Shreveport, LA--- The 10th ranked Pilots will be put to the test early with 14 games throughout the month of November which includes their home opener Wednesday night versus Southwestern Assemblies of God University, and exhibition games versus NCAA Division I opponents McNeese State University, LSU, and the University of Arkansas. These games will serve as crucial preparation for the month of December which will see the Pilots take on 6th ranked Union University on a neutral court in Houston, Texas, and a showdown with the 15th ranked Texas Wesleyan University Rams in Fort Worth, Texas.
Wednesday night will be the first chance for Pilot fans to see returning NAIA All-American Fredericko Payne, Derrick Sowell, Freddy Hughes, and Carlon Simmons back in action, along with the 2005-2006 recruiting class which includes the signings of former Southwood High School star Josh Porter who transferred from Stephen F. Austin, former Byrd standout Kyle Blankenship who transferred from the University of Tulsa, and Louisiana Tech transfer Jeremy Johnston who finished his high school career at Airline High School. In addition to the local talent signed by Head Coach Chad McDowell, the Pilots are excited to see 6’8 small-forward, Anton Palmer, and 6’7 post player Shadrach Roome make their debut at the Dock Wednesday night.
