HEAD COACH BRIAN “PENNY” COLLINS
“TSU-Fisk is a rival game. They’re up the street. They have a new coach Kenny Anderson who is bringing a new style there – an exciting time for Fisk basketball. So, I’m looking forward to the game, and we want Nashville to come out and support both programs, and hope the Tigers come out with a win.”
REDSHIRT JUNIOR FORWARD JALEN DUKE
“It’s going to be big – a battle between the two schools right here. They’re right down the road, less than a mile apart. It’ll be big – a big crowd. It’s a Nashville battle, so we’re looking forward to it.”
