I'll be at Memphis Madness tonight

Posted on: October 15, 2010 9:07 am
 
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The official start of basketball practice has arrived.

Dozens of schools will host "Madness" celebrations to launch the season -- everybody from Duke to North Carolina to Gonzaga and Kansas State. I've spent the past few years at places such as Kentucky and Kansas, and those were terrific. Tonight I'll be at FedExForum watching Josh Pastner unveil a Memphis team that's ranked 11th in the final preseason Top 25 (and one) thanks to the return of Will Coleman and Wesley Witherspoon and a freshman class highlighted by Will Barton and local products Tarik Black, Chris Crawford and McDonald's All-American Joe Jackson.

The event is expected to draw a capacity crowd of more than 18,000.

One of the nation's top available prospects, Adonis Thomas, will be among the spectators.

They already stopped by remember?  They're on their way to Kentucky now. Wink

Adonis Thomas might as well go ahead and sign that letter of intent, because he played AAU ball with all the incoming freshman besides the Barton's and Tsafack. I'm ready for this year's season, it's gonna be very exciting.
