Memphis Tigers’ Nov. 2 scrimmage against Baylor will take place at Louisiana Tech in Ruston. This is the second year that the Tigers will scrimmage a Division 1 school in the preseason. Last season, Memphis played Alabama in Tuscaloosa. There’s exciting news for Memphis. They will have new uniforms this season provided by Nike.
“New, fresh looks for the 13-14 season. We’re very thankful for Nike wanting to do it,” said Pastner. “It’ll keep us on the cutting edge.”
Josh Gray Will Not Be A Tiger
Coach Pastner has lost out on another prospect for the 2014 class. JUCO player and former Texas Tech point guard Josh Gray has verbally committed to Florida State. He will be joining Chipola College forward Cinmeon Bowers. As much as Pastner loves junior college players, he hasn’t delivered one yet for the 2014-2015 season.
