Brady, Tigers open practice on Friday
The practice took place in the auxiliary gym of the Maravich Assembly Center, the same place the team will gather for its Saturday practice beginning at 7 a.m. before the team makes its annual appearance at the fundraising walk for diabetes on the LSU campus.
Unlike the preparations for the Labor Day weekend trip to Canada in which the practices were dominated by offensive preparations, the opening night practice featured a more defensive theme.
"I thought it was a real good first day. When we were going to Canada, all we did was work on the offense," said Brady, entering his 11th season as the head coach of the Tigers. "This practice we went some two hours on defense and rebounding. I thought our attitude and concentration was good. I felt good about it. We're going to come back and have a good practice Saturday morning and twice on Sunday. I know our guys will be sore early on, but I thought overall with five new guys and our returning guys I thought it was very good and we accomplished the things we needed to accomplish. I think our players felt good about what they were able to do from a conditioning standpoint which was also quite good."
The Tigers first exhibition game is set for Nov. 1 at the Maravich Center against Belhaven and will open the regular season on Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. against Southeastern Louisiana.
