REDDING, CA. — Simpson University is deploying its men’s team on the court once again as the new season of basketball is officially underway.
The team kicked off the season with a match against Lincoln University (LU) in a fierce game of court supremacy, resulting in LU with 82 points and the Red Hawks (Simpson) with 78, a close four-point difference. Competition was tough this time around as Lincoln recently brought on a brand-new head coach who is none other than Gary Payton, a legendary point guard who served a 13-year tenure with the Seattle Supersonics.
