By: Marcus Joseph
The Florida A&M basketball team got to work early Saturday morning in the Al Lawson Multi Purpose Gymnasium, for the team’s first official orange and white scrimmage of the 2011-2012 season.
Players and coaches started Saturday’s scrimmage with a brief meeting with the referees, to go over 2011-2012 MEAC rule changes.
The team tipped-off, and got off to a fast-paced performance, which is what coach Clemon Johnson hopes to implement and utilize with his team this season.
“The scrimmage went quite well,” said Johnson. “I am very pleased with what I saw today.”
