For lots of folks around here, the time for College Basketball can't come soon enough...especially Memphis Tigers Basketball..
As a matter of fact, the Larry Finch practice facility on the U of M campus was filled to nearly overflowing this afternoon as Coach John Calipari invited the Big Blue faithful to catch a first glimpse of his team with an open workout.
The Regulars look ready, like Center Joey Dorsey and Chris Douglas-Roberts...
But most of the onlookers are checking out the newcomers...and there's a bunch of them.
There's highly touted point guard Willie Kemp of Bolivar..
High Flying guard Doneal Mack, who comes to Memphis after getting a release from his commitment to Florida..
Plus, Big Men Hashim Bailey of New York...
And Home Grown Space Eater Pierre Niles of Ridgeway..
Judging from the reactions, fans liked what they saw.
Remember, the Tigers are staging Memphis Madness Friday Night at FedExForum.
