After winning an exhibition game against Emory on Saturday afternoon, the College of Charleston men’s basketball team turned their attention to their regular season opener at Furman University, set for Friday night at 8 p.m.
“I’m just happy we’ve got a game and we get to go out and try to perform and improve,” head coach Earl Grant said about Friday’s date with Furman.
The Cougars return major contributors from last season in senior forward Adjehi Baru, senior guard Anthony Stitt, and redshirt sophomore Canyon Barry. Last season’s sixth man, Joe Chealey, looks to give the same scoring punch from the starting lineup this year. Meanwhile, Charleston has a group of impressive freshmen ready to make an impact.
Listen to Coach Grant speak about all these players and his learning process during his first months at the College in the one-on-one interview above.
