We caught up with head coach Rick Ray, junior guards Craig Sword and Fred Thomas, as well as, strength and conditioning coach Richard Akins.
Ray said the non-conference schedule should be finished shortly. They are waiting on one more high-major contract and then they will announce the non-conference portion of the schedule.
Ray also said that junior guard Trivante Bloodman is not back to 100 percent after having shoulder surgery this offseason. Ray said that has benefitted him though as he has added on some weight.
Ray said both Demetrius Houston and Oliver Black should be on campus for the second summer session starting in July. The incoming freshman have had some delays getting cleared. Ray said Houston is cleared and Black should have no problem getting cleared.
I will have a notebook in Friday’s paper with a feature on the summer and workouts in Sunday’s paper.
