As Beisner mentioned, he was able to turn on his charm and get the digits of one Mark Lieberman, coach of the Gold team at tomorrow’s Derby Classic. Since Beisner is blowing his money betting Broseph’s picks at Keeneland, I had the duty with speaking with Coach Lieberman.
Understandably, he didn’t have too much to say, other than the fact that Louisville signee Terrence Jennings was “very impressive.” He also said that he has spoken with opposing coach Chris O’Hearn, and they discussed how they could get Darius Miller and DeAndre Liggins on the floor at the same time with Louisville signees Jared Swopshire and Jennings.
Lieberman was heroic, however, in tracking down someone who could tell me who was in tonight’s dunk contest, which, apparently, is privileged information that is posted nowhere on the internet…until now! Both future Cards Swopshire and Jennings will participate, as well as DeAndre Liggins. The other five are Chris Singleton (FSU), Ray Shipman (Florida), Yancy Gates (Cincinnati), Emmanuel Negedu (Arizona), and someone else…I’m not sure who, because the gentleman I spoke with said “Woolridge,” who is on neither roster.
Everyone participates in the 3-point contest and 2 v. 2 tournament.
