Tonight’s Starters and a New Addition to the Men’s Basketball Team
So, there’s a men’s basketball exhibition game tonight. Not sure if you knew that. Fabulous season preview on GoMason.com, where you’ll be able to join a live blog of tonight’s match. GoMason Blog spoke to Coach L a few minutes ago and he confirmed tonight’s starting lineup would be Andre Cornelius, Cam Long, Isaiah Tate, Luke Hancock and Mike Morrison. Ryan Pearson is out with a sprained big toe.
We also have some breaking news concerning the roster. A walk-on has officially made the team. Thomas Armistead, a 6’6” freshman from Clover Hill High School is on the squad. He’ll be wearing #30. Time will tell if his Facebook fan club can top the 71 members that Jimmy Nolan’s has.
GoMason Blog was curious if tonight would be about getting everyone game action or about establishing rotations, etc., with the season 10 days away. So we asked assistant coach Chris Caputo.
“You’re probably going to get to see a little bit of both,” Caputo said. “We’ll play as much of a game as we can but also hopefully get a chance to see a little of everyone. Even though we’ve played five games, if you include Italy, it’s the first night with the lights on and in our game uniforms and our team in front of our home crowd. Hopefully they will see a great effort and a team that has some experience and has built off our trip to Italy.”
