KNOXVILLE — Johnson University’s men’s basketball team is off to a great start in preparation for the new season. The first tryout was held last night in the Phillips-Welshimer Building Gym and the second tryout will be held later today at 8 p.m.

There was much effort provided by the Royals to prove that they should be considered for the team again. Coach Nick Marshall had a few remarks about the potential he was already seeing in the team this year.

“I feel that the culture of Johnson basketball is changing for the better,” he said. ” This team could be a really special team.”

The official team will be announced sometime next week.
