Douglass hoops planning Opening Night Tip Off Party

The first chance to see the 2010-11 Douglass Trojans basketball team comes Friday night at 9 p.m. at the Opening Night Tip Off Party at the Douglass gym, sort of a Midnight Madness-style event on the first day of practice.

There will be lots of interactive events for the fans, including a dunk contest, 3-point shootout and half-court shot contest. The team will be selling T-shirts, posters and their famous sweatsuits.

One player on the team, Dorian Williams, already has committed to Missouri State, and multiple others have scholarship offers as the Trojans try to follow up on last year’s 30-0 run to the Class 4A state championship.

Douglass coach Terry Long has put together an unbelievably tough schedule this season. Aside from hosting their own classic with some strong out-of-state teams coming in, the Trojans will play in the Dallas/Fort Worth Thanksgiving Hoopfest, the Beach Ball Classic at Myrtle Beach, S.C. the week after Christmas and the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions in Springfield, Mo., in early January. And of course, there’s that always tough All City Conference schedule.
