P.J. Tucker Assigned to D-League, Toros to Air on NBA TV

Former Longhorn P.J. Tucker was assigned to the Colorado 14ers of the NBA Develpoment League by the NBA's Toronto Raptors last Friday. Tucker helped lead Colorado over the Toros on Tuesday scoring 15 points and grabbing five boards in the 14ers 95-90 win. We won't mention what a horrible name the 14ers is. Oops, just did. Colorado takes on the Toros here in Austin on Wednesday, January 24. Apparently at 10am.

NBA TV will be broadcasting 12 games during the D-League's MLK Showcase from Monday, January 15 through Wednesday, January 17 at the Sioux Falls Arena in Sioux Falls, S.D. The tourney showcases the D-League's best talent (like Tucker and the Toros' James White) for NBA scouts. The two games featuring the Toros will be broadcast Monday, January 15 at 5pm against the Sioux Falls Skyforce and Wednesday, January 17 at 11am against the Bakersfield Jam.
