Tigers Basketball Team Debuts under New Coach Josh Pastner

The Curtain is UP on the New Tigers Basketball team... and FedExForum was ready for the welcome

A huge crowd on hand tonight Downtown as the U of M sets sail on a new era with a Rookie Head Coach and only 8 scholarship players...

But, this exhibition game against crosstown foe LeMoyne-Owen, an NCAA Division Two school, is designed more as a connect the dots test than a full blown S.A.T.

Doneal Mack showing guard play will be a key to the Blue and Gray this season, 8-points 3-boards, an assist and a Block.

The Magicians making magic early with T-Head former BTW star Taurean Moy lighting it up from downtown 14-points

Steal Tigers D takes over late in First Half.. Duke Transfer Elliott Williams will be a Star for his hometown Team.. 24 points on 8 of 11 shooting with 6 rebounds and 6 assists..

Robert Sallie an efficient 11 points on 5 of 10 from the floor with 6 rebounds and 3-steals.

Final score Tigers win 98-68.

The U of M has one more exhibition game next Monday night November 9th at FedExForum against CBU.
