Wednesday, October 19, 2016---USC Men's Basketball Scrimmage

Basketball Coach Andy Enfield invited Galen Founders to come to a men's scrimmage at Galen Center. The upstairs practice gym was noisy when my husband Jim and I arrived. The men's team was running its scrimmage, and the gym was full of spectators.

Men's Basketball teamTrojan Candy took a picture of the team playing. Our new players are tall, quick and athletic. Trojan Candy can't wait for the season to start!

During the scrimmage, yummy appetizers were served. I especially liked the deep fried coconut shrimp the best.

After the scrimmage ended, Coach Enfield had the players sit at the north end of the gym. They were introduced by Jordan Moore. Each player spoke a little about himself.
