Russellville Panthers Head Coach Phil Todd will be the coach of the 1996-2014 alumni in the Alumni Basketball Game to be played next Saturday night, November 28, at Logan County High School’s Main Gym.
Jay Allison will coach the team from 1995 and back. It was Allison and the Givin’ Back Program who had the idea of an alumni contest for basketball.
Players were asked to come to a series of tryout practices and to practices as a team. While the idea of the game is provide entertainment for player and spectator alike, expect a bit of competitive spirit and much more than pure exhibition as these players raise funds to benefit their old school and the Givin Back Program.
It is planned to have rosters for both teams set and ready to announce by Monday morning, November 23. Some notables that have already on board are Maurice Hampton, Teco Dickerson, Micheal Morris, Nathan Thompson and Ricky Duncan who all played on the 2000 States Final Four team. Otis Key, Tyrone Thompson, Phillip West, Reggie Collier, Marquis Todd, Todd Kerr, and Donte Wells are a few players that will appear on the Old School team (1995 and before).
