LMU men's basketball is placing an emphasis on a broad-based training program as the season starts earlier than ever.
Oct. 7, 2013
LOS ANGELES- With the basketball season stretched to more days than ever, the LMU men's basketball program takes a hard look at every form of becoming stronger and healthier during the season, and thanks to the experience of strength coach Drew Rossi, the Lions are taking training to a new level.
The LMU Sports Network followed Rossi around as the Lions transition from offseason strength and conditioning into a full practice schedule as the season started at the end of September - the earliest start in the sports NCAA history. With experience as a player at UMass and then time as a trainer both in the private sector and at the NBA level (was strength coach in the development league), Rossi has the Lions stronger than ever as the 2013-14 season gets underway.
