The Miami Dade College’s men’s basketball team held open tryouts on Aug. 31 in the gymnasium at Kendall Campus. It featured more than 30 hopefuls looking to join the team.
Students in attendance were split into groups of five and played against each other in a series of scrimmages while the assistant basketball coaches observed.
In order to try out, participants had to meet the following requirements: students must have 12 credits for the fall semester (and maintain 12 credits at all times), a physical exam that cannot be older than one year, and general insurance.
Players will be notified by the coaches if they made the team.
