• Forward thinking with Marcus Cousin
Scott Stanchak of D-League.com got a chance to speak with many of the All-Star candidates before they were voted into the game about what it would mean to them to make the All-Star game.
One of the players he spoke with was Toros center Marcus Cousin:
Marcus Cousin, Forward – Austin Toros
Credentials: 14.4 ppg, 8.4 rpg, 1.2 bpg
Player’s Take: “That would mean a lot to me. I think with my playing I can get there, and hopefully I can.”
Toros Nation’s own D’Ann Faught got a chance to catch up with Cousin after his selection. See what he had to say in her video interview.
• Tibbetts on Ehambe
The Tulsa Beacon talked to 66ers coach Nate Tibbetts recently about the loss of guard Moses Ehambe, who was traded to the Toros last week.
“Moses was a big part of the Tulsa 66ers family the past two seasons and was instrumental in our run to the D-League finals last year,” said 66ers head coach Nate Tibbetts. “We believe Austin is a great opportunity for Moses to further showcase his talents and we wish him great success with the Toros.”
