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.

 

 

 

Lakatriona ‘Bernice’ Brunson First Female Football HC in Florida

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.
