BOCA RATON, FL - A pep rally on Thursday night helped the men's and women's basketball teams prepare for the beginning of their practice schedule. The event included introductions of both teams and coaching staffs, a student shooting contest, a dance team perfomance and a student slam dunk contest.
The teams began their practices in earnest on Friday. After the men's session in the morning men's head coach Mike Jarvis was happy with the team's performance.
"Everyone showed up healthy and in shape and we had a good practice," Jarvis said.
The men's team will open their season on November 4 with an exhibition against Northwood. The women will open the year with an exhibition against Lynn on November 8 as part of a women's-men's doubleheader.
