Radio Show talks Basketball

We had the pleasure of attending the Gamecock Huddle show tonight with the "Voice", Mike Parris and Associate Athletic Director David Farrar. We got a chance to be on air for a few minutes, hitting some highlights from the football game this weekend. Tonight's show, however, revolved around basketball. Coach James Green and Coach Annette Watts made the trip to Tennessee today for the OVC Basketball meetings. They made it back just in time for the radio show.

If it's true that a team will take on the personality of its coach, both of our teams will have what it takes to win. Coach Green and Coach Watts bring energy, discipline, and hard work to the court each day. Talk to either one of them for two minutes, and you will know it for yourself. Coach Green talked about his 5 AM practices with the men's team. Practicing at 5 AM gets his players through with practice in time for class, and gives them the rest of the day to live the life of most college students. Of course, you can't keep getting up for 5:00 practice if you stay out late.

Coach Watts talked about taking her team to run hills on 11th street east of campus. Running 25 hills showed Coach Watts what kind of character this team has. They have a treacherous schedule this year, playing teams like Florida State, Auburn, and Georgia Tech. However, our team is determined to play as hard as they can, and be in their best physical condition.

We don't know what the record will look like this year, but we are sure we are heading in the right direction.
