The Tigers spent Monday’s practice working on defense.  I know it seems like that is all I report that they do in practice, but it has been said by coach Pastner as well as several other that, “Defense Wins Championships.”

Coach told the team that to be an elite team in the country “We must rebound! And not just the bigs, we need our guards to become better at rebounding”  This is a solid statement because great defense and poor rebounding do not go together.



The team worked on rebounding by using a form of “Cut Throat Rebounding.”  The engery level for practice was good and the Tigers are ready to begin this season.

As everyone in the city of Memphis should know, there is an exhibition game Wednesday night against Christian Brothers University at the FedEx Forum and then the season kicks off next Monday night against North Florida.
