Hitting the courts: Trojans Men’s, Women’s basketball teams ready for 2010-2011 season
TROY’s men’s and women’s basketball teams will each face challenging schedules in the 2010-11 season.
Coming off the 2010 regular season Sun Belt Conference title, TROY’s men’s basketball team will face what head Coach Don Maestri terms as “the most challenging schedule we have had in Division I.”
“We have never played three Southeastern conference teams in one year,” Maestri said. “We are playing Arkansas, Alabama and Mississippi State. We have more games on the road than we do at home. The good news is that next year a bunch of those teams will return those games.”
Women’s Coach Michael Murphy will see his team take to the court against four teams who made the NCAA Tournament last season, two others who qualified for the WNIT and one other who played in the WBI postseason tournament. The women’s team is coming off a 12-17 season in 2009-10.
