The summer is officially moving by too fast...I just got an email request from our conference office for our 2009-2010 wbkb roster and quick facts and I still haven't filed the senior class from last year's stuff in our archives yet!
Just a couple of quick notes for you....if you plan on visiting us in the AOB any time soon, please be aware that construction of the Penny Hardaway Hall of Fame began in earnest this morning as the parking lot adjacent to the AOB on Normal is now closed. You are welcome to park in the designated visitor parking spots in front of the Ticket Office side, but we will be crunched for parking from now on since the parking lot (all the way down to the second tree) will be under construction as the new Hall of Fame.
A couple of the players for the upcoming season are on campus now and are taking classes. I don't know that everyone knows what these student-athletes schedules look like during the fall and spring, so to be able to knock out 3-6 credits in the summer is a huge help in keeping everyone on track with their respective degree programs.
You may have seen the release about the ranking of our women's basketball signing class for the upcoming season. It will be a big change in faces on the court compared to last season, with three (maybe four) players who played last year able to suit up this season. We counted up a week or so ago, and since Coach McFerrin has arrived in Memphis in April of 2008, we have signed 12 different players to the wbkb roster!
The Sixth Annual Fast Break Club Golf Scramble has been scheduled for Sept. 11th. Registration forms are available on the women's basketball page in the right hand column, or by contacting Gaylon Hall. Even if you don't golf, you can still support the outing by donating a door prize or sponsoring a hole. That form is available as well on our website. The goal is to raise money for locker room and Elma Roane Fieldhouse renovations and to start fundraising for an international basketball tour, so any and all help is much-appreciated.
