Basketball Preseason Media Day

Members of the men’s and women’s basketball coaching staffs met with the local media Wednesday at a new venue for their annual preseason golf outing. Brad Brownell and Audra Smith are preparing their teams for the 2014-15 season, and both were joined by their assistants to talk about prospects for their respective programs at The Cliffs at Keowee Springs.

Brownell and Smith spent the better part of 25 minutes apiece with the local media, answering questions regarding their respective teams. Brownell returns four starters, but lost leading scorer and rebounder K.J. McDaniels to the NBA Draft. Smith, meanwhile, welcomes 10 newcomers to the Lady Tiger program this season.

WCCP-FM (105.5) was also on site for a remote broadcast. The radio crew spent time with Brownell and Smith, as well as Mike Winiecki, Steve Smith and Lucas McKay from the men’s staff, and Daryl Oliver and Kayla Ard from the women’s staff.
