    Why not do this on the 13th a Saturday game which will be better attended? Poor planning.

    AB,
    This game is televised. I guess they figured they would get a bigger crowd for a TV game rather than a regular one. Plus its more face time for Sims.

    Great article about Tyson! I'm happy to say that we're still in touch. What an incredible player! He was like dynamite on that court! I especially liked the comments about his pre-game "meal" consisting mostly of chocolate chip cookies. More than likely they were the ones I used to bake for the team before every single home game,so that made me smile when I read it. Great memories of a great bunch of guys! What a fantastic time in App State Basketball history! I'd love to see us reach that level again. We certainly have the potential!

    Appband, you know who this is and yes, we have the potential. Hopefully it is this year, if not, definitely it will be next year with who we have coming in and who we alread have here. It was a great time in ASU basketball history. Seems just like yesterday. Times flies so fast.

    TP is a baller! I remember watching him play against my highschool. I even had the honor/task of trying to guard him during a pick-up game at Junaluska one summer. Needless to say both ankles were x-rayed the next day. Lucky for me they were only hair line fractures!

    Hi,Brad! What an amazing time that was! I'm so glad we were a part of it. I'll never forget that championship game in Greenville, SC when we beat College of Charleston…watching all those guys I loved so much when they finally…FINALLY…won the SoCon championship they'd come SO CLOSE to winning in the previous years. I cried like a baby when that clock ticked down, the nets were cut, and that trophy was in their hands. APPS-olute joy!

    App Band, maybe you should re-start your tradition of baking cookies for the team. Seemed to bring a good mojo a few years ago.

    AB, the game is also on SportSouth.

    Darryl is a friend and he gets my vote also. In addition to his basketball skills he is a great coach and someone you would want your son to spend time with. I also got to know his mom and dad who are some of the finest people you would ever meet. He and his wife who is a top notch teacher have raised two great children. His son played in the ACC. I haven't spoken to him in a while but the last I knew he was coaching in Durham.

    Robinson was also the prize recruit that arguably began the "modern" era of App basketball. Unfortunately, many of the teams that followed his (and Cremins') haven't lived up to standards they set.

    Tyson was definitely a baller! Man, we had a freakin squad then! Reminds me of the Dirty Birds/Warriors, right Tim!!? Although on a larger scale of course…

    And yes, kudos on the junaluska reference… I hooped out there a time or two as well
