It didn’t take long for JSU’s first year coach Ray Harper to implement his up-tempo style of hoops into the Gamecock program. In their first exhibition game JSU scored 105 points in a win over Shorter. It’s the first time JSU has reached the century mark in 12 seasons. The Gamecocks open the regular season next Friday (November 11) at Tulsa.
