Penny Hardaway Breaks Down Tiger Staff Cohesion

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - We've still got about 3 Months before the Memphis Tigers Basketball team stars hooping for real.

Tuesday, new U of M head coach provided an update on how things are going with his first squad, as the team gets in mini workouts during summer school.

Aside from trying to mesh seven new players, Hardaway also has to make sure his Staff of former Tiger Teammate Tony Madlock, and NBA Veteran Mike Miller, and former NBA Coach of the Year Sam Mitchell, all get together on the same page to present a unified message.

Penny breaks down how each coach is settling into his role.

"Mike is more of a tactician," says Hardaway. "Sam is the grandfather that's going to get on you and scold you a little bit. Tony is the dog. His nickname is Dog, he's gonna be the one to keep everybody else in line. Me, I'm more laid back until I have to kind of step on the gas. I'm more laid back and observe everything."

Hardaway did confirm former UAB signee Ryan Boyce will be a walk on with the Tigers this season. Boyce starred on Hardaway's East High State Championship team last season.
