Texas Southern Basketball Set To Take Their Talents To Beijing, China

After having a great season and making the NCAA tournament. The Texas Southern Tigers basketball team will be taking their talents to Beijing, China to play some exhibition games.

HOUSTON- The Texas Southern Tigers basketball team will travel to Beijing, China from June 19th to June
30th to participate in a series of exhibition games set to be played abroad against Chinese basketball organizations.

“This is a great opportunity for our basketball team,” said TSU head coach Mike Davis. “It will be without a doubt a once in a lifetime opportunity for many of our student-athletes and we’re happy to be able to participate and showcase our brand of basketball on a global stage.”

The Tigers scheduled trip marks yet another impressive milestone for the team this season as TSU won the conference tournament and earned an NCAA berth to conclude the 2014-15 campaign.

It marked the second time in TSU history that the team won back-to-back tournament titles, as Texas Southern won titles in 1994 and 1995.

“Anytime you get the chance to expose student-athletes to new cultures and ways of life it’s a good thing,” said Davis. “We had a very hardworking group of young men on our team last year and they deserve to be able to make a trip of this magnitude and represent our university internationally.”

Houston Football Partners with Feed the Children

PMembers of the UH program distribute food and hygiene products at Denver Harbor Multi-Service Center.

 

HOUSTON – Student-athletes from the Houston Football program spent the middle of their day Tuesday at the Denver Harbor Multi-Service Center in Houston’s eastside, partnering with Feed the Children, an organization that exists to end childhood hunger.

 

The student-athletes joined forces with Houston-based Target Hunger and Colcord Hotels to package, distribute and load food, bottled water and hygiene products. Working with Feed the Children, volunteers prepared and delivered more than 100,000 meals to 1,200 families in need in a single day.

“It felt good to give back to our community. It may have been a little hot, but you definitely feel better helping others out,” said senior safety Adrian McDonald. “Being able to help out the less fortunate, loading their cars up with much-needed food, it’s a good feeling to give back. Coming to school here isn’t just about football; you have to give back to your community too, and our team knows that.”

Organized by McDonald and senior running back Kenneth Farrow, two groups of Houston Football student-athletes each spent an hour distributing meals at the event. Members of group one included Farrow, Donald Gage, Ryan Jackson, Zach Johnson, Mac Long, Corey Manges and Javin Webb, while members of group two included Tyus Bowser, Lee Hightower, D’Juan Hines, Melvin Holland, William Jackson, McDonald, Steven Taylor and Brandon Wilson.

Tuesday’s event was Houston Football’s second in the past few weeks as members of the program assisted those affected by the Houston Memorial Day floods.
