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.
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.
Former TSU Basketball standout Lakatriona Bernice Brunson has been named the first Female Head Coach in Miami, Florida. (Yes, Uncle Luke is the Defensive Coordinator)
Miami Jackson Senior High School announced Monday that they have hired Lakatriona “Bernice” Brunson as its new head football coach, the first female to fill that role in state history.
“As a woman, I’m ready for everyone to judge me because it’s a man’s field,” Brunson said during her introductory media appearance at the school.
Brunson, who was already a physical education teacher at the school, replaces former Miami Hurricanes star Earl Little, who resigned after two seasons at Jackson.
In one of her first moves with the program, Brunson hired rap legend Luther Campbell as an assistant coach.
The Final Stats are in and TSU ranks 14th in average attendance with 14, 620 per game. A total of 58,481 fans saw TSU over the season at 4 home games. We are second two Jacksonville St in the OVC and we 5th amongst HBCUs.
Many TSU fans think that buying a ticket is enough but you ticket isn’t a donation. If you want to officially support TSU Athletics then you should find the nearest seat in the stadium.
The Aristocrat of Bands has launched a fundraising campaign to raise $300,000 for new uniforms.
$600 will fund one band uniform, but any size gift will help the AOB reach their goal!
If you would like to support the campaign, please donate at the Aristocrat of Bands Foundation Account page. Please specify AOB Band Uniforms in the notes section.
Go Big Blue!
I love the new promo for the John Merritt Classic. I am so glad both Universities are using social media to promote the game! #beatASU
Sharonda Singleton was living what would appear to be a full and busy life.
She was also a reverend at Emanuel AME Church, and she was a member of a sporting family.
She was married to Christopher Singleton, who played football at Tennessee State University. And her son, Chris, who was born in 1995, plays baseball for Charleston Southern University.
Before fighting off tears as he hugged his teammates, Chris Singleton described his mother as “a God-fearing woman (who) loved everybody with all her heart.”
“Love is always stronger than hate,” he told reporters. “So if we just loved the way my mom would, then the hate won’t be anywhere close to what it is.”
