lone start of the season.

The brothers have a joint Instagram account, WatsonW0rld, where they chronicle their experience as identical twin brothers and basketball players.

The Hornets finished the 2023-24 season 15-19, advancing to the MEAC title game before falling to repeat champion Howard 70-67. DSU lost their starting backcourt to the transfer portal as MEAC Rookie of the Year Deywilk Tavarez (College of Charleston) and sophomore Jevin Muniz (Florida Gulf Coast) have found new homes.
