Get Ready for Pioneer Hoops!

The basketball season is just around the corner. The regular season kicks off at home with the Vestle "Pops" Hudson Classic on November 2 and 3. The men's team held a media day and practice for fans recently. Observers say this is one of the best men's teams in many years.

"We've got one of the best big men in the country," said Coach Rusty Melvin. "Barry Robertson is in the top 100 for JuCo (Junior Colleges). Overall, this is probably the biggest team we've ever had. We have seven players over six foot six. We're just deep. Probably one of our best strengths will be rebounds."

Meanwhile, the Vol State Lady Pioneers are also getting ready for a big season. They kick off the season with the men on November 2 and 3. Many of the home games have both men and women's teams playing back-to-back...so you can get plenty of hoops action at one time.

Games are free for Vol State students, faculty, staff and alumni. It's just $5 for members of the public. We suggest you print up this season schedule and put it up in the office or on the fridge. We hope to see you out there this season to root on the Pioneers to victory!
