The Crispus Attucks boys basketball season will kick off this Tuesday, November 22nd when they take on the Shortridge Bluedevils at 7:30pm at Shortridge. The Flying Tigers return two starters from last year in guard Teyon Scanlan and forward Nike Sibande. These two led all scorers during the 2015-2016 season. Joining Teyon in the starting backcourt will be Zac Owens and Jamal Harris who add a blend of speed, shooting, and athleticism. Alex Cooley, Micah Poole, and Tyran Lewis are also set to play key roles in the Tigers backcourt. Joining Nike in the front court will be Jaiquan Edwards, Derrick Briscoe, and Kyle Beatty. This trio bring a nice mix of length and athleticism to create matchup problems both down below and on the perimeter.
The Tigers begin the season ranked 14th in the AP Coaches Poll and look to start their march to Bankers Life Fieldhouse in roaring fashion with a win tomorrow night. Come out and support our Tigers.
