Sitting at the airport before I leave with the football team on the trip to Knoxville, so I thought I'd check in.
The first and only women's basketball exhibition is this Sunday at 2:00 at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse against the Houston Jaguars. It will likely be a very tough game, because the Jaguars are loaded with talent. I was working on my charts for the game this week and it seemed everyone on the Jaguars roster was All-Conference and a few have played some pro ball as well. It also features two Conference Players of the year. But, I do like the idea of having a challenging exibition, win or lose. It lets you know where you are and what you need to do, instead of just rolling over some team and not getting much accomplished.
The games will once again be broadcast on the University's station, WUMR 91.7fm. The games have been on U-92 for over two decades. Station manager Malvin Massey, Sports Director Andrew Vandeventer, and the staff do a great job working with me and the athletic department to put these games on. Being, and Alum of Memphis and coming through the radio department as a student, I really appreciate what they do. You can follow on-line with an ALL-ACCESS subscription through www.GOTIGERSGO.COM.
