Last Saturday we enjoyed hosting our annual Trinity Basketball Prospect Camp. This is always a great opportunity for interested prospective student-athletes to work out in Sam's Gym and get to know more about Trinity. With a nice manageable camp size, our staff enjoyed getting some quality time working with and evaluating each camper. We were extremely pleased with the energy and effort shown by the campers, who were all willing to try their best with the new drills and work out format.

Yesterday was a great opportunity for our team to get together at Coach Cunningham's house for a cookout. This is a pre-season tradition that lets our guys spend some time away from campus together. We also enjoyed having a few local alumni around. With a few weeks left before practices begin, finding some available time to bond as a group off the court is important. We're fortunate to have a great group of student-athletes this year and can't wait for October 15th to arrive!

Last night, we had our team's compliance meeting, which was led by Coach Cunningham (who also serves as Trinity's Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance). This is a mandatory meeting for any student-athlete to attend who wishes to compete and come out for intercollegiate sports. We hold this meeting as early as possible in the academic year in order to cover important topics such as eligibility requirements, sexual misconduct, drugs/alcohol, hazing, and several academic issues, so that our student-athletes are well prepared for the year ahead.

Today was the first day of Fall classes here at Trinity and the campus is alive again with students running around. Our guys have all gotten their schedules and are beginning to meet their professors. We encourage each of our student-athletes to make the effort early in the semester to get some quality time with each professor. At a university with a small student-professor ratio, this early interaction goes a long way in establishing a positive learning relationship. Our guys are extremely lucky to be learning from some of the best and brightest!

Today was Move-In Day here at Trinity University! Move-In Day marks the opening of dorms and beginning of New Student Orientation for the 2015-16 school year and campus has come alive again. The quiet days of summer around here are no more, as over 600 new Tigers arrived to campus today. The Trinity Orientation team, along with the First Year Residential Life team, does a phenomenal job these next several days welcoming and assimilating all of the new students to the Trinity community.
If you were around campus this morning, you may have seen several members of Trinity Basketball (including a nice and sweaty Coach Cunningham!) helping new students move boxes and dorm-items from cars to dorm rooms as part of Team Trinity. After our new student-athletes were able to get moved into their rooms and pile into Sam's Gymnasium to check-in, we had a great opportunity to get our guys and their families into a room together for a Meet-and-Greet. Coach Cunningham enjoyed welcoming our new Trinity Basketball family members while some of our upperclassmen back on campus were able to come meet up with their new teammates. We are blessed to have such a great group of individuals and families as part of Trinity Basketball.
Welcome Class of 2019!
