Blue Raiders preparing for exhibition game
2010-11 squad has familiar faces and more heightNovember 3, 2010 · MT Athletic Communications
The Blue Raiders are set to begin play at 7:30 p.m. or 30 minutes after the women's game, which is also against Lincoln Memorial, concludes.
Middle Tennessee returns eight players who were a part of winning the Sun Belt regular season title and reaching the postseason for the first time in 21 years. The Blue Raiders are looking to use those experiences to their advantage this season.
When the team takes the floor there will be a few familiar faces in seniors James Washington, Trevor Ottley and Rod Emanuel but it will have a new look in the form of height. Eight players on this year's squad are 6-4 or taller with five of those being at least 6-8.
Gates at Murphy Center open at 4 p.m. prior to the women's game which is set to tipoff at 5:30 p.m. and all tickets are $5.
