Memphis basketball coach Penny Hardaway said his No. 1 recruiting class has looked as advertised this summer. Drew Hill, The Commercial Appeal
The Memphis men’s basketball team stood in a line, towering over the children seated in front of them on the floor of the Larry O. Finch Center for coach Penny Hardaway’s basketball camp.
One-by-one each of the team’s stars — most of whom are a part of nation’s No. 1 recruiting class — took turns stepping to the front and introducing themselves to the younger audience.
“Woo!” the children yelled, clapping twice after each introduction.
Fittingly, Hardaway had a similar response when his new players stepped on the floor for the team’s first summer practice Saturday.
