"It was great for our kids to play in front of a really good crowd. It was the first time for some of these kids to put on a college uniform in front of fans, so this was a good experience for us, said head coach, Tom Herrion.

After the scrimmage session, Herd basketball players stayed and signed autographs for the fans that were in attendance.
