HOUSTON- The Texas Southern Men's Basketball team officially began preparations for the 2018-19 campaign as they held their first practice this week under new Tigers head coach Johnny Jones.
"We're really excited to get out on the floor and start practicing," said Jones. "We've got a really good group of guys this season and we're excited to start forming those bonds and chemistry that we'll need to be a really good basketball team."

This years' team features several familiar faces along with the additions of talented transfers. Guard Derrick Bruce and center Trayvon Reed headline the Tigers' group of returning key contributors form last season along with guard Robert Lewis.

TSU also welcomed the addition of LSU transfers guard Jalyn Patterson and forward Jeremy Combs.

"We plan on playing an exciting brand of basketball and we would love to encourage our fan base to support us at our two non-conference home games as well as our games in the state of Texas at Baylor, Texas A&M and Lamar," said Jones.

The Tigers are slated to open the season on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at Baylor.
