Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Augusta, Ga--A night of basketball fun at Paine College with Lion madness as they gear up for the season ahead.

Both the women's and men's teams introduced to the fans as both have some pretty lofty goals this season. Potential is certainly there with both squads having all conference players on the roster. There's a different buzz around the Lion program. This is the first full year in the Heal Center, football has arrived and there's more excitement around the program.

"There's a lot more energy on campus" said Willie Adams "Students come over here all the time, coach when are you starting the season, when are the guys starting the season. The thing they are so excited about is with the football thing and then they come over and where we know it's going to turn over to basketball"

"Yea, there's a little bit more of a buzz" said Kenny Fluellen "We have the gym so we're staring off fresh and be able to get in the gym more and shoot so there's a lot more what we can do now"

Both the men and women are picked to finish third in their division of the SIAC. They open the season the first week in November.
