2022 Practice Court


Recommended Posts


From DK's twitter account.  Looks like they put a temporary floor in the PE Building where the pool was infilled.  Honestly, it would be brilliant if they made this a recreation court for students...that would allow the renovated Old Gym practice/recreation court to be a permanent Practice Court for M/W hoops.  Alternative, it would be cool to make this a permanent M/W basketball practice facility and then move the students into the renovated PE gym.

On second thought, I am not sure if this is a regulation length court because I believe the pool was not regulation length, which is why we never had a swim team @ D1.  So...make this the student court.  Either way, doesn't look terrible.

Pool was six lanes and 25 meters.  I think NCAA requires 8 lanes.  Funny they still have the list of all the swim team records.

25 meters = 82 feet, so 12 feet short of a full court unless they dug out the pool deck. Looks like space might be tight on the sidelines, but it’s practice

TU story on the first day of practice

Shot clock will arrive shortly, court will eventually be full-size, right now it's a GymRat court.

Hamlet Tibbs' replacement will be announced Thursday.

Fellow sophomore forward Aaron Reddish said he thinks this team is better equipped to handle the challenge than last year’s. “This year, we’re a lot tougher than we were last year in terms of fighting through adversity,” Reddish said.

Killings added six new players — transfers Malik Edmead, Da’Kquan Davis, Japannah Kellogg and Sarju Patel; and freshmen Jonathan Beagle and Marcus Jackson. “I think the opportunity for this team is exploiting mismatches. I think there’s going to be multiple guys on the floor that have an opportunity to take advantage of the defense. Now, our job is to help them identify what that looks like and make the right decisions,” Killings said. He noted the team’s versatility and increased basketball IQ — partly a result of former freshmen like Neely and Reddish getting a full season under their belts.

A few bumps and bruises, but everybody's available for practice. Amica still has a few restrictions.
