LOS ANGELES -- Leading up to the official start of the 2012-13 LMU men's basketball season, LMU Head Coach Max Good has been saying that this group will be the hardest working team in the West Coast Conference. And after the Crimson and Navy Scrimmage on Saturday, they are doing pretty well so far.
It seemed that every player hit the floor at some point during the 45 minute game - the Lions played two 20 minute halts and a third five minute "overtime" period - diving very every loose ball, attempting to take a charge or making a sacrifice on team defense.
"We will leave everything out on the floor every game and our opponents will know we were there," said Head Coach Max Good. "Seeing how we played each other, they got after each other pretty good. We have some pretty good pieces and you could see that today. We have a whole lot of work to do, but I am very pleased at how hard they played today."
The Lions interchanged players throughout the scrimmage with each team featuring various line-ups. Season tickets were also available for distribution during the day as the Crimson and Navy Scrimmage was part of a full list of activities highlighting Madness weekend.
A capacity crowd over 3,000 packed Gersten Pavilion the previous night for Madness at Midnight. Saturday began with women's basketball playing their Crimson and Navy Scrimmage with the In N Out Truck making an appearance in between the two scrimmages.
Season tickets are still available, including special Friends and Family pricing. Visit the Ticket Homepage for more information. The Lions will play their one exhibition game on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m., taking on Point Loma.
