Keys To Overcome Duke

TSU Men’s face their biggest challenge in quite some time playing and they have to do it in the famed Cameron Indoor. Here a few things TSU must overcome to even hang around with Duke.

Keep those Cameron Crazies Quiet

Probably the most intimidating bunch of folks. I am sure they will make a whole bunch jokes about our team.

Make Outside Shots

TSU Men currently average 37% from 3 point land. Delano Spencer and Darreon Reddick are going to need to have a great shooting night to keep us close. We average 71 points per game. That won’t be enough. Our bigs also need to make a few base line jumpers to open up the driving lanes for the guards.

Limit Turnovers

This probably the biggest concern going into this game. We average 15 TO a game. We can’t let them have extra scoring opportunities.

Easy Transition Baskets

We need to make sure we are getting a few easy baskets. Many of our shots are highly contested, which is evident by our low field goal percentage. Let’s get a few rebounds and a few steals and get the ball up the court quickly for easy scores. We will need it because Duke is a very good defensive team as well.





FAMU Rejected TSU Offers For Band Travel

As the back the forth continues between FAMU and TSU, we learn more about previous deals that were rejected. 

“We extended two offers to you to assist with FAMU band travel. These were: (1) TSU would pay the $60,000 cost for the FAMU band to travel to TSU this year, and FAMU would, in return, pay the same amount for the TSU band to travel to FAMU next year; or (2) TSU would extend a loan to FAMU in the amount of $30,000 to be paid back over the course of the 2014-2015 academic year.

“You declined both offers. Instead, you made an absolutely one-sided offer and stated that FAMU could not afford to come to TSU, and that TSU had to pay all expenses for FAMU to travel to Nashville this year. You further stated that even if TSU paid the expenses this year, FAMU could not reciprocate and pay for TSU to travel to Tallahassee next year.”

Next year’s game will be the last in a four-game contract between the two programs, whose longtime rivalry began in 1944.
