2016 Tip Off Practice & Dinner

  • Larry Finch Center (map)

The 2016-2017 University of Memphis Basketball Season is nearing “Tip Off”!  One of the great benefits of Rebounder membership is having a 1st chance to see our exciting Tiger Basketball Squad in person.  Preceding the Rebounders Annual Tip Off Dinner at 6 p.m. Tuesday, October 18 in the Penny Hardaway Hall of Fame, an exclusive closed practice for Rebounders and invited guests only will be held at 4:30 p.m. on campus at the Larry Finch Center.


You will have the great pleasure to see our new Head Coach Tubby Smith and his staff in person coaching our 2016-2017 team led by projected All American candidate Dedric Lawson, returning players Markel Crawford, K.J. Lawson, Jeremiah Martin, Craig Randall, Jake McDowell, newcomers Jimario Rivers, 6-11 Chad Ryhoek, Keon Clergeot, Christian Kessee and others. 


BUT WATCH OUT!  You might have to dodge some fast passes and speeding basketball stars as the action is sure to be fast & furious at the practice…and dinner too for that matter.


Now’s the time to “step up to the line” and “shoot” your reservations to www.memphis to insure a spot on the Rebounder Team for practice and at the table for dinner.  The cost is $35 per person or $280 a table.  So, fastbreak now as this year’s event is sure to be a “slam dunk fun time”!


Go Tigers!
